1) “la vérité sur l’histoire à l’école” ou les mensonges du Figaro Rédacteurs : Laurence De Cock, Eric Fournier, Guillaume Mazeau 1979 : depuis quelques années, une réforme des programmes d’histoire peine à s’instituer. A l’école primaire, les activités d’éveil ont remplacé les cours disciplinaires et, dans le collège unique à peine naissant, le ministre René Haby tente de faire admettre un enseignement de sciences sociales qui mêle histoire, géographie et économie. L’association des professeurs d’histoire-géographie s’alarme dès 1976 de cette dissolution disciplinaire. C’est le rôle d’une association corporatiste d’exercer une vigilance sur les changements d’une discipline. En octobre de la même année, Alain Decaux, féru d’histoire, fait une conférence à Vichy. Il suffit parfois d’un mélange de narcissisme, de machisme et d’un bon réseau relationnel pour faire éclater une véritable controverse. Le cadre des lamentations est désormais posé. Le Figaro magazine publie donc un dossier au titre tonitruant : « Qui veut casser l’histoire de France ?

Un pas de plus dans l’eugénisme : à propos du DPN dans le projet de loi de bioéthique Le diagnostic prénatal (DPN) tend à détecter in utero les affections dont pourrait souffrir l’embryon. Il se distingue du diagnostic pré implantatoire (DPI) qui recherche les affections dont pourrait être atteint l’embryon in vitro. Ces deux pratiques contenaient dès l’origine un germe d’eugénisme qui n’a pas manqué de se développer et à l’encontre duquel le projet de loi relatif à la bioéthique n’ose pas aller. En effet, pourquoi rechercher les maladies affectant un enfant non encore né ? Pour le soigner ? - Rééquilibrer l’information délivrée aux femmes sur la trisomie 21 ; - Desserrer la contrainte du dépistage généralisé ; - Organiser un débat national sur la question de l’eugénisme ; Cet appel est plus nécessaire que jamais lorsque l’on prend la mesure de la réforme engagée. Actuellement, l’article L. 2131-1 du Code de la santé publique dans sa rédaction dispose que « Art. La nouvelle rédaction de ce texte appellerait de nombreuses observations critiques.
