New â€œScience Czarâ€ May Forecast Future with â€œObamacareâ€

Washington, DC â€“ As the debate over President Obamaâ€™s socialized healthcare plan heats up, the depth of his radicalism is becoming more evident. John Holdren, Obamaâ€™s recent choice for â€œScience Czar,â€ provides the latest and perhaps most troubling example of extremism. In the name of population control, Holdren has advocated both forced abortion and compulsory sterilization through government-administered tainting of the water supply.
In a 1977 book he co-authored, called â€œEcoscience: Population, Resources, Environment,â€ Holdren called for a â€œPlanetary Regimeâ€ to enforce mandatory abortions for population control and limit the use of natural resources. Holdren wrote: â€œThere exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated. It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.â€
Holdren writes that â€œa comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources, renewable or nonrenewable. The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countriesâ€™ shares within their regional limits.â€ He states that â€œsterilizing women after their second or third childâ€ may be more practicable than sterilizing men and proposes a â€œlong-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skinâ€ at puberty and then â€œmight be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.â€
He queried: â€œWhy should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children?â€ He wrote â€œthat compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution. [N]either the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution mentions a right to reproduce.â€
Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action, commented: â€œJohn Holdren is like a bad character from a George Orwell novel. The fact that Obama would unilaterally appoint him to a position of such power and influence says more about our President than it does his â€˜Science Czar.â€™ Birds of a feather flock together. President Obamaâ€™s hyper-extremism continues to astound, and the mainstream media cannot continue to cover it up much longer. As Obama pushes his massive scheme for socialized medicine, the American people are slowly beginning to grasp the radical nature of the minds and philosophies behind it. One more question the President needs to answer: â€˜Is there a co-pay with forced abortion?â€™â€
