Last August, CBS reported that Iceland "is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion." Some were puzzled and concerned with their choice of words. Others, like myself, were outright baffled and angry. CBS' tweet made it sound like eradicating a disease and eradicating people with a disease are the same thing.
In comes Patricia Heaton, our new favorite pro-life celebrity.
On August 14th, she responded to CBS with a tweet that perfectly encapsulated how nuts their choice of words was.
Four months later she is still defying the norms of Hollywood by speaking out against abortion and the disproportionate rate at which babies with Down Syndrome fall victim to it.
