Mifepristone: Hey, Trump, Women Are Already Being Punished For Abortion

Mifepristone: Hey, Trump, Women Are 

Already Being Punished for Abortion

The presidential candidate didn’t specify what kind of ‘punishment’ women would face for having abortions.

The mistake Donald Trump made when he said that “there has to be some form of punishment” for women who have abortions was saying out loud something that is already happening.

For proof, look no further than the rush to disassociate him from the anti-abortion movement.

As soon as Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and mainstream anti-abortion groups caught wind of Trump’s draconian suggestion—which he made to Chris Matthews on Wednesday during a pre-taped MSNBC town hall event—they descended on the Republican frontrunner with a flurry of condemnatory statements.

“Of course women shouldn’t be punished,” Kasich told Chuck Todd but the candidate shied away from explaining how he would enforce his own opposition to abortion outside of cases of rape, incest, and life endangerment.

“I think you have to be very careful in how you do it,” the governor said. “We’re a long way from there.”

“Of course we shouldn’t be talking about punishing women,” added Cruz, who only supports legal abortion in cases of life endangerment, in a late afternoon statement. “We should affirm their dignity and the incredible gift they have to bring life into the world.”

By that time, Trump had already walked back his earlier remarks to fall in line with the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List, which had stressed earlier in the day that “punishment is solely for the abortionist who profits off of the destruction of one life and the grave wounding of another.”

“[T]he doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman,” wrote Trump in a follow-up statement. “The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb.”

This is not the first time Trump’s position on abortion has changed. The candidate once called himself “very pro-choice” but announced in 2011 that he was “pro-life,” attributing his conversation to a conversation with a friend whose wife had considered abortion but decided against it.

But even though Trump retracted his earlier comments to Matthews, a ban on abortion—even with his preferred exceptions for rape, incest, and life endangerment—would still punish women with or without legal consequences.
