“He clearly is a pro-life advocate, and for that, I respect him,” said the former “Growing Pains” star, speaking on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “He said that he misspoke and that he misphrased something and that 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,” he said. “So he’s in a tough spot.”
But this wasn’t just “two words.” It’s the fact that Akin still — even now — doesn’t want women to be allowed to have an abortion even in cases of rape (any rape). And the Republican Party is right behind him in their platform.
