Skip to comments.John Holdren, Obama's Science Czar: Forced abortions and mass sterilization to save the planet

Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens.
The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?
These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- informally known as the United States' Science Czar. In a book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:
Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not; The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food; Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise; People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized. A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.
Remove population control, insert global warming.
It is less about what the nut said and more about how far he is willing go. What happens if there is a real crisis?
Would he advocate rounding us all up and putting us in camps?
This guy spent a great deal of time writing his ideas down and then publishing them in a book that he is still very proud of.
And this guy predicted that the UK wouldn’t exist after 2000.
Frankly, if you read this guys work over the years and his association with Paul Erhlich (who predicted 2 billion dead by 2000 from environmental catastrophes that never happened)they have been consistently wrong on almost everything. They have been huge proponents for sterilizations - and they are proud of it. This is not a hatchet job but some actual reporting that the mainstream media has declined to perform in their loyal obedience to Obama.
Holdren is a whack job who firmly believes these things, and I am not accepting 11th hour repudiations of his former work.
We should try the sterilization and forced abortions on Mr. Holdren, just for the sake of science.
Environazis, envirofascists: I used to think these terms were extreme when I first heard them. Now I know they fit perfectly.
