France Attempts to Criminalize the Pro-Life Movement

I am not afraid; I was born to do this.

Saint Joan of Arc



The Socialist government in France, deemed likely to be massacred in the coming elections, are doing what Leftists traditionally do when they are running behind:  wave the bloody fetus and bash pro-lifers:




On Thursday, the French National Assembly passed a bill that makes it a crime to post information online that challenges abortion. Pro-life activists who continue to operate online face up to two years in prison and a fine of more than $30,000. The bill is an expansion of a 1993 law that penalized giving out “false information” or physically blocking those seeking abortion from entering clinics. The bill passed by French lawmakers will punish web operators who post material considered “deliberately misleading, intimidating and/or exerting psychological or moral pressure.”

The French legislation follows a controversy that erupted after the French government blocked an advertisement featuring smiling children with Down syndrome because it could dredge up feelings of guilt from woman who decided to abort babies diagnosed with the genetic condition in-utero. About 96 percent of all babies diagnosed with the condition are aborted in France. The two-minute ad featured testimony from Down syndrome children and adults, as well as their parents explaining that they were capable of living full and happy lives. In November a French court upheld the ban, saying the video would “‘disturb the conscience of women who, in accordance with the law, have made personal life choices.’”


Go here to read the rest.  I guess if I were in France now I would be gearing up for a legal battle to end all legal battles.  Time for pro-lifers around the globe to help our brothers and sisters in France.  For starters, any pro-lifer in France who wants to translate this blog into French and run it over there has only to ask.

  1. And we are ‘waiting’ for the persecution, chastisement, punishment to begin? We are waiting for fire to fall from the sky? It’s here. I’m reminded of what we know of the beginnings of Nazism – the first, subtle persecutions of Jews, then many others. The silence was deafening, until it was too late for everyone.

  2. The modern French govt was conceived in hatred and founded on tyranny. How have the French people survived in such moral squalor for so long? It is a crime to appeal to the conscience of your countrymen? Such a nation cannot endure.

  3. Another indication, in case we needed one, that the mentality of the governing class in western Europe and Canada is about the same as that of the higher education apparat in this country. Because the judiciary (and much of the legal profession) shares this mentality, constitutional guarantees are naught there, and, if the same sorts have their way, will be here as well (through bogus use of variants of consumer protection law and the usual projection about ‘hate speech’). Another prediction: when that happens, the following social segments will prove themselves to be supercilious fair-weather friends: the bulk of the clergy, the Republican establishment, soi-disant libertarians, and the Catholic left.

  4. The modern French govt was conceived in hatred and founded on tyranny.

    Get a grip. The current Constitution of France was written in 1958 by Charles de Gaulle (a devoted Catholic) and his assistants. The country had a vigorous Christian Democratic movement as recently as the 1940s.

  5. From the country that invented state terrorism. Sad that Britain did not wipe them out millennia ago. Although, thinning the French herd might be a blessing for the rest of the world.
