The European Court of Human Rights has upheld French authorities who ruled in 2014 that a pro-life video about children with Down syndrome video was ‘disturbing’ and should not be broadcast.

The video’s creators, Fondation Jérôme Lejeune, supported by ADF International, appealed through the French courts.

They finally took their case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, but judges ruled the group’s application to be ‘inadmissible’.

Fondation Jérôme Lejeune is the leading organisation in France for research and care for people with Down syndrome.
