A millionaire Democrat running for U.S. Congress in Pennsylvania is a population control zealot who believes in taxing families with more than two kids for being “irresponsible breeders.”
As a challenger to U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick for the 1st Congressional District of Pennsylvania, Scott Wallace has received endorsements from both Planned Parenthood and the National Organization for Women (NOW). According to PJ Media, Wallace has donated close to $7 million to population control groups over the past 20 years through his Wallace Global Fund. Some of the groups Wallace has donated to advocate for taxing families with more than two children. More from PJ Media:
Between 1997 and 2003, Wallace gave $420,000 to Zero Population Growth (ZPG) — now Population Connection — an organization co-founded by ‘Population Bomb’ author Paul Ehrlich, Fox News reported.
From before its inception, ZPG had announced its intentions to tax large families for the ‘privilege of irresponsible breeding.’ A 1968 brochure advocated abortion to stabilize population growth and claimed that ‘no responsible family should have more than two children.’ Therefore, ‘irresponsible people who have more than two children should be taxed to the hilt for the privilege of irresponsible breeding.’
Another group that Wallace gave $20,000 to is the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy, which has an executive board member named Herman Daly who advocates for a coercive two-child policy requiring families to buy licenses if they have more.
When confronted with such population control extremism, Wallace’s campaign communications director Zoe Wilson-Meyer avoided addressing the issue directly, choosing to emphasize only Wallace’s support for abortion.
“The Wallace Global Fund has for decades been a leader in helping women gain access to family planning,” Wilson-Meyer said. “Former Co-Chair Scott Wallace is proud of the work of grantees like Planned Parenthood in empowering women and protecting reproductive rights and will stand up for Pennsylvania women.”
Wallace’s connection to Planned Parenthood goes back a long way; his mother once worked for one affiliate in Bucks County and he bragged about it on his site.
“While we have made great strides since my mother’s time at Planned Parenthood of Bucks County, women’s rights are under attack everyday (sic). With the entire Congress and the White House under far-right, anti-choice control, it is more important than ever to protect Planned Parenthood’s work and the great value they deliver to the women of America,” he said in a statement online.
Sounds like a real winner of a candidate.
