Barrett is an ambitious conservative woman who has been able to thrive in this anti-feminist mold. She signed a 2015 letter affirming her support for the Catholic Church’s conservative teachings “on the dignity of the human person and the value of human life from conception to natural death; on the meaning of human sexuality, the significance of sexual difference and the complementarity of men and women; on openness to life and the gift of motherhood; and on marriage and family founded on the indissoluble commitment of a man and a woman.” Those teachings, the letter said, “promote women’s flourishing.”

Trump punishment for abortion

Donald Trump: “The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment.”

Chris Matthews: “For the woman?”

Donald Trump: “Yeah, there has to be some form.”

Chris Matthews: “Ten cents? Ten years? What?”

Donald Trump: “Let me just tell you—I don’t know. That I don’t know. That I don’t know.”

Chris Matthews: “Why not?”

Donald Trump: “I don’t know.”

Chris Matthews: “You take positions on everything else.”

Donald Trump: “Because I don’t want to—I—frankly, I do take positions on everything else. It’s a very complicated position.”
