Ashton Kutcher chokes up as he gives a speech on child trafficking

Ashton Kutcher, child trafficking, Thorn

It’s always great to see well-known individuals use their renown to bring attention to important issues. In this case, it was, Ashton Kutcher who gave a testimony before Congress today, and for all of the work that he has done to fight human trafficking. As much as many of the people would hate to admit it, modern slavery does exist in the United States. 

In the speech the actor spoke about his organization Thorn that drives tech innovation to help fight the sexual exploitation of children around the world, describing some of his own experiences witnessing the horrors that this industry inflicts on children barely older than his own two kids. 

The actor also choked up two-times when he described the whole case. 

Thank you, Ashton!! This word needs more people like him who give a damn and do something about it. There are so many people worried about immigration and walls when human trafficking and sex slavery is happening right in our cities, our neighborhoods.

People should now understand it’s not a third-world problem, it’s not worrying about ISIS attacking when the odds of country’s daughters and grandchildren are being snatched up and sold into slavery are much higher. And the critical women who complained and mocked the women's march claiming they "have rights" well, this is ur wake up call that so many little girls and young women are stripped of these rights, right here in the country. On the other hand, Ashton blew a kiss to Senator John McCain at the start of the hearing, made a remark on Ashton’s appearance, telling the him that he looked better “in the movies.” Kutcher responded was just commendable!

Watch the whole speech below as he goes back to the main point what he wanted to say originally: Happiness can be given to no man, it must be earned. It must be earned through generosity, and through purpose. But the right to pursue it is every man's right. And I beg of you that if you give people the right to pursue it, what you may find in return is happiness for yourself.
