David Freddoso, author of the fabulous book The Case Against Barack Obama, reports on Obama's new science czar, and it isn't pretty.  

John Holdren has entertained some very unorthdox -- and unsavory -- proposals, including compulsory sterilization and even abortion, all in the service of "population control."

President Obama's claim that he places science above ideology is specious, as I've noted in the context of climate change.  Disputing the idea that science can ever be divorced from ethics, Freddoso cogently notes:
 
"The real debate, however, has never been about whether ethics are needed in science, but rather over whose ethics should determine where science will or will not go."

Precisely.
