'I Want to Change People's Hearts': Man With Down Syndrome Goes Viral for Pro-Life Testimony
A man with Down syndrome whose 2017 testimony before Congress went viral is speaking out again amid the ongoing debate over states loosening abortion laws.
In Oct. 2017, Frank Stephens headed to Capitol Hill with Global Down Syndrome Foundation 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.”
The video went viral again last week after actor Ashton Kutcher posted it on Facebook.
Stephens joined Ainsley Earhardt on "Fox & Friends" Friday morning to explain why he spoke out against abortion before Congress and why he continues to advocate for the right to life.
"I don't want to make it illegal. I want to make it unthinkable," Stephens said. "Politicians change laws. I want to change people's hearts. ... I want to change people's minds and hearts together."
He said that his life is "fantastic" and worth living, and he wants to share that message of hope with others.
"I got to travel all over the world, I get to workshop a play in New York, I'm going to be in two documentaries, which will be on next month, and I have a lovely girlfriend, friends and a wonderful family."
