I got so mad at Trump for saying that if abortions became illegal again women who had them anyway would need to be punished that I had horrible nightmares. He has a talent for distilling an issue down to the basics and he really did that this time. ie...  Women are demonized for not wanting to bring a baby into the world.  We are blamed for being sexual and not knowing how to keep from getting pregnant.  Women are stupid and men have no part in placing a baby in the womb that isn't wanted.  Sex will lead a person to hell.

                  I want to live in a world where women's sexuality is revered and there is information and care available from an early age so that babies can be born wanted and cared for.  Jezebelle indeed!  I am tired of men thinking they have to control women and making this abortion issue about shame. Trump's ex wives are coming out with information about how controlling Trump was with them.  Makes me want to cut him down.  His kind needs to go.

                  Trump has really crossed a line this time that is going to cost him some votes... he is trying to backpedal and say abortionists should be punished but not women and yet what is said is how he really feels.  He is not alone as this ban on abortions is from the right and there are very few clean safe clinics for abortions in most southern states.  I don't want to live in this stupid country. I'm sick of the self righteousness and oppression.

Any woman thinking Trump is the answer obviously doesn't know what the question is.  I hear a lot, the sentiment that "What I like about Trump is that he says what he thinks."  Really?  That's a selling point?  Well, people with tourette's syndrome say what they think and really one of them, any one of them would make better decisions as president.

Trump is absolutely maddening. 
The up side of all his pronouncements and off-the-cuff remarks is that he continues to alienate more people all the time.
I think he may be sinking his own ship at this point.

I was just reading the comments on some of the articles about Trump's pronouncement.  Most of the Trumpeters still love him..... some say he just made an error and others say he is right... abortion is murder and the women should be criminals.   It really does put the whole abortion issue right out in the open,

Of course many blame the liberal media for trapping him with their questions but right wingers need to know what it means when you say abortion is illegal.  Trump is just trying to say what he thinks the right wants to hear so he can get elected.  They created him.  He used to be pro choice.... sigh.   He is such a typical narcissist.

Even the Right to Life folks came down on him for that.

I actually laughed and clapped when I read what Trump had said.

If there was a single thing he could have done to alienate even MORE female supporters, that would be it.  He just took a giant step towards making himself an "also ran".

The abortion issue will never be settled; how could it be? As long as there are people who believe it is wrong, they will work very hard to make sure that no one can get one. 
All steps forward have been crumbling since the beginning. I fear for our society, and for women. 
And you're right- Trump is a typical narcissist, compounded by ignorance, prejudice, and misogyny.

This is what happens when a major candidate has a tiny bit of knowledge abt many issues and in-depth knowledge abt none, and is, of course, a mbr of the Misogynist Hall of Fame.

Thing is, all the talking heads and right-wingers are pointing out that the custom is to punish the doctor, not the woman, and somehow Trump's not realizing that is a big gaffe.  Which makes no logical sense (as if logic were involved!).  Doctors don't go cruising for abortion customers - women seek them out.  And if abortion is murder, then the women as well as the doctors are guilty.  This seems like a lot of weaseling around to say no-no-poor-woman, yes-yes-evil doctor.

Note - I am just complaining about lack of logic (and empathy) in this whole subject.  I personally think abortion should be available, safe and legal (as, haha, it is here in Canada, and 'free' to boot), and I had one.

Great comments and I appreciate this crowd.  I am enjoying seeing the tap dancers..... err. Uhhh, well, illegal means punishment.    Like sadists caught in the act.   Maybe Trump in his bluntness has unearthed the meanness of the antiabortion movement. 

I thought it was all resolved with Roe vs Wade...I was so wrong.  I had an abortion in the sixties in Japan.  Safe.  it was a nightmare to be pregnant and have no where to turn in this obnoxious country.  Maybe the US deserves Trump.  He might get in office and then reverse all his righty ways... ha, that would be great. Ha!
