if you listened to her on the View...she said she is pro choice, that she does not believe government should have say in what a woman does with her body..this article says she thinks government should have a say...either a typo or firing people up again...I too am a conservative, but I think under the right circumstances women should have the right to chose...on the other hand, using abortion in place of safe sex is wrong...
As a staunch pro-lifer, I couldn't care less that Tomi is pro-choice. She's just a libertarian. So am I. I think her argument is miserably flawed and I hope she changes her mind, but I do understand her point and I really don't care. Just because she said one thing I don't like doesn't mean she gets thrown under the bus.
All here people who call themselves conservatives are suppose to be for free speech. If you are going to ostracize a young, brilliant woman because she doesn't agree with you 100%... and has the temerity to say so... then you should join the pc police on the other side.
I would like to hear a cogent, thoughtful explanation of the difference between abortion and murder. It is my understanding that the intentional taking of a human life is murder.
I understand that exceptions exist, such as war, or state sanctioned executions. But I fail to see how abortion falls into either exception.
I want to thank all responders in advance.
If you believe in unalienable rights, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, you cannot be pro-choice. That human life in the womb is a unique individual with its own DNA. It is not part of the mothers body and she has no right to murder anyone, in or out of the womb. That human life has its own right to life. We were all fetuses once. That was us at our earliest stage of development. Wether we are killed then, or killed right now, we would be just as dead. And there is no difference.
Lahren's quote below makes no sense to me. She's pro choice. She's for limited government. So she can't say she's for limited government. She thinks the government should decide what women do with their bodies. What?
“I’m pro-choice, and here’s why. I am a constitutional, y’know, someone that 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'm like Tomita pro choice conservative. I agree with her comments on the government but my reason for protection choice is it's your body, your conscious and when we die and go before God it's your sin not mine. I don't judge those who do for the afore mentioned reasons, I may not agree but it us your choice.
The abortion rate has fallen consistantly since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. Abortion laws vary by state, but abortion rates have fallen in both states with abortion restrictions and those without. The keys to lowering abortion rates are reliable birth control, good health care for women and education.
Isn't everyone's goal to eliminate abortions altogether?
So why is the pro-life movement, who wants to ban abortion, also supporting legislation that restricts access to birth control and defunds programs that provide the education and contraceptive access to women and lead to lower rates of abortion? Since education and birth control have a greater effect on abortion rates than banning abortion, it makes more sense to me to vote in favor of women’s reproductive rights, which at this point is the domain of the pro-choice movement.
Tomi is entitled to her opinion, just like every talk show employee. Tomi is being grilled for her "view", yet joy behoumouth-behar is still employed right along w/"whoopsie" goldberg & the rest. I really don't think it kosher that Tomi is being targeted when real issues like Comey/criminal killary/Shumer/Warren/Pelosi/McCain/Waters/federal judges interefering with presidential executive orders, and so many other radically important issues need immediate address/action. Tomi should be permitted to speak her mind regardless of whom it bothers; that's the whole idea of having a controversial spot in the media.
