Although the US stock market speculator portrays himself as the patron of minorities, the picture is far more complex. While he supports the Black Lives Matter movement with significant amounts, he also lavishly sponsors a network called Planned Parenthood that runs abortion clinics. As is known, abortion is one of the key threats that black communities face in the United States.
Known for organising daily protests in the United States following George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter has been in the global spotlight for over a month now. One of the major supporters of the radical organisation fighting for the rights of African Americans is US stock market speculator George Soros.
In 2016, the Washington Times published an article saying liberal foundations have secured BLM of their support. The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy announced the formation of the Black-Led Movement Fund, a six-year pooled donor campaign aimed at raising 100 million dollars for the Movement for Black Lives coalition, the Washington Times wrote.
That funding was to come in addition to more than 33 million dollars in grants provided to the Black Lives Matter movement by George Soros's Open Society Foundations (OSF), according to the Washington Times article.
Ken Zimmerman, director of OSF programmes in the US, denied that OSF had ever donated such a large chunk of money to BLM.
Interestingly, Borealis Philanthropy also appears on Soros's payroll. According to OFS's official website, it received over 2 million dollars in grants from Soros's network in 2016 alone.
Also in 2016, Breitbart Jerusalem, citing a leaked document, reported that OSF awarded 650 thousand dollars to Black Lives Matter in 2015 to invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.
OSF's database also reveals that George Soros is not the sole fiscal sponsor of the BLM movement in the US. In 2018, an organisation called Release Leads received 279,860 dollars to host public events involving, among other things, the organisation of public live events featuring the Black Lives Matter UK.
However, while Soros pretends to care about black lives, he pumps huge sums into an organisation called Planned Parenthood, which maintains abortion clinics.
In a lengthy article the US Media Research Center has already revealed the names of the liberal donors who tend to send money to PP. The Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation donated nearly 231 million dollars, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation gave away $22.8 million, while the third most generous donation, a total of 18.3 million dollars came from Soros's Open Society Foundations (then known as the Open Society Institute). The article also notes that Soros's organisation undertook to pay an additional 20 million dollars for a 4-year period.
In addition, according to OSF's official website, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund also received 10 million dollars in 2017, along with several smaller donations.
PP CEO Alexis McGill Johnson, an African-American woman, recently announced PP's support for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden against Donald Trump.
.@PPact endorsed @JoeBiden because he has pledged to fight to not just protect but also expand access to sexual and reproductive health care — while Donald Trump has done everything in his power to take access away.

McGill Johnson can also be connected with George Soros through organisations other than PP. The CEO's introduction reads that she is a board member of an NGO called Color of Change. In 2018, this organisation received 350 thousand dollars from OSF.
This is curious because abortion is one of the biggest enemies of the black community in the United States, even though the figurs show a declining trend. According to the official figures, more than 19 million black babies have been aborted since 1973.
According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the abortion rate for white women was 6.6 per cent in 2016, with 109 abortions per 1,000 children born. The same rate for black women was 25.1 per cent, with 401 abortions per 1,000 babies born.
