French Culture Takes a Nosedive

Something I just posted at DaTechGuy blog:

In France, a video promoting the value and worth of the lives of people with Down Syndrome has been declared inappropriate because it might cause psychic pain to a woman who has chosen to terminate a pregnancy due to fetal anomaly of one kind or another.

In France, the score is right-not-to-be-offended 1, right-to-life 0.

Read the whole post over at DaTechGuy – and at the same link, watch the wonderful two-minute video that French broadcasters and the State Council can’t quite tolerate.

    1. In all seriousness, the one thing I’m most grateful about with this story is that it brought the video to my attention. It’s a great one to view and share.
