Obama appoints advisor who wanted forced abortions and sterilizations

In a stunning appointment, Barack Obama has appointed John Holdren, a man who in 1977 co-authored a book that advocated forced abortions and forced sterilizations as a way to control so-called 'overpopulation'

Then again, it's one thing to be a bumbling soothsayer but quite another to underestimate the resourcefulness of mankind enough to ponder how "population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution," as Holdren did in "Ecoscience" in 1977.

Holden, of course, taught locally at Harvard.
