Kirk Cameron is not one for subtlety. So as the fires of Todd Akin's "legitimate rape"flared, Cameron decided to step up and defend the disgraced Missouri GOP Senate candidate.
Cameron said he believes Akin is "a good man" despite the backlash he has received for comments he made over the weekend about how pregnancies resulting from rape are "really rare." Akin claimed that if it is "legitimate rape" then "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
"I'm not his political strategist, thank God," Cameron said on "The Today Show" Tuesday. He said that he watched the video and views Akin as "a man who is advocating the sanctity of life through and through. He said he misspoke, and he apologized for it. I like to evaluate people based on their entire life, their entire career, all they stand for."
Adding, "I believe he's a good man. He's now in a very, very difficult spot."
