Donald Trump is getting plenty of criticism from the right side of the aisle for misrepresenting the pro-life movement after he was asked if there should be punishment for abortion if the practice were to be banned. Trump said there should be some form of punishment but he wasn’t sure what that would be:
NEW Trump to @msnbc: "there has to be some form of punishment" for women who have abortions but he has yet to determine what that should be.

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are sure to attempt to get some fundraising mileage out of Trump’s comments:
Just when you thought it couldn't get worse. Horrific and telling. -H https://t.co/Qi8TutsOw9

Your Republican frontrunner, ladies and gentlemen. Shameful. https://t.co/y49Z8YfRgV

Too bad they don’t also think that hundreds of thousands of aborted babies per year in the U.S. is “shameful” and “horrific.”
Trump has since clarified his remarks.
