"More for the fit, less for the unfit"

A few posts down I caused a stir by quoting Justice Ginsburg on her thoughts regarding population control. In that light, I thought you might enjoy the following quotes from John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Ad visors on Science and Technology. Also known as the United States' Science Czar.

In 1977 Holdren co-authored a book called "Ecoscience." In it he describes extreme measures that he felt might be needed to control the population.

Page 837: Compulsory abortions would be legal

"Indeed, 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."

Page 798:
Single mothers should have their babies taken away by the government; or they could be forced to have abortions:

"One way to carry out this disapproval 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. If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it. Adoption proceedings probably should remain more difficult for single people than for married couples, in recognition of the relative difficulty of raising children alone. It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society."

Page 787-8:
Mass sterilization of humans through drugs in the water supply is OK as long as doesn't harm livestock:

"Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple food is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such a sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets or livestock."

Page 786-7:
The government could control women's reproduction by either sterilizing them or implanting mandatory long-term birth control:

"Involuntary Fertility Control.....A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men."

The development of a long term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births."

Page 838:
The kind of people who cause "social deterioration" can be compelled to not have children

"If some individuals contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility-just as they can be required to exercise responsibility in their resource consumption patters- providing the are not denied equal protection."

And this is our new"Science Czar" under Obama. Unsettling to say the least. Remember the quote from Ginsburg? That there was a "concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of." These quotes from our new Science Czar re-emphasizes that point. To find a way to keep people from producing children that "contribute to general social deterioration." Who decides who that is? Why, they do! Of course.

This is how these elite liberals think.

They keep telling us who they are. Why aren't we listening?
