Obama’s New Science Czar’s Controversial Prescriptions

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.
