In 2014, the Danish government reported 98% of unborn babies who tested positive for Down's syndrome were aborted.
In the neighboring country of Iceland, the eradication of Down syndrome babies has reached near 100%.
In France 97% of diagnosed DS babies are aborted. So many that the country banned a television commercial featuring Down syndrome children because it upset the mothers who previously aborted them.
While countries like Iceland are praised for their state-funded health care, the struggle to keep costs down creates an environment in which those who choose to give birth to a Down syndrome child are considered selfish for using up precious resources. The Dutch Ministry of Health published a list of the 10 most expensive diseases, with Down syndrome at the top.
But as pro-life actress Patricia Heaton clearly points out, “The country is not, in fact, eliminating Down syndrome. They are just killing everyone who has it.”
