John Holdren is the Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology - or Science Czar.
He is the top adviser to Obama on science and technology, issues that are increasingly relevant to other issues such as homeland security, energy and environmentalis.
Question 1: Were you aware that in the book Ecoscience, co-authored in 1977 by John Holdren and his close colleagues Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich, Holdron wrote that:
a) Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not.
b) The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food.
c) Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise.
d) 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.
e) 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.
Question 2: Should the person advising the President on science issues believe that the Constitution does give us the right to have children, or that the government can decide how many children we are allowed to have, and force women to undergo abortions for population control (as is now done in China)?
[quotes from Ecosciene]
"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."
"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."
Question 3: Do you want someone advising the President that we are not human beings upon birth, that we must develop into a human and that it is okay to kill children up to 2 years of age, because they aren't really human before that point? His reasoning is that until the baby can realize that there’s a tomorrow, the baby is not really human.
In John Holdren's book, Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions, he says, "The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being."
Question 4: Would you want someone to force you to abort your baby, regardless of your beliefs, or to kill your toddler because they do not believe your child is a human being, yet?
Question 5: Will you allow someone who holds such radical views of live and humanity to continue to advise the President of the United States?
