Redemption Accomplished and Applied
Redemption Accomplished and Applied

Time ran an article about abortion, with a unique twist: France has ruled that handicapped children are entitled to compensation if their mothers were not were not offered the opportunity to abort them, effectively making it official policy that handicapped children should not be born.
Under the menace of this decision, French doctors, whenever the slightest shadow turns up on the sonogram, will advise: Abort. Perfect children are mandated by law. Parents will be considered irresponsible if they bring forth a specimen less than perfect. Think of the charming effect this decision would have if it were applied in those many countries around the world where a fetus that turns up with a vagina rather than a penis is considered to be defective.
In some places around the world being French is considered a handicap.
