Obama’s New Science Czar’s Controversial Prescriptions

Obama’s New Science Czar’s Controversial Prescriptions July 12, 2009

Zombietime has the excerpts from new “science czar” John Holdren’s 1977 book, in which he advocates the following:

• 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.

UPDATE: Politifact disputes the claim that these remarks are taken accurately from their contexts.
