Standard operating procedure for the left is to tangle up a Republican candidate on the issue of abortion. Most people don’t think deeply about this issue, because they’re too busy with other things, or they Want to be too busy. Taking a stand on abortion causes cognitive dissonance for those who support it, and a social cost for those who actively oppose it. It’s easier to be a “moderate” and try not to think about it at all. Trump is the latest guy to get tangled in the web, by none other than “Chrissie” Matthews. Trump had recently declared himself to be more pro-life, rather than the “moderate” that he used to be. Obviously he hasn’t spent a long time thinking about what abortion is, and what causes it. Now he’s having to walk back a statement about whether or not there should be some kind of punishment for women who abort.
One interesting thing is that a woman does get punished if she self aborts or purposely does something that causes harm to her unborn baby. No one seems to be fighting against those laws and policies.
The main problem with trying to invent a means to “punish” the woman who gets an abortion is that most of these abortions involve coercion from outside. This can also apply to the “self abortions”.
Trump lost it with Matthews due to his general ignorance of the coercion that accompanies most abortions.
The RNC is currently planning to support Hillary over Trump or Cruz, if either of those two is able to get enough delegate support in the primary. This will assure our downhill slide into government controlled everything.
Expect only an increase in abortion coercion as the government joins in. This is part and parcel of government run health care. Once the health care workers are required to participate, forcing abortions on women is not far behind.
