Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over Americans citizens. These are the ideas put forth by Barack Hussein Obama’s Science Czar, John Holdren, in a book he co-authored in 1977 titled Ecoscience.
In the book, Holdren called for extremely radical ideas in the name of controlling global warming, reducing healthcare costs and a myriad of other “collective good” causes. Some of those ideas are:
- Forcing women to abort their pregnancies whether they wanted to or not
- Forced sterilization of the population-at-large using infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s water and food supplies
- Seizing the babies of single mothers and teen mothers against their will to be given away to other couples to raise
- Requiring, by law, that people who “contribute to social deterioration” exercise reproductive responsibility in the form of forced abortions and sterilization
- A call for a transnational “Planetary Regime”—in other words, the United Nations—to assume control of the global economy and dictate the most intimate details of American lives; using an armed international police force
So, are you curious about why I’m bringing up this bit of ancient information? After all, these extreme ideas aren’t anything that could actually happen, are they?
Actually, they are. And thanks to a pilot program launched in Colorado, it could already be here.
In the Colorado program, teenage girls were given contraceptives, including implanted abortifacients known as long-acting reversible contraceptives, or LARCs, and intra-uterine devices, also called IUDs. The program showed reductions in teenage births and reported abortions, so an effort was made to enact a taxpayer-funded version of the program, but it died in the Colorado Legislature over conscience and religious liberty concerns.
A few weeks ago, a prominent healthcare expert predicted that Democrats would use the Colorado program to begin a nationwide push for taxpayer-funded contraception for schoolgirls, including abortion-inducing drugs. Based on recent happenings in Virginia—a state with a history of eugenics and forced sterilization—it looks like the effort has begun.
Writing in the Washington Post, Virginia Lt. Governor Ralph Northam hailed Colorado pilot program as a proven way to bring teenage pregnancies way down.
“Over the past six years, Colorado observed a 40 percent decline in teen births and a 42 percent decline in teen abortions based on an innovative program that provided education, counseling, administrative support and long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) to providers and patients upon request.
This is an issue Virginia needs to consider for the health of women of all ages, the health of our infants and the fiscal well-being of our commonwealth.”
Northam also made a focused pitch for taxpayers to pick up the tab since IUDs and LARCs are far more expensive than oral contraceptives.
In Virginia, as it is with most of the country, parents wouldn’t have to be consulted if their teenage daughter wants to participate in the program. In fact, according to the Guttmacher Institute, 46 of 50 states allow access to contraception services to girls as young as 12-years-old without parental notification in some or all cases.
So if Virginia is successful in making this a taxpayer-funded program, teen girls could have a surgical procedure that essentially sterilizes them; and the parents would never know. Even if they found out, they could do nothing about it.
Much like the policy proposals held by John Holdren, Nazi Germany had forced sterilization policies in order to control the general population for a variety of reasons, which begs the question… how is this idea in Colorado and Virginia any different?
By the way, if you still think this can’t happen, check out the piece I wrote just last month about the Seattle school district that is already providing LARCs and IUDs to girls as young as 11-years-old — at taxpayer expense and without parental notification.
