Since then, the money allocated by the MacArthur Foundation alone to GIRE amounts to more than $2.5 million (about 50 million Mexican pesos).
Another of the financial foundations funding GIRE, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, has given the organization close to $1.8 million (about 36 million Mexican pesos) since 2000.
The feminist method: lying
Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language sister news agency, Pilar Rebollo, director of Steps for Life in Mexico, pointed out that although “this video is not new,” it does serve to “uncover” the truth about the abortion industry.
“We haven’t been on top of uncovering their lies,” she lamented, because in the video you can see “such cynicism as ‘well, that’s how we did it,’ and they laugh.”
“It’s no longer surprising,” this method of feminism, she said, and noted that in recent years the abortion agenda has spread false reports that there are women in Mexican prisons convicted of getting an abortion.
“Their method of lying, inflating, exaggerating isn’t new,” Rebollo said.
Rebollo warned that “we cannot allow further legislation, arming movements, or creating ideologies, with lies, with that cynicism.”
This video clip, she emphasized, “just because it’s old, is never out of date. There are always surprises.”
“And that surprise we have been seeing is conversation of feminists in which it’s normal, natural, and even something to laugh about among themselves to say ‘well, we lie and exaggerate.’”
“How scary” that GIRE “is called ‘Group for Information on Chosen Reproduction,’” Rebollo continued, “and how scary is that method of distorting the truth, of manipulating it to obtain other types of ends and benefits.”

“But we mustn’t let up and we cannot be asleep in the face of this,” the pro-life leader said, because “they’re lying to the woman (telling her) that she can’t be a mother and that she doesn’t know how to be a mother, that maternity is a diagnosis.”
“They are alienating her from the truth, from nature, from everyday life to create another alternate reality,” she charged.
Frida Espinosa of the Youth and Life platform told ACI Prensa that for years, abortion advocates have “used death from clandestine abortion as an argument, providing hundreds of figures that can’t be verified anywhere.”
“Even so, the media and feminist groups don’t question them,” she criticized.
“The truth behind this data is manipulation and deception. And although it’s something we already knew, Marta Lamas, an activist who has spent years trying to legalize the murder of human beings, accepts it.”
Espinosa warned “that’s the reality of the movement: They always seek to change the truth to achieve their personal interests, no matter who they have to deceive or manipulate.”
