A viral video showing Vassar College's alumni president referring to a Bill and Melinda Gates foundation as "the Institute of Population Control" has The Associated Press trying to whitewash the slip of the tongue with a "fact" check.

The invited speaker at the event, Laurie Schwab Zabin, a founding director of the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, later corrected the name, the AP reports. However, that doesn't mean that Zabin — who died in 2020 — and the foundation weren't promoting population control.

In fact, the Institute for Population and Reproductive Health is a supporter of the International Conference on Family Planning, the Advance Family Planning advocacy group and the Population Reference Bureau, all of which advocate for population control in some way. Schwab also served on the national board of directors of Planned Parenthood, and helped shape its polices.

In tandem, she worked closely with obstetrician Dr. Alan Guttmacher, who was Planned Parenthood's president and the American Eugenics Society's vice president, in establishing the Guttmacher Institute, another agency promoting family planning.
