A French advertisement that is called “Dear Future Mom”shows expectant parents that people with Down syndrome live a happy and fulfilling life. It is a beautiful representation of the value of all lives. We have all read about the black lives matter movement and the white lives matter movement but this clearly is an ad that promotes the value of the lives of children who have Down Syndrome. The message is that their lives matter but the French censors disagree. They have called the video inappropriate and have banned it.
Judge for yourself
The State Council in France just affirmed a ruling that bans the video on the grounds that it is “inappropriate.” They argue that allowing people with Down syndrome to smile is “likely to disturb the conscience of women who had lawfully made different personal life choices.”
Essentially, France is telling people with Down syndrome that they do not have a right to show their happiness in the public sphere. This decision is discriminatory, and it violates the rights of individuals with Down syndrome.
96% of preborn babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome in France are aborted. This ad seeks to show families that boys and girls with Down syndrome are beautiful and they deserve the right to life.
…P.S. When you sign this petition, your note will be sent directly to President François Hollande and to French ambassadors in countries around the world. If we make enough noise, France will be forced to reconsider this unbelievable decision.
