Ashton Kutcher Shares Powerful Pro-Life Video
Video of Special Olympian Frank Stephens’ 2017 testimony in front of Congress is going viral again after actor Ashton Kutcher posted it to his Facebook page last week with the message “Everyone’s life is valuable.”
In Oct. 2017, Stephens headed to Capitol Hill to plead his case against elective abortion for babies with Down syndrome, and movingly declared, “I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living.”
Stephens argued to allocate federal funding for research that would help people with Down syndrome.
“Sadly, across the world, a notion is being sold that maybe we don’t need research concerning Down syndrome,” Stephens testified, in part. “Some people say prenatal screens will identify Down syndrome in the womb and those pregnancies will just be terminated. It’s hard for me to sit here and say those words. I completely understand that the people pushing this particular ‘final solution’ are saying that people like me should not exist. That final view is deeply prejudice by an outdated idea of life with Down syndrome. Seriously, I have a great life!”
Kutcher’s post had been viewed over 5.4 million times since it was posted last Friday.
