Ashton Kutcher Testifies as Thousands of Sex Trafficking Busts Occur
The actor Ashton Kutcher recently testified before Congress. Many are unaware that the press-dubbed ‘pretty’ boy who once dated actress Demi Moore, and that now has two children with actress Mila Kunis is also an active voice against human sex trafficking.
Kutcher is the co-founder of Thorn, an organization that has developed software to reduce human sex trafficking violation investigations for law enforcement from three years to three weeks. In his emotional testimony before members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he thanked the leaders in the fight to expose the magnitude of the problem, and talked about the importance of stopping the inbound and outbound pipelines which lead to sex abuse of women and children.
Kutcher tearfully said,
“I’ve seen things that no person should ever see. I’ve seen video content of a child that is the same age as mine being raped by an American man that was a sex tourist in Cambodia. This child was so conditioned by her environment that she thought she was engaging in play.”
Kutcher noted that the marginalization of refugees, and society’s refusal to provide the most basic human need of love for people in numerous countries was leading to the epidemic of human trafficking.
“I’ve been on the other end of a phone call from my team asking for my help because we had received a call from the Department of Homeland Security, telling us that a 7-year-old girl was being sexually abused and that content was being spread on the Dark Web … They’d watched her for three years and they could not find the perpetrator, [and were] asking us for help. We were the last line of defense. An actor and his foundation were the last line of defense.”
It seems that line of defense if growing though. Arrests for child sex trafficking, pedophilia, and human slave trade have ramped up considerably in the past several months.
In Tennessee, 42 people were arrested for sex trafficking. More than 8,779 additional contacts were also made by a sting conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
474 arrests were just made in Los Angeles in a state-wide human trafficking operation that was exposed, and dozens of sexually exploited children were rescued.
While the shocking discovery that Hillary and Bill Clinton provided assistance to convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby, resulting in a reduced sentence for child trafficking has been swept aside by mainstream media, and pizzagate revelations were said to be the work of “conspiracy theorists,” five individuals were arrested in Bucks County, Pennsylvania as part of what authorities described as a fetish-themed child predator sex ring.
