An Idaho Lt. Gov. candidate thinks women who get abortions should be executed

All three candidates agreed that abortion is murder. The host, David Shannon asked if women who get abortions should get the death penalty and Nonini agreed saying, “Yes. There should be no abortion and anyone who has an abortion should pay.”
After the backlash that he deserved for saying that he tried to backtrack on Twitter saying:
