    Does "Walks Back 'Punishment' for Women Remark" mean "withdraws his comment that women should be punished (for illegal abortion)"?

    Yes, he is trying to backtrack. He might be trying to withdraw/retract his statement but, of course, he already said it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
