The New Science Czar has no problem with involuntary sterilization

You may disagree with Glenn Beck on some issues, but he has a great research staff. If you don't know about our new science czar, John Holdren, you should take a moment to read about him here. Here is a highlight:
Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed this would pose some very difficult political, legal and social questions to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements. It must be uniformly effective. Despite widely varying doses received by individuals and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals, it also must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects and it must not affect members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock.
Michelle Malkin also wrote about this here, including an image of the material quoted above.

In other words, it's fine to sterilize people, just not animals. By the way, it's notable that a biogenic spermicidal variant of corn is under development. I thought that might be just a conspiracy theory, but it seems to be true.

While we're on the subject of government imposed Eugenics programs, Glenn spent some time on the progressive movement today, too. It's worth a read and it can be found here.
