Donald Trump said Wednesday that if abortion were to become illegal in the U.S., women who undergo the controversial procedure should be legally punished — a position the Republican front-runner scrambled to reverse just hours later.

In an interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews set to air Wednesday evening, Trump said “there has to be some form of punishment” for women who have abortions — a position unpopular with even the most ardently pro-life.

Trump’s comments were made in response to a question from Matthews: “Should abortion be punished? This is not something you can dodge.”

“Look, people in certain parts of the Republican Party, conservative Republicans, would say, ‘Yes, it should,’” the businessman and 2016 front-runner replied.

“How about you?” Matthews asked.

“I would say it’s a very serious problem and it’s a problem we have to decide on,” Trump said. “Are you going to send them to jail?”

“I’m asking you,” Matthews said.

“I am pro-life,” Trump said.

“How do you actually ban abortion?” Matthews pressed.

“Well, you go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places but we have to ban it,” Trump said. “There has to be some form of punishment.”

“For the woman?” Matthews interjected.

“Yeah,” Trump replied as he nods.

The brash billionaire wasn’t specific about what the punishment should be, only saying it would “have to be determined.”

“They’ve set the law and frankly the judges, you’re going to have a very big election coming up for that reason because you have judges where it’s a real tipping point and with the loss of Scalia, who was a very strong conservative, this presidential election is going to be very important,” Trump said. “When you say what’s the law, nobody knows what the law is going to be. It depends on who gets elected.”

In a statement provided to TheBlaze, Trump said that ”this issue is unclear and should be put back into the states for determination.”

“Like Ronald Reagan, I am pro- life with exceptions, which I have outlined numerous times,” he added.

Soon after, Trump released an additional statement, reversing his earlier remark.

“If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman,” the campaign statement said. “The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. My position has not changed – like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions.”

Trump’s assertion that he is pro-life during the 2016 election season is a reversal of previous positions. During a 1999 interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump said he is “pro-choice in every respect.”

  • bill mcgowan says:

  • Pete Ferretti says:

    Because the entire Media took it out of context!!! He was at fault for answering a HYPOTHETICAL question—shows how stupid he can be at times!!! The question was “if Abortion is made illegal and a women gets an Abortion anyway, who would you punish”? It was a trick question and the sucker bit! It will be 20 or more years before that can happen, if ever!

  • RevG says:

    Mr. Trump has referred to Illegal Abortions.
    Not legal abortion.

  • mark says:

    Crimes without punishment, make laws mute.

  • deb says:

    left side always want it they way trump calls it as he sees it

  • Patrick driscoll says:

    I assume this question triggered by CM’s Town Hall with Trump.
    CM’s always has a huge left-leaning agenda, so his approach is always suspect. I would have told this idiot to shut his obama hole and let me speak.
    The question was about an unreal circumstance, where abortion as illegal. Trump said the woman should be punished and then back-up and suggested that the person doing the procedure should be punished. If we assume that abortion is illegal, then why should the woman not be also guilty of this illegal act. It is illegal to kill a person, so if the woman kills or hires someone to kill, is she not guilty of murder for that illegal act?
    If this is about that crazy media woman, then here again an ignorant public is wrong. The Secret Service and the woman are at fault here.
    The Secret Service must maintain a safety zone around the person they are protecting. No one or woman should be able to penetrate that safety zone and this crazy woman was advised to stop and did not listen. The Secret Service should had seized her and detained her. She was 100% wrong for entering the zone and the Secret Service did not do their job. Trump’s manager had to do the Secret Service job. This was not a lunch line at a private school somewhere. This candidate was already attacked before. The Secret Service guys should be fired for allowing the public, this crazy woman, for getting that close to the candidate.
    Who need the SS if they are that weak??

  • Partick driscoll says:

    CM is a left-leaning idiot.
    If abortion were illegal, then the woman would be committing a crime and would be hiring a practitioner to help her.
    Think both could be prosecuted for the crime.
    If I kill a person or hire someone else to kill a person, who should be punished? CM is never after the truth, but only looking to validate his position, which most of the time is f/u.
    The media woman and Secret Service at fault for allowing anyone to access the secure zone that should exist between the public and the candidate. They did not do their job. This lady should have be detained and prevented from close contact with the candidate. Trump’s mgr. is the hero here as he did the job the Secret Service should have done. Detain the woman and fire the Secret service guys. This is not a lunch line at some private school. Get some real Secret Service to protect Trump and get rid of that annoying media woman.

  • Walter Eichler says:

    Women wish to be equals, should they not bear responsibility for their actions? If, as Chris Mathews proposed, that abortion became illegal would not the woman bear responsibility for seeking out an illegal service? Do they not arrest Johns and hookers? Is someone who pays a hitman less responsible for a murder than the hitman himself? Women need to grow up, you do not assume responsibility you earn it. If you can not take the heat, get out of the fire.

  • gf says:

    Women that have abortions, are hurting themselves.

    • Avalon Adam says:

      No they are doing America a favour by not bringing into this world anothe runwanted kid who will be in reciept of welfare for the rest of his / her life. Just how are they hurting themselves? Friends of mine whove had abortions tell me of nothing but great relief they have felt afterwards

  • Doug Davis says:

    It depends on the law .if the law makes it illegal than yes know should be above the law.But there should be something in there that would let women for med., rape & ext. not to punish them. but then help them.

  • Jeane Jeffery says:

    Dr’s who perform abortions against the law should be punished. Women who use abortion as birth control should be punished. I remember the woman in the hospital in for her 11th abortion. What do you think?

  • BEVERLYVANALST says:

    IF YOU KILL A WOMEN THAT IS PREGNANT BY ACCIDENT OR OTHERWISE THE LAW SAYS YOU MURDERED TWO HUMANS .
    WHY THE DIFFERENCE ?????

  • Ellender says:

    Trump is a normal man–he will not hurt a LADY–but a WOMAN that wants something for
    nothing (now that is very different)
    STAY ON COARSE –DO NOT LISTEN TO THE
    PC CROWD.

  • Ron says:

    If it becomes law all parties need to be affected. It’s the woman’s ‘choice’…she made it knowing the ‘consequences.’

  • Anita Sue says:

    The same people, that WANT abortion to be classified as illegal, are the same people that still believe alcohol and birth control should be illegal. If they want abortion to become illegal, exactly what is it that they want to happen to the perpetrators? If a drug dealer, who sells illegal drugs, is arrested for such and then the person who buys those same drugs is arrested for acquiring them illegally is also arrested, since that’s the LAW; how then, should abortionist and their clients, be treated any less severely under the “law?!”
    My belief along with millions of women worldwide is that government just stay away from my rights to my body. Morality cannot be legislated. Abortion is as old as civilization. Right or wrong, the woman that is having to make that decision is the person that has to reconcile within herself that decision, for the remainder of her life. We, as an “enlightened” society, have to realize that forcing abortionist and their patients, back into the cloaked, darkened, back alley, wire hanger, bleed to death, boiling water ablation

    • Avalon Adam says:

      I also find it crazy tha tthe same bible bashing anti abortionists ae in favour of teh death penalty. A certain inconsistancy with their god if forgivness.

  • Barry says:

    Of course if abortion, which is murder, were against the law as it should be then everyone who breaks the law should be punished as any other lawbreaker. Has everyone lost their minds?

    • Avalon Adam says:

      Well the supreme court doesn’t consider it murder. Or does the US consitution and federal law just morph into what Barry says?

  • Mark Andrews says:

    Because women are ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’, and ‘disgusting animals.”

  • Paula P White says:

    He could not be successful in business if he wanted to punish women regarding abortion. He was trying to say, if something is against the law, there would be consequences, but they put words in his mouth and you all are blowing out of proportion like all news these days. It is ridiculous. He has been a businessman, not a politician and I like that. He is shaking things up and got us all talking. It is a good thing. Too much news but at least we are awake as a result.

  • Robin Dellinger says:

    I am a female military veteran. Politicians are the reason so much is wrong in this country. These gotcha questions by the media to make Trump look like he has a war on women would be laughable if it wasn’t so down right disgusting. Trump admits to his affairs and owns up to his mistakes. Can Cruz, Kasich, Clinton and Sanders say the same? Cruz had an opportunity to put speculation to rest and say that he has always been faithful to his wife – case closed, but he couldn’t do it. That makes any statement Cruz makes going forward come under scrutiny since he can’t answer that one question honestly. He may not like it that Trump’s camp attacked his wife, but why did he allow his surrogate Carly Fiorina to attack Melania? Seems like Ms. Fiorina has more of a track of war on women than Trump does. American people are fed up with ALL politicians.

  • Lillie says:

    the reporter did not give him a change to answer the question he ask to many questions so fast Mr. Trump did not have time to answer and all you new people jumped on the first part
    he was trying to say we do not need abortion we need clinics to help prevent pr-agency
    especial in younger women and it would save the government a lot more money . and they could get help to prevent an un wanted baby

  • Louis B. Jones Sr. says:

    The true Punisher of women is Hillary Clinton. She is the one who for a vote stayed with a Pig of a Husband and then called ever woman a whore, and a liar and tried to make her husband a saint when time after time the women were were victimized over and over again. Perhaps it was her fault because She could not satisfy his needs, so she blamed the women he victimized to clear her conscience. After all 60 to 75 % of the nation does’t trust her and knows she is a LIAR.

  • GJ says:

    Sounds like a bunch of crxxp to me. More to stir up the people . .

  • Denny says:

    Trump was taken totally out of context with a hypothetical question. Abortions are legal. Trump was asked abut illegal abortions. ot legal abortions.
