The latest anti-Trump flaps ginned up by the liberal media concern abortion and the use of nukes in defensive warfare. So fierce has been the media and political attacks that Trump has been forced to modify/change his stands more than reason requires.

As for abortion, the idea of holding a woman legally responsible for her abortion under certain carefully circumscribed circumstances is not indefensible. A woman in an advanced state of pregnancy who has knowingly dithered around for months delaying a decision on an abortion to the point where a viable, discernible fetus is within her to me is morally reprehensible, and I would have no problem with a law that would hold her legally responsible as well. The crime would be conspiracy to murder, and the doctors and other individuals or organizations participating in or facilitating the ex hypothesi illegal late-term abortion would be liable as co-conspirators.

Giving a woman the right to terminate a pregnancy for any reason in its early stages, say while the woman has the stomach to observe on a sonogram the grotesque procedure is fine with me.  And I do mean any reason—rape, incest, gay fetus, or interference with bridge club dates. The right-to-life extremists, including, without limitation, Catholics are totally wrong here as elsewhere. Life doesn't start at conception, but it surely starts sometime before delivery. We should look to the medical profession, not politicians, to help establish relevant guidelines.

Why Donald Trump agreed to grace any forum moderated by Chris Matthews is a mystery to me. By the way, I earlier noted that Anderson Cooper is not too bright, but compared to Matthews, Coop’s Edward R. Morrow. This brash bully, whose Obama-induced leg tremors have apparently reached his brain, started off by rudely demanding that one of his opaque questions be answered “yes” or “no.” Trump, who doesn’t like to be ordered around, especially by some second-class, low-rated talk show host, made the simple point that in negotiating with terrorists, no particular measure, including the use of nukes, should be off the table. What’s wrong with that?

If the failures of the Obama administration have proven nothing else it’s that a potential or actual foe who goes around saying what he will or not do, or worse still, following Obama’s penchant for adding when to the disclosure is a fool. Military leaders have been groaning for quite a while about Obama’s full and fair disclosure policy which might have some legitimacy in an SEC-vetted prospectus but is a disaster as a military strategy.

As I’ve said before, I’m not a Trump supporter, but if it’s a choice among him, Clinton, Sanders, or Cruz, the big D has my vote.

Gordito, you couldn't carry Mathews' jock strap. Your gibberish about our Black Hawaiian Fearless Leader is an un-laughable pure fantasy rooted in the emasculation felt by insecure and paranoid losers having to rely on a supposed African American to fix all the ills caused by Bush, his henchmen, and the joke that 'Conservative' thinking is overall.

As far as anyone with a primarily testosterone fed body, and one assumes, brain, having an opinion on ANY type of abortion, well, IT COUNTS FOR NOTHING NADA ZERO. Get, and keep, the hell away from women's bodies with your 19 century rubbish.

19th Century as you're also a self-appointed grammar custodian (netiquette does NOT require proofing comments, in fact it discourages it) ...

Lets make it 4! as I just read about the new abortion drug regs! Yay! For all you fairy tale folks who believe in propaganda filled ancient texts check your science and understand abortions happen all day EVERY DAY in nature- there is truly NOTHING un-natural about it. Unless you are adopting every kid in the orphanage, hell, even then, you got no opinion about it that resonates with someone not ready for a family to be forced on them.

Rita said on the other post identical to this one that the father should be held accountable too.
