$575M in Omnibus Bill on Family Planning, Threats to Biodiversity

'This is incredibly messed up... '

(Adam Andrzejewski – RealClear Wire) Hiding in the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill that Congress passed a few days before Christmas is a $575 million fund for “family planning/reproductive health” in areas where “population growth threatens biodiversity or endangered species.”

It’s unclear how the funds would be used, like what type of birth control it is promoting, but it appears to support reducing population growth — to protect plants and animals, Fox News reported.

Several on the right were eager to criticize the use of taxpayer funds, including the congressman who found it, Rep. Dan Bishop, calling it “sinister.”

He said he and his staff were reading through all 4,155 pages of the omnibus bill and he tweeted “some of the most egregious provisions in the bill.”

“There’s a chilling anti-human synergy between the Left’s pet projects, from throttling energy production and raising the cost of living to outright killing people in the womb. It’s all about making fewer, less vibrant, and wholly dependent people. It’s truly evil,” Minnesota House Representative-elect Walter Hudson wrote.

“This is profoundly disturbing. Kudos to whoever found it,” Heritage Foundation analyst David Ditch tweeted.

“This is incredibly messed up. Sure, let’s protect endangered species – but let’s not do so at the expense of peoples’ lives,” The Daily Signal editor-in-chief Katrina Trinko commented.

While the U.S. Department of State makes sure to say on its website that “The U.S. does not endorse population “stabilization” or “control,” its funding actions speak louder than words.
