This Powerful Testimony Will Bring Tears To Your Eyes

Many powerful politicians and government bureaucrats are often called to testify on Capitol Hill.

Holding their carefully crafted statements, many of them full of half-truths or downright lies, they read from an emotionless script.

But when Frank Stephens, a man unknown until recently gave his testimony on Capitol Hill, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

Speaking boldly on the sanctity of life, Frank Stephens, a man who has Down syndrome, spoke the truth on why all lives matter.

Hearing directly from the source, he delivered a powerful speech that settled the debate on the value of life once and for all.

The Blaze reported:

“Stephens, a Quincy Jones Advocate at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, told the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Committee on Appropriations on Wednesday that “I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living.”

“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.”

Stephens pointed to a recent report that said nearly 100 percent of unborn babies with Down syndrome are aborted in Iceland, and cited high termination rates in Denmark and South Korea as well.

“It is hard for me to sit here and say those words,” Stephens said. “I completely understand that the people pushing this particular ‘final solution’ are saying that people like me should not exist.”

Stephens said such a view is “deeply prejudiced” and indicative of “an outdated idea of life with Down syndrome.”

“I don’t feel I should have to justify my existence,” he added, but told those who “question the value of people with Down syndrome” said that “we are an unusually powerful source of happiness.”

“Surely happiness is worth something,” he said.”

Wow. Nailed it.

To justify eliminating a life, just because the baby would be born with a physical or intellectual disability is evil to the core.

Hitler tried the same strategy with his quest for the “pure breed”, and slaughtered millions of innocent lives.

And as Mommy Underground recently reported, Iceland was disgustingly bragging they weren’t following too far behind his footsteps.

But America should be different. We must be different.

As Frank Stephens put it, we are not Iceland, and should never strive to be.

Valuing the sanctity and dignity of human life is in the DNA of every human. Because some choose to disregard or turn a blind eye, does not make it right.

Frank Stephens took a bold stand, realizing some may have mocked him. He put himself in the limelight because the message he was speaking was more important than his own personal comfort.

Men like Frank Stephens are the heroes.

You can watch his powerful testimony here, but warning, you might choke up at the genuine passion and truth in his words.

His testimony silenced Congress and convicted the hearts of many.
