Tomi Lahren is known for her outbursts and strong opinions on her pro-Republican show, “The Blaze,” on Fox News. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and many respect her for doing so. Many of her followers feel she says what needs to be said, but she may have hit a wall when she was on The View speaking about pro-choice.

When the woman from The View spoke to Lahren about her pro-choice stance, she gave a response that left most conservatives scratching their heads.
“I’m pro-choice, and here’s why,” said the 24-year-old. “I am a constitutional, y’know, someone that loves the Constitution.” While many Americans love the Constitution, none that I know use the term, “constitutional” as a noun to describe themselves.
“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,” Lahren added. “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.”
The audience cheers after she gives her input on the hot topic. One of the women, (I don’t watch The View so I don’t know her name) told Lahren that she should be speaking to women around the U.S. about this.
The statement she gave was honestly cookie cutter, but that’s fine. The issue being raised by many is that there is not a single mention of “killing babies” in the Constitution. So what exactly is she referring to?
She could be referring to the 14th Amendment, the right to life that outlines “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law” but that sounds to be a stretch.
The other issue here is she needs to explain how her stance on this topic reflects conservative woman because the majority of conservatives are pro-life. A conservative pundit who makes a living “speaking” for conservatives seems way off the mark here.
If the only thing that comes out of this is a new word we can expect to hear in the 2020 debates, Lahren can consider herself lucky. She might have just alienated her conservative base, in essence, her bread and butter.
