Are Dems no longer proud to be backed by radical abortionists? This one in Pennsylvania sure isn’t. The Free Beacon reports:
Pennsylvania congressional candidate Susan Wild touted her support on Twitter from a group that has previously advocated population control before ultimately deleting her tweet and calling the matter “a distraction.”
Wild said she was “honored” to receive the endorsement of the Population Connection Action Fund, formerly Zero Population Growth (ZPG), which in the past condemned “irresponsible breeding” and called for excessively taxing large families. In the 1960s, the group said its goals were providing government funds for abortion and implementing heavy taxes on families with more than two children.
“No responsible family should have more than two children,” ZPG said in a brochure from the time. “Irresponsible people who have more than two children should be taxed to the hilt for the privilege of irresponsible breeding.”
The group’s co-founder Paul Ehrlich advocated abortion as a means of population control. Abortion is a “a highly effective weapon in the armory of population control,” he wrote in his book The Population Bomb.
