Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday that women who end pregnancies should face punishment if the United States bans abortion, triggering a torrent of criticism from both sides of the abortion debate, including from his White House rivals.After MSNBC broadcast a clip of an interview with Trump, the billionaire businessman rowed back his remarks, first saying that the abortion issue should be handled by states and later that doctors who performed abortions should be the ones held responsible. U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, the third candidate for the Republican nomination for the Nov. 8 election, said Trump had not thought through the issue.In the MSNBC interview, which is to air in full later Wednesday, Trump said if the United States banned abortion, some women would seek to end pregnancies illegally.Anti-abortion groups said Trump's comments were at odds with their own stance.Later, Trump walked back his comments further to say doctors, not women, should be responsible.
