Warren Buffett's new philanthropic alliance with fellow billionaire 
Bill Gates won widespread praise this week, but anti-abortion 
activists did not join in, instead assailing the two donors for their 
longtime support of Planned Parenthood and international birth-
control programs.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to which Buffett has pledged 
the bulk of his $44-billion fortune, devotes the vast majority of its 
funding to combating disease and poverty in developing countries. 
Less than 1 percent has gone to Planned Parenthood over the years.

"The merger of Gates and Buffett may spell doom for the families of 
the developing world," said the Rev. Thomas Euteneuer, a Roman 
Catholic priest who is president of Human Life International.

Referring to Josef Mengele, the infamous Nazi death camp doctor, 
Euteneuer said Buffett "will be known as the Dr. Mengele of 
philanthropy unless he repents."
