If you haven’t heard, Donald Trump stepped in it.
In an interview with Chris Matthews, Trump, according to his critics, has called for the unthinkable: punish women who seek an abortion.
I’ll just let that sink in for a minute.
Of course, those on the left who are pro-abortion were livid and those on the right who are, supposedly, pro-life were stammering trying to distance themselves from Trump’s perfectly logical statement. Of course, he seems to have backtracked to say that only those who provide should be punished.
But, for those of us who are pro-life, though I prefer the stronger anti-abortion, are we truly being consistent with our belief that abortion is truly the murder of an innocent child by not calling for the punishment of both the provider and the one seeking to unjustly end that life? The answer is, sadly, “No.” Both are guilty and both should be punished. Trump’s statements were not outrageous or unthinkable, they were being logically consistent with the position of making abortion on demand illegal.
Thank you, Donald, for showing some intellectual integrity, even though you had to be pushed to admit the logical conclusion.
