Quote from Erica Sackin, Political Communications Director, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
"It’s no surprise Donald Trump has gone into hiding. Trump’s views are wildly out of touch with what the majority of the American people believe: he wants to criminalize access to abortion and has said he believes a woman who has an abortion should be punished.

“Just last week Trump was making promises to anti-abortion extremist Troy Newman, who has ties to some of the most violent anti-abortion activists in this country. If Trump is silent on this Supreme Court ruling, and taking direction from extremists like Troy Newman, just what kind of dangerous policies would Trump put in place as president?”

Troy Newman heads up the group Operation Rescue. According to a statement from one of Newman’s own staffers — Cheryl Sullenger, who served two years in federal prison for trying to bomb an abortion provider — Donald Trump made them a series of promises on how he would restrict abortion in this country.
