On Friday, March 17th, 2017 conservative bulldog, and commentator Tomi Lahren was on ABC’s The View. This is where she took to talk about how she was pro-choice.
“I’m pro-choice, and here’s why, ” Lahren said. “I am a constitutional, ya know, someone who loves the Constitution. I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies. I can sit here and say that as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well…”
It was soon after that people began to criticize Lahren on her viewpoints. It imminently was trending on both Facebook and Twitter. Tomi stated her thoughts about being in favor of limited government and how the government should not have a say on her body.
TheBlaze and Tomi’s Suspension:
The Daily Caller reported on Monday that conservative news company TheBlaze had decided to suspend Lahren citing multiple sources. It has been publically stated that Lahren is suspended for friction with her co-workers during a time period one week where her segment Final Thoughts will not air. But what is more interesting is that her contract that is set to go through September may be on the line as high tensions roll between Lahren and her co-workers.
Lahren did have a sense of humor over the suspension when she tweeted the following tweet on Monday evening:
So I’ve got some “me” time tonight. Anything good on TV? ? #TeamTomi

The Media and Conservative millennial:
It did not take long for the media, conservatives, and millennial to speak out on their thoughts. Many have criticized Lahren for speaking her mind and asserting her right to freedom of speech under the first amendment. Republicans and Conservatives speaking out against Lahren are hypocritical as they called liberals crybabies, triggered, and referred to them as needing a safe space during the last election.
By definition being pro-life is defined as positive for life. The prefix pro means an argument or evidence in affirmation. Pro-Choice refers to the choice of life. Again pro still means an argument or evidence in affirmation in this context.
In this context being pro-life would mean that you would not want to allow justifiable homicide. Justifiable Homicide means killing someone who has been killed convicted in a criminal court for crimes and has been sentenced to death. There is no such thing as selective pro-life. You are either pro-all-life or pro-choice. There is no in between.
Mental Health of the Mother:
Rape. Mental Illness. Drugs. All of these things you must take into account when you find out that you are pregnant. Not only are some women not fit to be parents but they will not take care of themselves during pregnancy causing pain not only to the mother but the unborn child that lives within her.
Physical Threat to the Mother or Child:
Sometimes being pregnant can cause a woman to have health problems. Women have even died as a result of pregnancy. By being pro-life you are saying that no matter what the woman should be required to have the child. If the child has testing done and you find out that it will not be a healthy child you are not only telling the family to get over it but you are telling that child that they have to live with the pain of what they have been diagnosed with.
Quotes from Women in Support of Lahren’s Statement:
“All human lives are of equal importance. I’ve done things in my life that I regret, too. My life isn’t any less important than yours. You support the right to choose life or death, or you don’t. If you’re choosing to support life, you’re supporting all lives. Not just a fetus. A fetus is not more important than everyone else just because it’s a fetus. All lives are of equal importance. The end.” – Alexandra O’Donnell
“But conservatives support the Death penalty? Or does that not fit the agenda?” … “I support the death penalty too. For serial killers, rapists and child molesters. Exactly why I call myself pro choice. And not pro life.” -Hannah Bohmer
There are many reasons why being pro-life or pro-choice is YOUR choice and it something that should be decided on a personal level. One issue does not decide one’s political alliance or preference.
