Kirk Cameron Defends Todd Akin Amid Candidate’s Rape Remark Controversy


By Daniel Gates



Kirk Cameron defended embattled Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin during a CNN appearance on Tuesday.


Akin caused an uproar when he told an interviewer that in cases of “legitimate rape,” women’s bodies can sometimes shut down an unwanted pregnancy.

His controversial comments have sparked outrage on both sides of the political divide.

The socially conservative Cameron, however, who was himself at the center of a firestorm when he called homosexuality “destructive” last March, argued on CNN’s “Starting Point” that Akin “misspoke” and that he should be evaluated on more than just his rape remark.
