Actor Kirk Cameron talked to Fox News after attending the annual March for Life event in Washington, D.C., on Friday, noting that the country is “at a tipping point” regarding the issue of abortion.
Cameron, who played Mike Seaver on the award-winning comedy series “Growing Pains,” discussed his views regarding pro-life issues and how he believes some Americans are beginning to change their minds about the issue around the country.
“I think that we’re at a tipping point,” he told “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy. “I think that the tide is turning, science is making it more and more difficult for us to pretend like it’s not a baby in the womb. We know that it is.
“Even in Hollywood, there are more and more people who are embracing the idea that life is a gift from God,” he added, going on to discuss his upcoming movie based on a true story.
“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. 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,” he said.
The actor went on to talk about his own family and his personal pro-life views, noting that his wife of decades is an adopted child herself, saying she was “one doctor appointment away from not existing.”
She was not a mistake, she was a miracle, and our first four children are adopted. 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,” he said.
“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,” said Cameron.
Fox News added:
Campos-Duffy shared her own experience of having a daughter with Down syndrome and talked about the joy it has brought to her life. Researchers estimate as many as two out of every three unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome in the United States each year are aborted.
Earlier this month, Cameron sat down for an interview with PragerU to discuss the moment he became a Christian while still early in his career.
By the time he was just 17 years old, Cameron explained he was already living a life that most only dream of: Riding around in expensive sports cars with fellow 80’s stars like Michael J. Fox and getting far more attention than a young teen could want, at a very impressionable age. However, he said he began to worry all of the fame would not be enough to sustain him through eternity.
He then recalled the very moment that he began to turn towards Christ: It was after dropping off a female actress at an acting class.
“I knew that if there was a heaven, I wouldn’t be going there,” he said, noting he was living a life of arrogance and not one of submissiveness and service to the Almighty.
“God, if you’re there, would you please show me?” he said at the time.
“Would you forgive me for the wrong things I’ve done and make me the person that You want me to be?” he continued.
Now 51, Cameron says he is living his life with his faith as the centerpiece of it all, with a family and a wife who is a fellow Christian whom he met on the set of the 80’s sitcom.
“I found a girl,” Cameron said. “She’s beautiful on the inside; she’s beautiful on the outside. I married her and we’ve been married for 30 years.”
