Most Radical Anti-Life Administration Ever
The man President Obama has appointed as his chief science advisor has some rather interesting views about when life begins (via Patterico). In a 1973 book John Holdren co-authored with noted pro-abortion anti-humanity freak Paul Ehrlich, we find this gem:
“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,” John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, wrote in Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.
The specific passage expressing the authors’ view that a baby “will ultimately develop into a human being” is on page 235 in chapter 8 of the book, which is titled “Population Limitation.”
At the time the book was written, the Supreme Court had not yet issued its Roe v. Wade decision, and the passage in question was part of a subsection of the “Population Limitation” chapter that argued for legalized abortion.”
This is the guy advising President Obama on your health care (hint: they insist on including abortion), global warming (not), and other key issues that matter to our lives. This is what the President thinks normal, mainstream science looks and sounds like. I would say God help us, but as noted before in this space, we are suffering a judgment we brought down on our own heads. Perhaps God forgive us would be a more apt expression. And maybe someday, with some proper intellectual guidance, Mr. Obama will develop into a leader who can steer our country aright...but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one if I were you.
