The most common reason that people said they would continue to support Donald Trump, in spite of the warnings issued by Christian leaders like Philip Yancey and Max Lucado, was because ostensibly, Trump is anti-abortion.

The slew of recent articles about abortion has only reinforced the importance of getting our government and its laws off our bodies. The old joke that if men got pregnant, abortions would be handled "drive-through" like at a fast food restaurant -- is no joke.

You Can't Be Truly Feminist If You Don't Want Women to Control Their Own Bodies

Rebecca Griffin | Posted 04.25.2016 | Women
Rebecca Griffin

Feminism's links with reproductive freedom go deeper. It means treating women as human beings rather than baby-making machines. It's recognition that women have talents and skills to offer the world beyond their ability to procreate. You can want women to do better, but you simply can't be a feminist if you won't stand up for reproductive freedom.

Punishment is the logical response when you are referring to a medical procedure as murder. And when you smear abortion providers with hyperbolic stories about selling "baby parts," you can't be surprised when people react violently to put a stop to what they are told is horrific violence.

Will this label change make medication abortion more feasible in states facing medically unnecessary, politically motivated restrictions or will politicians with the goal of limiting abortion access just continue to find new ways to restrict access? Time will tell, but this new action from the Food and Drug Administration seems to be a step in the right direction.

The Donald has a point: if abortion ought to be illegal, why shouldn't the woman who get one be guilty of a crime? And why hasn't the pro-life movement advocated for punishing a woman who gets an abortion?

In a sense, Donald Trump is correct that women who have abortions if the procedure is banned should face "some sort of punishment." Before you misconstrue my opinion, please note that I have always been an advocate of pro-choice.

Abortions Should Never Be Like Russian Roulette

Rep. Alan Grayson | Posted 04.05.2016 | Politics
Rep. Alan Grayson

There was a great deal of consternation last week when Donald Trump suggested that women who undergo an abortion should be incarcerated. I share that consternation. But I also feel that consternation when Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and other men (always a man, never a woman) suggest that doctors who perform an abortion should be incarcerated.

What is most offensive about the Trump, Cruz, Carson, anti-abortion contention that women who have abortions are "victims" is that it is profoundly dishonest and insulting to the dignity and integrity of women. They should be ashamed.
