DONALD J. TRUMP gave his primary opponents a gift when he said this week that if abortion is outlawed, “there has to be some form of punishment” for the woman. He let them look as if they cared about women.
Within hours, Mr. Trump retracted his “punishment” statement, saying that only the doctor or person who performed the abortion would be held legally responsible. That is the standard anti-abortion line, but face it, punishing the woman is logical.If abortion is murder, as abortion opponents are always claiming it is, how can society let the woman off the hook?
