Bill Gates Using Vaccines to Kill People Around the World?

The headline reads "Bill Gates says vaccines can help reduce world population."

Bill Gates recently said at a conference:

"The world today has 6.8 billion people... that's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent."

The conclusion of Mike Adams, the writer from Natural News, makes a tremendous, illogical leap.  Adams concludes from Bill Gate's statement, "Clearly, this statement implies that vaccines are a method of population reduction."  He then goes on to state that vaccines are good for population reduction through the following:
  • They might kill people slowly.
  • They might reduce fertility.
  • They might increase the death rate from a future pandemic.
Clearly?  Not really.  The writer is using the phrase "population reduction" in a different way than Gates, either through ignorance or an attempt to attack Gates or vaccines.  Most probably, an attack on vaccines.  Too frequently, people speak out against something so much that they start making nonsensical attacks in order to prove their point.  In the end, this damages their argument. 

What if the point Gates was trying to make was that in a healthier environment like Europe or America, people choose to have less kids?  This is thought to be true and would appear to be what Gates would mean by "population reduction."  I'm not a vaccine fan, but it is fallacious to conclude that Gates thinks of vaccines as a method of killing people.  Gates is just rehashing the common belief that if you provide people with an environment of healthier living, longer life spans, and less infant and child mortality, then they will have less children. 

A Public Health Report from the 1970s stated that in order to reduce population we need to "Reduce current infant and child mortality rates sharply."  Reduce population while reducing death?  That's the theory.  The thought goes that if people know their one child will live through to adulthood, then they will just have one child.

We don't have to agree with that theory, but people like Gates who promote population reduction through better health care are not proposing mass genocide by using vaccines.  Gates appears to have a good heart and is trying to do his best to help the world.  Obviously, like all of us, he is limited by what he understands to be best, but we do a disservice to the man by labeling him as an intentional killer of humans around the world because he supports vaccines. 

All he is doing is reiterating the popular notion out there that if we can insure kids won't die of diseases that are preventable, people will want to have fewer children.  This decrease in death from disease will be brought about through vaccines and better health care.  The resulting decrease in population will not be brought out by poisonous vaccines but through people wanting and having less children.  This will be implemented through contraception and abortion (reproductive health services). 

Now, that statement is flat out in support of abortion as a means of decreasing population because "reproductive health services" is codeword for abortion, but I doubt that he is proposing creating poisonous concoctions to inject children with.  He does appear to clearly be for abortion.  However, it is an illogical leap to say that he is trying to kill off humanity through vaccines. 

We don't need any more illogical articles from people against vaccines.  It damages the cause of the logical articles out there.
