Actor and activist Kirk Cameron delivered a rousing speech at the March for Life and later told Fox News that he thinks the “tide is turning” for how people think of abortion — even in let-wing Hollywood.
“Most of us have someone in our life — sometimes it’s a wife, sometimes it’s our children — who are touched by this issue of abortion and life,” Cameron told Fox, adding that even his wife, who was adopted as a child, might have been ended by an abortion.
“She was not a mistake, she was a miracle, and our first four children are adopted,” Cameron said. “They were ‘this close’ to not existing. And our two natural-born children would not be here if my wife had not been born, and her birth mother not chosen life.”
“So for me, my whole family is here because of the work of the people like who are coming to the Mall today for the March for Life,” Cameron exclaimed.
He added that minds are changing. “Even in Hollywood, there are more and more people who are embracing the idea that life is a gift from God,” he said.
“If you talk to the people who are here, some people don’t understand why we come and why we’re marching, but we understand as the family of faith, that our hope is ultimately not in who governs us, it’s not in the laws that we make as a nation,” Cameron said. “Our hope is in the power of God working in the hearts of people, and there are thousands and thousands of us here today, we want to make a difference, we want to champion life.”
Cameron also gave a great speech at the rally.
