Right-wing activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire posted a short video today praising Donald Trump for saying that abortion should be outlawed and that woman who have abortions should be punished.
Though Trump quickly backtracked on the latter point, Daubenmire, who regularly leads protests outside of Planned Parenthood facilities in his native Ohio, praised the billionaire mogul for being “the most pro-life candidate running for president.”
“Donald Trump said a woman, if she kills her baby, ought to pay a price,” Daubenmire said. “If the dad takes a gun and shoots the unborn child, don’t they charge him with murder? [Ted] Cruz and [John] Kasich, they just want to charge the doctor. Well, the woman is the one most responsible! She’s the one hiring the doctor to kill the baby! Friends, when we have laws without punishment, our laws are merely suggestions. Of course a woman should be punished when killing her baby! Of course she should. Donald Trump is the most pro-life candidate of them all.”
