Conservatives Outraged After CBS Touts Report On Iceland ‘Eliminating Down Syndrome Through Abortion’
Conservatives are fighting back hard after CBS reported on Iceland’s efforts to eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. CBS tweeted their report “inside the country where Down syndrome is disappearing,” explaining that most women in Iceland take prenatal tests-that are only 85 percent accurate-to determine if their child has a high risk of being born with Down syndrome.
Mainstream news channels rarely draw attention to the negative side of abortion, but CBS News did so this week with a report about Iceland’s near 100-percent abortion rate for babies with Down syndrome. “… few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland,” the report begins.
Pro-life actress Patricia Heaton slammed a troubling new report out of Iceland indicating that nearly 100 percent of unborn babies with Down syndrome are aborted. CBS News published a widely-viewed report this week about the country’s “eradicating [of] Down syndrome births.”
