PARIS, December 2, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) --The socialist government of France passed a bill after one day's debate that criminalizes websites that might dissuade women from abortion.
The digital interference bill is aimed at cracking down on French websites that would, in the words of the bill, "deliberately mislead, intimidate and/or exert psychological or moral pressure to discourage recourse to abortion."
Convicted website owners could face two years in prison and fines up to 30,000 euros ($31,799 USD).
The majority left voted in a block for the bill while the minority right formed a block against it.
Bruno Retailleau, who heads the Republicans party group in the Senate, told French radio Thursday that the bill "is totally against freedom of expression, adding that it contradicts the 1975 law that legalized abortion and which called for women to be informed of alternatives.
Christian Democratic Party member Jean-Frederic Poisson also blasted the bill on Twitter for what he saw as the government's double standard in banning sites that propose alternatives to abortion but not jihadist websites.

It’s evil to stop murder. It’s a right! /s
Crazy and foolish. Next it will be against French Law to declare oneself a ‘Happy Person’.
“Please stop! How do you think that makes an unhappy person feel, proclaiming that your ‘Happy’, just like that?”
France is one of the few nations I despise.
How nazi of them.
Guess the French don’t have freedom of speech, nor freedom of the press.
The cancer is Socialism.
The cure is LePen.
What about the Shiny People?
"I want the shiny people over here, and the happy people over here, okay? I represent angry gun-toting meat-eating f___ing people, all right?"
I was really hoping that the popularity of Le Pen would help restore France’s Catholic heritage. I was clearly too optimistic
The march to the rule of the Anti-christ seems to be back on track.
Coming the America. Where non-Progressive Liberal sites are considered “fake.”
Plenty of Web hosts outside France. Are they going to try to block them?
If I am not mistaken, these are the same guys who banned a video -—— having nothing to do with abortion, by the way —— which merely showed Downs Syndrome children smiling. Why? Because the sight of a lovely, smiling Downs child might trigger feelings of remorse in women who “made another choice”.
I wish I were engaged in satire here, but I am not.
It does not take a genius to detect behind all this, a true, non-metaphorical fiend who hates humanity.
Free speech and rational thought is the greatest threat to the Left. Once in power they do all they can to restrict speech and regulate thought.
The devaluation of life epitomized by the abortion culture is part of the devaluation of life evidenced in the shootings and murders in so many abortion-defending areas of our country. In the 1950’s Catholics prayed for the conversion of Russia. Now we need to pray for the conversion of Europe.
This is the type of governmental action that produces the exact opposite of what was intended.
That being said, the left’s comfort with censorship is breathtaking.
France just went full Nazi. You never go full Nazi.
