Letter: Trump’s remarks clarify stakes in abortion issue

Trump’s remarks clarify stakes in abortion issue

Regarding Donald Trump’s recent remarks concerning abortion, by all means if anti-choice activists prevail and abortion is made illegal, women should be punished. The woman in this case has made a conscious decision to – this is anti-choice rhetoric, not mine – terminate a life. Thus, by the logic of abortion foes, the woman should be held accountable as at least an accomplice to murder.

Either it’s murder, or it isn’t. If a legislature defines it as such, all the guilty parties must be held accountable. Despite his backpedaling, Trump has made the stakes in the abortion issue crystal clear.
