Video: Kirk Cameron Defends Rep. Todd Akin

| by Michael Allen

Christian actor Kirk Cameron appeared on CNN, on Tuesday, to defend Rep. Todd Akin (R-Missouri), who recently claimed that women do not pregnant through “legitimate rape," reports RawStory.com.

Cameron said: “You know, I would encourage people to sit down and watch the video. You know, he clearly is a pro-life advocate, and for that, I respect him.”

“He said that he misspoke and that he mis-phrased something, and he apologized. I’m the kind of person that believes that I would like to be evaluated by my entire career and my entire life, not two words that I would misspeak and then later apologize for. So, he’s in a tough spot.”

Rep. Akin has been called on to quit the race and has until 5 p.m. on Tuesday to bow out.
