In the News (from Prison Planet): “President Obama’s top science and technology advisor John P. Holdren co-authored a 1977 book in which he advocated the formation of a ‘planetary regime’ that would use a ‘global police force’ to enforce totalitarian measures of population control, including forced abortions, mass sterilization programs conducted via the food and water supply, as well as mandatory bodily implants that would prevent couples from having children.
“The concepts outlined in Holdren’s 1977 book Ecoscience, which he co-authored with close colleagues Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich, were so shocking that a February 2009 Front Page Magazine story 0n the subject was largely dismissed as being outlandish because people couldn’t bring themselves to believe that it could be true.
“It was only when another Internet blog obtained the book and posted screenshots that the awful truth about what Holdren had actually committed to paper actually began to sink in.
“Ecoscience discusses a number of ways in which the global population could be reduced to combat what the authors see as mankind’s greatest threat – overpopulation. In each case, the proposals are couched in sober academic rhetoric, but the horrifying foundation of what Holdren and his co-authors are advocating is clear. These proposals include:
“- Forcibly and unknowingly sterilizing the entire population by adding infertility drugs to the nation’s water and food supply.
“- Legalizing ‘compulsory abortions,’ ie forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is common place in Communist China where women who have already had one child and refuse to abort the second are kidnapped off the street by the authorities before a procedure is carried out to forcibly abort the baby.
“- Babies who are born out of wedlock or to teenage mothers to be forcibly taken away from their mother by the government and put up for adoption. Another proposed measure would force single mothers to demonstrate to the government that they can care for the child, effectively introducing licensing to have children.
“- Implementing a system of “involuntary birth control,” where both men and women would be mandated to have an infertility device implanted into their body at puberty and only have it removed temporarily if they received permission from the government to have a baby.
“- Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to general social deterioration.’
“- Formally passing a law that criminalizes having more than two children, similar to the one child policy in Communist China.
“- This would all be overseen by a transnational and centralized ‘planetary regime’ that would utilize a ‘global police force’ to enforce the measures outlined above. The ‘planetary regime’ would also have the power to determine population levels for every country in the world.”
