Under the radical Barack Obama, many in the administration were equally radical. None of them was more so than John Holdren, who with the Ehrlichs of Stanford University, wrote a book on population control in which they advocated for forced abortions and sterilization of poor black women. If that weren’t bad enough, they also claim that babies don’t become human until they become socially aware. They peg that at age two. So, you could legally abort a 20-month-old child. This is the path down which the Democrats want to take America. They have already decided that a baby that is born alive can be allowed to die.
President Obama’s top science advisor and I have something in common: We both have a long-term association with Paul Ehrlich, my former colleague at Stanford University. There any similarity ends, however. Holdren, who has co-authored hooks on population control with Ehrlich and his wife, is the Stanford professors ideological clone. For my part, I have long opposed the prescriptions of the infamous population bombster, and now find myself compelled to reject the almost identical views of the lesser-known but now more powerful Holdren as well.
But their big push was for population control. The publication of the book predated the Roe v. Wade decision, and the authors strongly argued for legalizing abortion as a population control measure. They suggest that abortion cannot really be considered the taking of a human life, on the grounds that neither the fetus, nor the newborn, nor the toddler, is truly human anyway: “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,”1 write the authors. Move over, Peter Singer.
Holdren apparently agrees with the Princeton University “ethicist” that infants up to the age of two or so are not really human beings, and so can be eliminated without qualms.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
