The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is trying to raise billions of dollars for global population control.
At a summit in London this week, the Gates have been advocating birth control as a means to combat the problem.
"I had to wrestle with which pieces of religion do I use and believe in my life, what would I counsel my daughters to do," Melinda Gates, a practicing Catholic, told Newsweek.
"I believe in not letting women die, I believe in not letting babies die, and to me that's more important than arguing about what method of contraception [is right]," she said.
She added that "we're not serving the other piece of the Catholic mission, which is social justice" if she didn't support birth control.
But Wendy Wright, executive director of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute, told One News Now that contraception is not the answer.
"The Gates Foundation is not seeking to eliminate poverty, but rather to eliminate poor people -- to eliminate those who don't meet their standards of living, which is a very anti-human being perspective," she warned.
**Wright shared more of her observations on the issue, on CBN News Channel Morning News, July 13.
