A millionaire Democratic Candidate for Congress spent more than seven million dollars on an organization that advocates for taxing families “to the hilt” for “the privilege of irresponsible breeding.”
The candidate, Scott Wallace, was endorsed by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and the National Organization for Women. In addition, the candidate has used his “Wallace Global Fund” to donate to population control groups since 1997.
Between 1997 and 2003, Wallace gave $420,000 to a group called Zero Population Growth, now known as Population Connection, which is an organization that was co-founded by “Population Bomb” author Paul Ehrlich.
Paul Ehrlich, the author who co-founded ZPG, sparked concern by writing that in the near future the human population would outgrow the food supply. Furthermore, in his writings, he called abortion “a highly effective weapon in the armory of population control.”
Wallace also gave $20,000 in 2010 to the Center for the advancement of the Steady State Economy (CASSE), a radical environmentalist organization that views economic growth as undesirable. CASSE supports an economy with “stable or mildly fluctuating levels” and a society with equal birth and death rates. CASSE calls this stagnant state of affairs “maturing.”
Further, Herman Daly, an Executive Board member of CASSE advocated for reproductive licenses. The governmental control over birth would ensure that women have only two children unless they buy a license for more children – from other women. Daly claimed that his plan is the “best plan yet offered” to limit population growth.
While Wallace’s track record indicates that he is a staunch advocate for population control his campaign communications director, Zoe Wilson-Meyer, did not address whether Wallace still believes in taxing families for having too many children or if he still desired to see governmental licenses for reproduction.
“The Wallace Global Fund has for decades been a leader in helping women gain access to family planning. 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,” Wilson-Meyer told Fox News in an email.
The aforementioned organizations utilize deceptive measures in advertising to forward their agendas onto unsuspecting families that desire aid in better planning for their future, but instead are met with organizations with an entirely ulterior agenda. At what point does it constitute deceptive advertising?
