Trump said on Wednesday that if abortions were illegal, there would need to be a punishment for women who have them.
 
In an MSNBC taped town hall interview airing later Wednesday, Chris Matthews asks Trump whether abortions should be illegal.
 
“Look, people in certain parts of the Republican Party, conservative Republicans, would say, ‘Yes, it should,’” Trump said.
 
After being further pressed, Trump said: “Well, you go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places but we have to ban it."
 
Trump said that "there has to be some form of punishment" for women who get abortions illegally.
 
He didn't give a specific punishment but said it would "have to be determined."
