The famous actor Ashton Kutcher is becoming a pro-life community icon since the moment he decided to share a video about Down syndrome on his Facebook page.
The five-minute video shared to his 17 million followers shows Frank Stephens, a man with Down syndrome, delivering testimony to a congressional committee in 2017. Although the hearing focused on Down syndrome research, Stephens in his testimony criticized prenatal tests that lead to unborn babies with Down syndrome being killed in the womb.
Kutcher wrote above the video: “Everyone’s life is valuable.”
In a few days the video had 8.5 million views and more than 200,000 shares. Still, the video sparked a discussion about abortion and Down syndrome in the comments.
These are some of the comments left below the video:
“At the end of the day, you cannot take someone’s choice from them,” one person wrote.
“There are many reasons women have abortions and they deserve the right to continue to do so.”
But others said Stephens’ message should be heard.
Let’s pray. Then let’s change the law.— ashton kutcher (@aplusk) 3 de octubre de 2017
