Warren Buffett, the multi-billionaire known as “The Oracle of Omaha,” is perhaps the biggest private funder of abortion in the history of the world.
Through his self-funded Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, he has given millions and millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood over the years. The regressive publication Vox calls him “the biggest funder of access to abortion for low-income women in the United States.” Vox estimates that Buffett’s foundation gave Planned Parenthood $76,967,256 in 2017-2018 and further estimates that Buffet has given almost $1.5 billion to the baby butchers since 2001.
Using Planned Parenthood’s estimate of the cost of a first-trimester abortion, Buffett gave abortionists enough money to dismember 219,906 innocent unborn babies in 2017-2018 alone. Buffett is paying for about 46% of all the abortions Planned Parenthood does.
The Guttmacher Institute is the research arm of Planned Parenthood. According to Guttmacher’s figures, the $1.5 billion Buffett has deposited in Planned Parenthood coffers is enough to kill 2.7 million babies before they ever get a chance to draw their first breath. If one believes in the sanctity of unborn human life, as both science and the Bible urge us to do, that is a monstrous total. These are Hitler-esque numbers.
Jesus spoke these sobering words to his disciples: “Stumbling blocks are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble” (Luke 17:1-2).
If there’s something worse than getting thrown into the ocean with a cement block tied around your head, what would that something be?
In Dante’s Inferno, damned souls are punished for eternity in a fashion that fits their crimes, each punishment a symbolic instance of poetic justice. Fortune tellers, for instance, must walk forward with their heads on backward, unable to see what is ahead, because they sought to peek into the future through forbidden means.
The 7th Circle of Hell in Dante’s vision is reserved for the violent. There they, along with Attila the Hun and other bloodthirsty tyrants, are immersed forever in a river of boiling blood and fire as punishment for wallowing in blood during their earthly lives. If they try to rise from this river, the Centaurs who patrol this circle of hellfire arrows at them to keep them submerged in their place of torment.
The punishments in the 7th Circle fit the crime. The soul of an individual who kills only one person stands with his legs in burning blood, while tyrants stand submerged to the tops of their heads.
Where Dante would place Warren Buffett is a matter of conjecture, of course, but with the blood of 3 million innocent babies on his hands, it’s reasonable to think Dante would picture him submerged to his eyelids in boiling blood.
The Silent Scream is a documentary produced in 1984 by former abortionist Bernard Nathanson. The documentary uses ultrasound technology to provide video of a baby undergoing an abortion who instinctively tries to avoid the instruments of his torture and death. When the instruments of torture penetrate his tiny little body, he opens his mouth in a silent scream.
When Warren Buffett stands before the Judge of the living and the dead, the screams will no longer be silent. It may be that Buffett will be sentenced to endure the shrieking and screaming of millions of tortured babies for all eternity. His hands may be bound so that he will be unable to stop his ears.
Jesus said the day would come when, “The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:42). Mr. Buffett may discover the brutal, horrifying truth that Jesus meant exactly what he said.
