Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is being called "the true face of abortion."
The Media Research Center's Culture and Media Institute discovered that Buffett gave roughly $1.2 billion to abortion groups around the world between 2001 and 2012.
That's potentially enough money to abort the entire population of Chicago -- or more than two-and-a-half million lives.
Among the groups Buffett helped fund are Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the Population Council. The biggest portion, almost $300 million, went to Planned Parenthood.
The major media outlets often report on Buffett's "philanthropy," but they've ignored his billion dollar abortion funding.
"The liberal media love two things unconditionally: abortion and Warren Buffett," said Dan Gainor, vice president of MRC's Business and Culture. "Although I suppose it's really one thing they love because according to our research, abortion and Warren Buffett are synonymous."
Kristan Hawkins, of Students for Life, says pro-life supporters need to fight back to counteract Buffett's extreme pro-abortion agenda.
Hawkins told CBN News that U.S. taxpayer funds are clearly not needed by Planned Parenthood so pro-life forces should focus their energy on getting Congress to defund the abortion industry.
Hawkins talked more about the Media Research Center's findings on CBN News Today, May 14.
