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
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 on 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.
This issue is more prescient than ever because Holdren and his colleagues are now at the forefront of efforts to combat “climate change” through
similarly insane programs focused around geoengineering the planet. As we reported in April, Holdren recently advocated “Large-scale geoengineering
projects designed to cool the Earth,” such as “shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays,” which many
have pointed out is already occurring via chemtrails.
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
- 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.

“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.”
As noted in the FrontPage article cited above, Holdren “hides behind the passive voice” in this passage, by saying “it has been concluded.”
Really? By whom? By the authors of the book, that’s whom. What Holdren’s really saying here is, “I have determined that there’s nothing
unconstitutional about laws which would force women to abort their babies.” And as we will see later, although Holdren bemoans the fact that most
people think there’s no need for such laws, he and his co-authors believe that the population crisis is so severe that the time has indeed come for
“compulsory population-control laws.” In fact, they spend the entire book arguing that “the population crisis” has already become
“sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”
Page 786: 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.”
This is some creepy stuff, it's all starting to happen.
What are we to do?
