Not Another Episcopal Church Blog: Banned in France?

The war for the unborn knows no boundaries, but one country is trying to erect a wall to prevent its citizens from learning about the evils and dangers of abortion.

Alexandra  Desanctis on December 7, 2016 posted the following story at "National Review" in which she reports a bill recently passed by the French Senate,
"...criminalizing the posting of pro-life information online, a measure that was passed by the French National Assembly just last week. Violators face a maximum of two years in prison and over $30,000 in fines. The measure makes it a crime for pro-life individuals or activists to obstruct a woman’s lawful decision to have an abortion, or to cause her guilt after the fact. Its text criminalizes: the act of preventing or trying to prevent to practice or learn about an abortion or prior acts . . . by any means, including by disseminating or transmitting electronically or online, allegations, statements looking to intentionally mislead, as a deterrent, the characteristics or the medical consequences of a voluntary interruption pregnancy."

"Or to cause her guilt after the fact" could be interpreted to mean that any web site that posts something as honest as, "Abortion ends a human life" could face penalties and jail time.

Oops, I think I just got banned.

Mon Dieu!
