You may have heard about Planned Parenthood turning down Tucker Max’s 500k charitable donation on the grounds his misogynistic past marred the gift.
Let’s beg him not to do this. Instead of giving money to the dog-killing animal rightsists, how about a donation to pro-test and put a thumb in the eye of the anti-research pet killers? Send him a message, donate the money to a pro-science group.
Here’s my email to Tucker:
Hey, I hear you’re looking to give a charitable donation and now PETA is saying they’d be happy to receive it. As a pet owner, doctor and biological researcher I’d beg you not to do this. PETA, and it’s sleazily named Humane Society of the United States (not to be confused with your local, unaffiliated Humane Society), euthanize far more animals than any other animal rescue organization, place almost no animals in homes, and have been caught dumping euthanized dogs in dumpsters. Further, their anti-science agenda has been well established. They’re against any use of animals in research, even though that would mean essentially a halt in progress in the biological sciences.
Instead would you consider giving to the ASPCA?
They are the real animal welfare organization that is responsible for the local shelters performing the majority of pet adoption.
If you really want to stick it to the self-serving PETA activists, give to the pro-research group PRO-TEST which stands up for biological research.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
