Holdren: Seize babies born to unwed women
WorldNetDaily ^ | SEPTEMBER 29, 2009 | Jerome Corsi

Posted on 09/29/2009 5:37:10 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Obama science czar John Holdren stated in a college textbook that "illegitimate children" born to unwed mothers could be taken by the government and put up for adoption if the mother refused to have an abortion.

Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, argued that "illegitimate childbearing could be strongly discouraged" as a socioeconomic measure imposed to control population growth.

As previously reported, WND has obtained a copy of the 1970s college textbook "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment" that Ehrlich co-authored with Malthusian population alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich and Ehrlich's wife, Anne. 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."

On page 786, the authors wrote that one way to discourage illegitimate childbearing "might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption – especially those born to minors who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone."

This is the humane way of dealing with illegitimacy? Or, must we all be taught a lesson? These people are really frightening. And, we thought that Sharia Law was bad. This is just as bad.

If they do that, how will they justify their vote-buying from welfare moms?

We could also raise them for the good of the state, in special breeding farms. Young girls might even be encouraged to have babies out of wedlock for the good of the dear leader. We’ll call it Liebensborden.

It’s really amazing how the Left has always embraced fascism. Am reading (and highly recommend) Jonah Goldberg’s book “Liberal Fascism”, which traces the roots of the Left’s love affair with fascism. Every day I see more evidence of it - always the idea that the State is our savior - truly creepy and frightening.

The welfare moms would be only too glad to have their little “indiscretions” taken off their hands, especially after the big bonus they’d get. That would make them vote Democrat. As for the children themselves, why they’d all be raised to vote DOP, naturally.

Holdren. Himmler. Both surnames start with an “H”. I wonder if anyone has done a DNA analysis. I’m sure that Holdren laments that he was born about 50 years too late.

And you and I would be paying for the welfare mom’s buyout as well as all costs related to running the agency/shelter that would care for the children until/if they’re adopted.

Every new idea and plan coming from the left means another tax increase.

I feel like that single woman too. My husband doesn't even want to hear about the things I tell him, even though he's supportive and sympathetic. He just gets so upset that he stops listening to the news and rarely listens to the Conservative commentators. Fortunately, I have friends that listen and for some reason, even some of my Liberal friends, are beginning to realize the truth.

After watching my husband spend all his free time listening and watching sports, I told him that what happened with sports figures wasn't going to affect his very life, but politicians were. After that, he seemed to be a bit more understanding.

That's good. I understand just how you feel and it can get depressing.

Many just don't want to know all that's going on, maybe they don't believe it or else they just don't care.

Sometime going to CHAT and talking about dogs or something is a relief, lol.

Good question. These babies could be adopted. There is a big market out there.

Can you even imagine this happening to a mother as she is feeding her infant the first week of his/her life?

Aching heart here!

“That is truly soulless. Evil, evil, evil....”

Remember something...
You are dealing with people who:
-ADVOCATE gay child rape (Kevin Jennings-School Safety Czar),
-Setting up Illegal Alien Child Brothels (ACORN),
-SELLING HUMAN BODY PARTS (New Jersey Dems),
-Forcibly taking babies from unwed mothers (Holdren),
-That Bush blew up the Trade Center on 9/11 (Jones),
-Who advocate using Taxpayer Money for Pro-Obama propoganda(Yosi Sergent).
-Who tell the world at the U.N., “I hate America, TOO!” (Obama)

Etc.,etc.,adn., and that is just THIS WEEK!!!!
These people have NO MORAL COMPASS, whatsoever. This is how NATIONS DIE.....

Agreed. Even more, how about we stop condoning and even encouraging pre-marital sex and teach kids to respect themselves and their bodies' God-given miracle of reproduction?

Exactly. I find it ironic that conservative parents encourage their unmarried daughters to keep babies when that baby could go to a loving couple who would raise the baby in a complete home.

Adoption not Abortion.
Chastity is a gift from Our Lord.

Sit in judgement of our wrongs
They decide and the shotgun sings a song...

I understand your frustrations, I think we all do. But remember people like Hannah Giles, "just one women", who has singlehandedly left her mark on government (and ACORN).
