Ashton Kutcher has broken ranks with his radical liberal Hollywood pals by posting a pro-life video that could land him on the blacklist.
Kutcher rose to acting prominence through his work on programs like “That ‘70s Show,” comedic films such as “Dude, Where’s My Car” and he recently earned a role alongside Sam Elliot on the Netflix series for conservatives “The Ranch.” The A-list actor has been a staunch and outspoken liberal which makes his recent pushback against abortion rights professionally dangerous.
Kutcher has taken aim at President Trump on numerous occasions and demonstrated disdain for his policies including the handling of Dreamers, refugees, and illegal immigration.
“My wife came to this country on a refugee visa in the middle of the Cold War!” Kutcher reportedly tweeted. “My blood is boiling right now!”
Although Kutcher has been part of the “resist” movement of the extreme left, to some degree, recent laws passed that allow for third-trimester abortions have shifted the party to such an extreme that even long-time supporters are uncomfortable. Liberal celebrities are now faced with falling into line with people like Virginia Gov. Ralph Northup who reportedly say a baby could be killed after birth.
“So, in this particular example if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable,” Northup reportedly said of post-delivery murder. “The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
So extreme is this “mother’s right to choose” that Republicans and even moderate Democrats are rallying against the abortion-on-demand mandates coming out of the Democratic National Committee.
“This is morally repugnant,” Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse reportedly said. “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.”
The shift to infanticide is apparently where the rubber meets the road for liberals such as Kutcher and others. The star recently took a strong position that threatens his career by posting the video of Down Syndrome man and Special Olympian Frank Stephens testifying before Congress that infanticide laws such as those pushed in Virginia and New York would effectively threaten to eradicate people like him. Kutcher posted the video that has garnered more than 6 million views under the title, “Everyone’s Life is Valuable.”
By contrast, DNC Chair Tom Perez reportedly said that “If you are a pro-life Democrat . . . you know you are standing alone.” Kutcher may find himself standing on an island with other blacklisted Hollywood actors.
But the prospect may not strike the level of fear that it would in other liberal insiders. His bone to pick with President Trump about immigration stems from his wife’s plight, and he has emerged as a significant voice in the war on human trafficking. Both Congress and the Trump Administration have been pushing hard to crack down on this immoral industry. The actor was provided an opportunity to use his popularity to highlight private efforts such as his co-founded organization Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children that helps track criminal trafficking.
“As part of my anti-trafficking work, I’ve met victims in Russia, I’ve met victims in India, I’ve met victims that have been trafficked from Mexico, victims from New York and New Jersey and all across our country. I’ve been on FBI raids where I’ve seen things that no person should ever see,” Kutcher reportedly said.
What Hollywood elites may have viewed as activism on behalf of liberals was actually a person with a moral compass who has drawn lines in the sand between right and wrong. Third-trimester and post-birth infanticide are ways that Democrats are using to wipe away valuable Americans with Down Syndrome and other conditions they deem inconvenient. Although Kutcher should be praised for his strength of character, pushing that heart-wrenching plea for life on social media will inevitably cost him millions.
“I completely understand that the people pushing this particular ‘final solution’ are saying that people like me should not exist. That view is deeply prejudiced by an outdated idea of life with Down Syndrome,” Stephens reportedly said before Congress. “Sadly, across the world, a notion is being sold that maybe we don’t need research concerning Down syndrome. Some people say prenatal screens will identify Down Syndrome in the womb and those pregnancies will just be terminated.”
“Let’s pursue answers, not ‘final solutions.’ Let’s be America. Let’s make our goal to be Alzheimer’s free, not Down Syndrome free,” Stephens quipped.
