Donald Trump, Abortion Foe, Eyes Punishment for Women, Then Recants

Donald J. Trump said on Wednesday that women who seek abortions should be subject to some form of punishment if the procedure is banned in the United States, further elevating Republican concerns that his explosive remarks about women could doom the party in the fall.

.

The comment, which Mr. Trump later recanted, attracted instant, bipartisan criticism the latest in a series of high-profile episodes that have shined a light on Mr. Trumps feeble approval ratings among women nationally.

.

In this case, Mr. Trump also ran afoul of conservative doctrine, with opponents of abortion rights immediately castigating him for suggesting that those who receive abortions and not merely those who perform them should be punished if the practice is outlawed.

.

The statement came as Mr. Trump appeared at a town-hall-style forum with Chris Matthews of MSNBC, recorded for broadcast on Wednesday night. Mr. Matthews pressed Mr. Trump, who once supported abortion rights, on his calls to ban the procedure, asking how he might enforce such a restriction.

.

You go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places, Mr. Trump said, after initially deflecting questions. But you have to ban it.

.

He added, after a bit more prodding, There has to be some form of punishment.

.

Hours later, Mr. Trump recanted his remarks, essentially in full, a rare and remarkable shift for a candidate who proudly extols his unwillingness to apologize or bow to political correctness.

.

If abortion were disallowed, he said in a statement, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman.

.

The woman is a victim in this case, as is the life in her womb, he continued.

.

Mr. Trumps Republican rivals moved quickly to distance themselves from his initial comments as well. Gov. John Kasich of Ohio said, Of course women shouldnt be punished.

.

I dont think thats an appropriate response, he told MSNBC. Its a difficult enough situation.

.

The campaign of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said attention should be focused on providers of abortion, not the women who receive them.

.

Once again, Donald Trump has demonstrated that he hasnt seriously thought through the issues, and hell say anything just to get attention, Mr. Cruz said in a statement, adding, Of course we shouldnt be talking about punishing women; we should affirm their dignity and the incredible gift they have to bring life into the world.

.

For Republicans, the chaos felt something like a recurring nightmare. After the defeat of Mitt Romney in 2012, party leaders had hoped to move beyond a reputation for offensive comments on womens issues, emblematized by Todd Akin, a Senate candidate in Missouri who posited that victims of legitimate rape were somehow able to prevent pregnancy.
