Cecile Richards: Trump’s Position on Criminalizing Abortion Same as Kasich, Cruz

‘Although people may not want to hear it, women will be punished, we know they will be’

RICHARDS: "Obviously what he said was outrageous. I think what’s important, I’m glad you pushed him on it, though. What’s important to recognize is Donald Trump’s position on making abortion a crime is the exact same position that John Kasich has. That Ted Cruz has. And frankly, the Republican National Committee and their platform. So I I think that the logical —  next question which you pushed him on, what will we do when women are criminals and doctors are criminals, because abortion is outlawed. That’s a legitimate question. Although people may not want to hear it, women will be punished, we know they will be."
