Trump: ‘Abortion ‘laws are set. … have to leave it that way’

By Around the Web

(ABC News) Donald Trump now says abortion laws should not be changed.

It’s a pendulum swing for the Republican presidential contender on an issue that’s caused him grief since he said earlier in the week there should be “some form of punishment” for women who get abortions if the procedure is outlawed.

He backed off that remark under fierce criticism, saying if abortion were no longer legal, abortionists should be penalized for performing the procedure — not the women who have it.

Now he’s shifted anew, in a “Face The Nation” interview being broadcast Sunday.
