Demonstrators gathered near Trump Tower in New York in response to US presidential candidate Donald Trump’s controversial abortion remarks.

On Wednesday, Trump said during an interview with MSNBC that he thought abortion should be banned and women who get the procedure under such a ban should be punished.

After an outcry from all corners of the political spectrum, the reality TV star quickly backpedalled and issued a statement saying the woman should be considered as a victim.

“I think he (Trump) is incapable of putting himself in the position of a woman,” said Catherine Skopic, one of the demonstrators. “If he could understand how women might feel to be raped or end up in any other kind of situation that horrific, he would have a different kind of opinion.”
