Morgan said that Cameron was simply “being honest to what he believed,” while expressing surprise that it’s turned into such a big issue. When asked if he thought Cameron’s ideas were out-of-date, Morgan did not endorse what Cameron said, but credited him for sticking to his guns.

“I think that he was pretty brave in what he said… I mean, it’s a, what many would argue, an antiquated view.”

Morgan also gave Cameron credit for being consistent enough to say if he had a daughter that got raped, he would still insist she bring the baby to term instead of getting an abortion. As he was getting in a car, Morgan said he can fully understand why GLAAD is angry over Cameron’s remarks.
