Chris Matthews gets Donald Trump to say that he believes women should be jailed for having an abortion.

Courtesy of Raw Story:  

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Wednesday that women who had abortions should face “some form of punishment” if Republicans were successful in banning the practice. 

During a town hall event that set to air on MSNBC Wednesday night, host Chris Matthews insisted that Trump could not dodge the question of how to enforce an abortion ban. 

“Look, people in certain parts of the Republican Party, conservative Republicans, would say, ‘Yes, it should,’” Trump replied. “I would say it’s a very serious problem and it’s a problem we have to decide on. Are you going to send them to jail?” 

“There has to be some form of punishment,” he said. 

“For the woman?” Matthews pressed. 

“Yeah,” Trump replied, adding that the punishment would “have to be determined.”

You know I think that Matthews gets a lot of well deserved criticism, but damn sometimes he is exactly the right kind of interviewer to the truth out of these politicians. 

Here was how Hillary responded.

So I guess under a Trump presidency things like women's rights, and settled Supreme Court cases simply would not matter.

Good to know.

      In all fairness, I think what Sarah Palin had was a "spontaneous abortion," what we in the non-medical world refer to as a miscarriage. I suspect she freaked out at the medical terminology.

    4. Oh, I think Andersen Cooper nailed it when he said Drumpf was basically a five year old having a tantrum. And he didn't allow Mr. Excuse Me to interrupt him and take over the narrative. Andersen kept talking over The Dullard and said that every parent of a five year old recognizes the excuses Drumpf is making.

      Yeah, poor ol' Dullard must have gone home and called on his lawyers to start the "their being mean to me" law suits.

      Sarah would have done Dullard a favor to gift him with a refrigerator and show him how to throw tuna cans. She could charge it to SarahPac as a political donation and Dullard could put it on his income tax as medically required stress relief.

    If abortions become illegal in the USA, women without the time or money to go Canada for an abortion will either have the baby or get an illegal abortion.

    Making abortions illegal in the USA just exports those abortions to Canada (and elsewhere) that provide safe, private abortions. Except for poor women, of course. It's poor women that are least equipped to cope with an unwanted pregnancy.

    Not even the GOP fanatics are going to commit to the draconian measures that would be necessary to stop abortions. Even they don't want to require women to pee on a stick before boarding a plane headed out of the country. Keeping every pregnant woman inside the USA to prevent an abortion attempt isn't (yet) in the dreams of Trump's ilk.

      Indiana's Governor, Mike Pence (Tea Party) and the Republican super majority passed a law last week that makes it a crime to have an abortion for reasons of gender choice or genetic choice. Your fetus has an extra chromosome? Sorry, lady, you don't get to abort. You're going to take personal responsibility and you're gonna have that child and the rest of your life and the rest of your family's life will be burdened with the care of that genetically challenged child. Don't think it can happen? It's happening! I didn't think the law was going to pass. I thought it was dead and then I find out it was passed and signed. It stinks how they did that while no one was paying attention! They're dirty and disgusting.

    Rachel Maddow played tape of Trump's position to ban abortion and punish women who have one. Good for Rachel to speaking to Sanders and Clinton in a quick follow up. Sanders comment about Trump saying so etching stupid I took as Bernie meaning Trump says outrageous stupid things to dominate the news so everyone talks about him instead of focusing on issues. Personally I have no doubt that Trump seeks to dominate saying outrageous things then lie as if he did not say them. He is a master of games to play people.

  15. Anonymous5:24 PM

    Seems to me that if one believes the termination of a pregnancy is the killing of an unborn person, then pursuing the doctor and woman for criminal behavior is logically consistent. I also think it's only logically consistent to not make exceptions.

    I think this highlights the absurdity of criminalizing abortions, not the absurdity of what Trump said (except to the extent that he doesn't understand what he is saying).

    I suppose if there are laws limiting abortion, it is better to not also pursue the mother and doctor criminally. But in a way, it also makes abortion more palatable (to some). There's a reason they didn't just pursue those who abort pregnancies with murder. They knew at a gut level that it wasn't the same thing - no matter what their rhetoric was. I wonder what would happen to abortion statutes of the argument that it's the killing of a person were actually taken to it's logical and literal conclusion. OF course, if I'm wrong, and people can tolerate it, then we'd it would, as Hilary said, being more horrible than you imagine.

    PLEASE NOTE: I am not anti-abortion. I'm just playing professor for a philosophy course on being internally and logically consistent.

      @5:46 So perhaps they should pass a law that prevents pregnant women from traveling? or stop American citizens from traveling to get abortions? I agree. That would be logically consistent.

      @5:50 - I'm not clear your point. I think pointing out the absurd fallacy of their argument is good for those who want choice.

      @6:19 - I wouldn't be surprised.

      @5:50 - I don't see this as an academic hypothetical. This isn't asking how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. This is about laws that are on the books, and the inconsistency of the anti-abortion groups who are afraid of articulating the consequences of their position and beliefs. I imagine it is less about pregnancies, and more about controlling women's sexuality. But then, I'm not one of them, so I don't know.

      Seeking consistency in a narrow focus makes it easy to be hypothetical. The reality is there is a glaring inconsistency in imposing abortion penalties on women too poor to enjoy the freedom of safe, private, LEGAL abortions by traveling to other countries. There's a nice target for academic contemplation. It might actually take some deep thought, instead of piddling with the trivial problem of pretending USA law controls women's choices.

      I agree that if something is illegal, those who violate the law should be punished. I think this was a very bright move by Trump to show how wrong it would be to make abortions illegal.

      Maybe the solution for Trump is to go after the father of the "unborn" child. Many abortions (not talking here about results of rape, incest, young adolescent girls, or physical danger to either mother or baby) take place because the mother has very few options and there is no man present to shoulder his share of the responsibility. They've fallen back on the fake argument: "she tricked me, so I don't have to be a father to the child."

    15. But there is something illogical in ONLY blaming the woman for the pregnancy. It takes TWO. And in no discussion I have heard from the anti-choice crowd have I heard one peep about blaming the perpetrator, I.E. sperm donor, holding him accountable or responsible nor anything about punishment.

      LisaG at 8:02 pm. Trump had to backtrack immediately that's when he came up with the "woman as victim" stuff. As usual, he again put his foot into his mouth. Like many, many men, Trump does not think that a woman can made an informed decision for herself under any circumstances. He's also trying desperately to try to sound like he really cares about women.

      To men in the GOP, you should just all calm down and give up. Rowe v. Wade became the law of the land in the 1970's. It took some power away from you men and gave it to women. Accept it. We are capable of making fundamental decisions about our lives and we have the legal right to do so. This struggle has always been about power and control, not at all about "religion."

    5. Yes, Beaglemom -- and it's not only power over abortion. Religion is based on power over every aspect of a person's life. It is, essentially, slavery -- of mind and body. Why is there a single person, woman or man, who would want to be a slave?
      Growing up is the very word for it, as you say. To be an apostle is to be still a child who wants his daddy to take care of him. Make all his decisions, absolve him of responsibility, tell him what to think, what to do. (And if he doesn't obey, kill him as an infidel. Slave system in a nutshell.)

    I have known very religious women who would never have an abortion. I have known very religious women who have aborted due to genetic issues, financial issues,family issues, and personal issues they will not discuss. I have also known women who are strictly pro-life because they felt forced into bearing children in uncomfortable situations - family and peer pressure. They went through embarrassment and other unpleasant circumstances due to bearing children when they were ill-prepared to do so. They married people they would have otherwise not married. Then they became staunch pro-lifers. I believe it is because they want other women to share the humiliation they endured. These are the women who will also support the anti-abortion platform. Unless, perhaps, it happens to their daughters who are also pregnant in less than ideal circumstances.

      A middle-aged (like me) neighbor of mine very casually admitted to me that she habitually parks in places designated for parents with strollers- because hey when we were young mothers we didn't have special parking places.

      In those days people didn't drive huge SUVs for no good reason either.

      Older women often remark on maternity leave (which we also didn't have) without the realization that young mothers these days fully expect that they're going to have to leave their babies with someone else and go back to work.

      I had no maternity leave and I had to get a new job (because of course I had to quit my job, being pregnant and all) and go back to work when my only child was six weeks old- and I still grieve for that lost time. Why the hell would I wish that on every other woman?

      Some women need a good swift kick up the arse.

      My mother often told me how much she wanted to abort me. In the 1950s she had no choices about getting pregnant or having to birth me.

      She was a pro-choice advocate.

    This interview is a perfect example of why little donnie only does phone interviews. I believe his whole campaign is to sell his stuff-wine, steaks, books and himself because he is an egomaniac.

    In a phone interview, he can have “advisors” telling him what to say behind the “curtain” because he has no policies or thoughts on any issue. In a face-to-face interview he is on his own and his back pedaling on the abortion issue is a great example of how donnie can’t think on his feet. They had to immediately run out and do damage control.

    Chris should have slammed him, when donnie asked if he was Catholic. Chris should have told him I am not running for president, therefore my views are not important, but you are, so answer the question.

    This is 2016; no wonder the rest of the world dismisses the USA. They are still discussing and fighting over an issue that was settled by the LAW/courts long ago, but gotta keep the power over those pesky women.

    This topic is undebatable. Why? Because It has been decided!!. This procedure is a healthcare decision between doctor and patient. There are many reasons this female procedure is performed. In the male rump fantasy world, is the female morning after pill outlawed? Is the male birth control pill outlawed? Will child support be tripled? Is the common female D and C procedure outlawed? Donald trump should worry and perfect the rectal, penis and finger enhancement procedures. At his age he will be experiencing all of them. And be an expert to his own healthcare decisions. Now Go away mr trump, America does not need your deals. Women do not like you. Thank you for applying. Application and resume denied and YOU ARE FIRED.

    I am so grateful to Donald for exposing the practical side of the pro-lifers efforts to make abortion illegal. Too bad Chris didn't follow up with how the rape and incest exceptions would work -I.e., does there have to be a prosecution and trial of the rapist before an abortion is approved?

    The next POTUS could appoint two or three justices. Despite the conservative talking heads trying to backtrack and say the issue is settled, the fact is Roe could be overturned.

    All of the GOP candidates have said they want to make abortion illegal. Donald just did everyone a favor by exposing the logical conclusion.

    Trump never said "jail" women who have abortions.
    Trump never said he would nuke Europe, in fact he said NO.
    Trump's oratory is sad enough without lying about what he said.

    Another Sarah Palin moment via the tRump... last I knew abortion was still legal under Rove v Wade.

    yeah I get that STATES are passing laws limiting access to abortions.

    Trump is an empty shill, flip flops on issues, has no substance or intelligence to bring to the Oval Office. If there is a woman who would vote for this hippocrite, I hope she burns in hell.

    He was on howard stern years ago, said he was so proud Melania could count her birth control pill, and he was asked about Marla, she went to him and said "i'm pregnant" and he says "Well, what are you going to do about it?" Tiffany was three months old after the quickie divorce and shotgun marriage to Donald the Conservative's Conservative's anti choice champion.
    The man has no responsibility whatsoever.
