Forced abortions and mass sterilization needed
July 10, 2009
Book he authored in 1977 advocates for extreme totalitarian measures to control the population
Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens.
tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person
now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?
These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by 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
Advisors on Science and Technology — informally known as the United
States’ Science Czar. I In a book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:
• Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;
• The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs
intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food;
• Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from
them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;
• 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.
• 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.
Impossible, you say? That must be an exaggeration or a hoax. No one in their right mind would say such things.
I hate to break the news to you, but it is no hoax, no exaggeration.
John Holdren really did say those things, and this report contains the
proof. Below you will find photographs, scans, and transcriptions of
pages in the book Ecoscience,
co-authored in 1977 by John Holdren and his close colleagues Paul
Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich. The scans and photos are provided to supply
conclusive evidence that the words attributed to Holdren are unaltered
and accurately transcribed.
Make sure to read the new statements issued by the White House and by
John Holdren’s office in response to the controversy raised by this
essay — you can see them below following the Ecoscience excerpts, or you

This report was originally inspired by this article
in FrontPage magazine, which covers some of the same information given
here. But that article, although it contained many shocking quotes from
John Holdren, failed to make much of an impact on public opinion. Why
not? Because, as I discovered when discussing the article with various
friends, there was no proof that the quotes were accurate — so most
folks (even those opposed to Obama’s policies) doubted their veracity,
because the statements seemed too inflammatory to be true. In the modern
era, it seems, journalists have lost all credibility, and so are
presumed to be lying or exaggerating unless solid evidence is offered to
back up the claims. Well, this report contains that evidence.
Of course, Holdren wrote these things in the framework of a book he
co-authored about what he imagined at the time (late 1970s) was an
apocalyptic crisis facing mankind: overpopulation. He felt extreme
measures would be required to combat an extreme problem. Whether or not
you think this provides him a valid “excuse” for having descended into a
totalitarian fantasy is up to you: personally, I don’t think it’s a
valid excuse at all, since the crisis he was in a panic over was mostly
in his imagination. Totalitarian regimes and unhinged people almost
always have what seems internally like a reasonable justification for
actions which to the outside world seem incomprehensible.
Direct quotes from John Holdren’s Ecoscience
you will find a series of ten short passages from Ecoscience. On the
left in each case is a scanned image taken directly from the pages of
the book itself; on the right is an exact transcription of each passage,
with noteworthy sections highlighted. Below each quote is a short
analysis by me
these short quotes, I take a “step back” and provide the full extended
passages from which each of the shorter quotes were excerpted, to
provide the full context
at the bottom of this report, I provide untouched scans (and photos) of
the full pages from which all of these passages were taken, to quash
any doubts anyone might have that these are absolutely real, and to
forestall any claims that the quotes were taken “out of context.”
