Skip to comments.Holdren: Sterilize Welfare Recipients
Posted on 09/26/2009 11:11:58 AM PDT by kellynla
Obama science czar John Holdren stated in a college textbook that compulsory, government-mandated "green abortions" would be a constitutionally acceptable way to control population growth and prevent ecological disasters, including global warming, because a fetus was most likely not a "person" under the terms of the 14th Amendment.
Holdren further suggested government-mandated population control measures might be inflicted in the United States against welfare recipients, writing on page 840: "There has been considerable talk in some quarters at times of forcibly suppressing reproduction among welfare recipients (perhaps by requiring the use of contraceptives or even by involuntary sterilizations). This may sadly foreshadow what our society might do if the human predicament gets out of hand." (Parenthesis in original text.)
As previously reported, WND has obtained a copy of the 1970s college textbook "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment" that Holdren co-authored with Malthusian population alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich and Ehrlich's wife, Ann. The authors argued involuntary birth-control measures, including forced sterilization, may be necessary and morally acceptable under extreme conditions, such as widespread famine brought about by "climate change."

Writing on page 839 of the textbook, the authors state: "The common law and drafters of the U.S. Constitution did not consider a fetus a human being. Feticide was not murder in common law because the fetus was not considered to be a human being, and for purposes of the Constitution a fetus is probably not a 'person' within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. Thus under the constitution, abortion is apparently not unlawful, although infanticide obviously is."

Hey, sterilizing welfare recipients would be getting rid of the democrats voting majority in years to come. They won’t do that.
Does the ppresident go out of his way to pick the fruitiest of nut cases for his czars?
Isn’t it a suggestion to reduce the number of Mr. 0bama constituents?
That is, if it ever sees the light of day.
Holdren has written a lot of books. I’m not sure what the point is to quote from books where he talks about treating fetuses badly. Look for the books where he talks about how children are not human beings.
This biologist doesn’t think that.
Well that’ll lock down the Hispanic vote, fer shur...(/s)
I posted it on my Facebook page...I have over 900 friends on there so the more eyes that glance this story the better. I recommend ya’ll do the same.
I think various Supreme Court decisions have made this pretty clear.
They tell me that Republicans are racists and hate poor people, but I dunno ... seems like the Left has got that locked up.
“They tell me that Republicans are racists and hate poor people, but I dunno ... seems like the Left has got that locked up.”
That’s true. Elitism is not typical to the Right. The Left despises poor/uneducated people and wants to rule them. This mental disease goes all the way to Plato and the concept of the “rule of the philosophers”.
On the contrary. They are Obama! They represent his philosophy and his views on how his world should be run.
I’ve been saying this for years.
You want to be on welfare long term? Submit to sterilization.
24 months is long enough. After that? Snip...snip.
Amen - hard to believe I would ever agree with a policy of the O’Bonzo administration, but there it is.
Yes well, in San Diego in the late 60’s early 70’s I listened to a speeches by Nader, Fonda and some guy (must have been Holdren) advocating a law that Americans be limited to 2 children only. Unlike China apparently Americans will get to have 2.
