LOL Charles Cooke and Allahpundit, there’s NRO’s Dream Team of cucks.
well this sure sparked a little brouhaha, also flushed out some would be attila-the-huns.
this ain’t the first time donald shot from the hip. betcha it’s not going to be the last time he’s forgiven for it too.
10th amendment isn’t a cop out. it’s the constitutional thang.
HotAir proves that it is, yet again, full of hot air. You don’t just punish the person who delivers the killing blow, you punish all of the accomplices to murder.
Now if you want to argue that Trump made a political miscalculation because this nation is filled with murderous Leftists and philosophically retarded “pro-lifers”, and has a lack of philosophically consistent pro-lifers, then that would be a reasonable premise.
Trump has just blown it wit woman. I knew from the beginning with his months long feud with Megyn kelly then Carly Fiorina then Heidi Cruz then the Breightbart reporter. It’s over he’s a 6th grade bully against woman.
Think it through;
Back alley abortions were considered to be murder, which is why they 'legalized' it in the first place
Many a woman died because of the back ally-ness and many abortionists were imprisoned
If abortion reverts back to being illegal, all the aforementioned penalties are re-applied
Trump is correct and is quasi back pedaling because he is nervous about Wisconsin
If it becomes illegal to kill a baby in the womb via a voluntary abortion, why shouldn’t there be a punishment for the woman? After all the crime could not occur absent her consent!
If abortions are illegal, women who have abortions are breaking the law.
Meth is illegal, people who take meth are breaking the law.
Really simple concept.
Rule #1- Dont answer hypothetical questions.
Rule #2- If someone asks you a hypothetical question, see Rule #1
The plan's working!
I believe Trump when he says he’s pro-life.
Everybody knows Trump hasn’t been a PRO-LIFER. He needs a crash course.
Of course, in a Trumpanzee world this means that Trump is ‘on our side’.
Hate wimin that get abortions ? : Trump says will prosecute them.
Feel that they are victims? : Trump says he will not.
Trump represents both sides
As Trump told Matthews today :"This is supposed to be a Democracy"
This is a “meta article” - it is an article about reactions to articles. It exists to support a narrative. That narrative is “woman hater Trump wants to punish women for abortion”. People are being mislead.
Chris Mathews setup the entire thing,
CM: Should women be punished for having abortion?
CM: This is not something you can dodge. If you say abortion is a crime or abortion is murder then you have to deal with it under the law. Should abortion be punished?
DT: People in certain parts of the Republican Party and conservative Republicans they’d say yes they should be punished
CM: How about you?
DT: I would say that it’s a very serious problem and it’s a problem that we have to decide on. Are you going to say put them in jail? Is that what you’re talking about?
CM: I’m talking about you because you say you want to ban it.
DT: I am pro life, yes.
CM: How do you ban abortion? How do you actually do it?
DT: You go back to a position like they had where people will perhaps go to illegal places. But you have to ban it.
.... continued hectoring
CM: Do you believe in punishment for abortion? Yes or no as a principle.
DT: The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment.
CM: For the woman?
Mathews led Trump. Mathews spawned the “punishment” idea, told Trump “this is not something you can dodge” and he then pestered Trump to answer his question, “Do you believe in punishment for abortion?”
It’s a statement of fact.
If abortion is legally banned, this implies that those who go outside the law to receive abortions will necessarily be punished. That’s how laws work.
Why are people being so stupid about what this statement and apparently not understanding the nature of laws?
Trump continues to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Trump’s remark simply reflects the nature of criminality.
Those clowns not interested legal consequences shouldn’t be demanding abortion be outlawed.
Abortion is legal killing.
I think it was Obama who said the punishment was a baby.
Ubi jus; ibi remedies
That is, where there is a lew, there must be a remedy.
That is, there is no law without a penalty.
That is, a law without a penalty for violation can be no law.
That is, that if Trump was asked if there would be a penalty for breaking abortion law, the obviously correct answer would be yes...or it would not be a law.
2,000 years it has thus been recognized.
Trump has NO way out.
Chris pounces on the ABORTION!!! word, and avoids the ILLEGAL word.
Trump is saying that broken LAWS should be punished.
God knows that enough of our laws are not!
Today; about 3,300 future American citizens will DIE at the hands of a serial killer; your local "Woman's Health Provider".
