What Trump really thinks about abortion
Trump is not religious and has never hung around with any pro-life people until he started running for President. There is no way he’s a True Believer in the pro-life cause. He strategically determined that he has to be pro-life in order to win the Republican nomination.
As I’ve written before, Trump has fifties values. He probably thinks that, since abortion was illegal in the 1950s, it’s no big deal if we make it illegal again.
However, he also probably thinks it’s no big deal that it’s legal, so I expect him to pivot on this issue if he manages to secure the Republican nomination.

It’s worrying though that he didn’t know how to deal with this issue. Pro-lifers are never supposed to want to punish the woman.
It’s common sense that if something is illegal, and someone does it anyway, then there is some sort of punishment. I can’t fault The Donald for not being a career politician who knows what issues require you to throw away common sense.
Trump is going to apply this same common sense to illegal immigrants. You came here illegally, what did you expect would happen?
