Kirk Cameron Encouraged Crowds at 2022 March for Life: ‘We Love God, Therefore We Love Life’

By Movieguide® Staff

Actor Kirk Cameron recently gave a speech at the 2022 March for Life in Washington D.C., where he shared his connection to the issue of abortion.

“I am from warm and sunny California, but it’s also the land of loose nuts and bolts,” Cameron said to begin his speech on Jan 21 in front of the Washington Monument. “I’d much rather be here in Washington DC with you for the March of Life. I love to see your signs and your smiles and your hearts filled with love and compassion for moms and babies and families.”

Cameron made it clear that God and the Bible offered hope to everyone and encouraged the audience to stand for the truth.

“Why are we here?” he asked. “The Bible, the book that built America, says that those who hate God love death, but we’re the family of faith. We love God therefore we love life. Our hope is not in the White House. It’s not in congress. Our hope is not in the people who govern us or the laws that we make in this nation, our hope is in the power of God working in the hearts of His people.”

The 51-year-old actor first met his wife, Chelsea, on the set of GROWING PAINS as a young man in Hollywood. Cameron recognized the blessing of his conversion, marriage to Chelsea, and their six children.

“This issue of life is very personal for me,” Cameron explained. “My wife is an adopted child. Chelsea was one doctor appointment away from not existing. Our first four children are also adopted. They were this close to not being here, and if my wife Chelsea had not been born our two natural born children would not exist either. So my six children and my wife are here as a result of loving, compassionate, and courageous people like you who are marching today at the March for Life.”

Cameron also encouraged those at the March for Life to rest in the authority of God and His word, not in the authority of other humans.

“We’re going to be marching together this afternoon but after this day is over I want us all to remember to continue the marching orders that have been given to us by our commander-in-chief who lives in the heavenly places,” he said. “His executive orders trump all other executive orders. The mandates from heaven remind us to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God. That’s what we will be doing this afternoon and I’m proud to be with you, God bless you guys.”

After Cameron’s conversion to the Christian faith, his efforts in the entertainment industry shifted to uplifting, faith-filled movies like FIREPROOF. During his speech, he hinted at an upcoming project called LIFEMARK.

“I hope that you have a chance later this year to see the movie LIFEMARK, that is based on a true story,” Cameron shared. “It is a story that is so much better than anything we ever could have scripted, but the makers of FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and WAR ROOM and I have teamed up to bring this film that highlights the value and preciousness of life in the womb and the beauty of adoption. explaining how one life can impact so many.”
