I call foul! Why is it she can't be pro choice? I am not but I am not offended by her view. Isn't this what is wrong in our country a failure to respect someone else's views. Not all conservatives are the same like not all liberals are the same. The middle has to be respected as well.
Suspended. Really? So she isn't allowed to have a belief? If it differs then she is persecuted? What she said makes perfect sense and there are many Republicans feel the same. I can't stand liberals because the majority are hypocrites. Tomi, is not a hypocrite but The Blaze sure seems to be. Acting like liberal snowflakes.
Ah, Glen Beck. Tomi's reasoning was sound regardless of how one feels about abortion. What is unfortunate is that other employees feel they have input into Tomi's future. She is smart, clever and attractive so I'm betting she'll land on her feet regardless of whether Beck sticks to his "I don't expect everyone here to believe the same . . . ."
Making abortion a litmus test for the Republican Party is a mistake. There are Conservatives who are pro-choice but remain fiscal conservatives who are longtime party members. The GOP remains a big-tent party with room for those with a different perspective on this and other issues. For those who go by the moniker of pro-life, it encompasses opposition not only to abortion, but also opposition to the death penalty and euthansia. For many, it signifies that life is authored by God and only He can erase it.
There are also pro-life Democrats, including Bart Stupak and Bob Casey, who have encountered opposition within their own political party in favor of the prevailing pro-choice viewpoint.
It is a very personal decision with which we may never arrive at full agreement.
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.
Tomi was not suspended for being pro choice she was suspended for calling pro life conservatives hypocrites and for her lack of consistency of belief. Just nine days prior on her own program she was calling pro choice people baby killers. Research, then comment please.
I'm not in that idiot's body, someone else was! Frankly I don't give a rip what she does with her own body, its the destruction of an innocent person I'm concerned about. If you don't want a kid then don't get pregnant! That should be pretty simple for everyone to understand. Instead, the pro-abortion crowd try to make the argument about them, when it is not about them at all. She can do anything she wants except kill a baby.
Tomi Laheren has a very good point. The problem is making the issue black or white, abortion or no abortion and getting the government involved. There are already circumstances that warrant an abortion such as rape, incest. Both these situations can be terminated early on in the unwanted and unlawful pregnancy. I suspect most reasonable and understanding people could agree that forcing a rape or incest victim to carry the result of a criminal and vile act is beyond civilized.
For those who defend the fetus at the expense of the welfare and emotional well being of the female I suggest you reduce her to the status of an implement or incubator. It is easy to make these decisions and force your opinions on someone else and especially easy for someone who isn't female and capable of being pregnanant.
I totally and completely reject partial birth abortion, a legal procedure devised by the Democrat Liberal Left. But I also reject the idea of the government getting involved with forcing a woman into being an implement or incubator. There must be some point in the early stages at which the question can be answered without endangering the mother physically or emotionally or ending a viable life. Tomi Lahren should not be fired for her opinion. She is 24 years old. It will be interesting to see how her opinion might change as the years go by.
I am sure a lot of Republican women feel the same way. It's our body our choice, however I feel there should be limits on time, like not over 3 months. It's Not a birth control, we have lost of them on the market. As long as our tax dollars aren't paying for the women that choose abortion, its their decision.
Tomi has drunk the elixir of the right to kill your child. The government should go back to the way it should be. Out of the life of women's bodies and for the rights of all bodies. The born and the preborn (which is not a women's body unless it is a girl). Take you fist out of God's face and start acting like a real women and care for the unborn. Shame on you Tomi. Thanks Blaze for dumping another weak women.
It is not right for the government to get in a womans body? But it is alright for the government to legalize someone else getting in a womans body and killing a precious, a living, an innocent, a helpless, baby that has no one to speak up for there right to life. That is hypocrisy of the highest level. I don't care what you believe, what your opinion is, or even what my opinion is. All that really matters is what God's opinion is about the matter of abortion. He is never wrong and He calls it murder. Tomi, I really enjoyed your show and thought you had a great future in conservative broadcasting and I pray you will soon change your mind on this matter. God's way is always the right and best way. It is never hypocritical. I stand with God on this matter and I hope when you really think about it you will too.
I think her suspension has more to do with calling people who are pro life 'hypocrites' than it does with her actual stance on abortion. Keep in mind that the reasons for her suspension (she hasn't been fired yet) have not been disclosed so you're all hyperventilating based on conjecture rather than actual fact. Also keep in mind that no mater where you work, if you say things that piss off the majority of the customers, you're probably going to find yourself getting disciplined no matter how much you cry about your first amendment rights.
I’m pro-choice, and here’s why. 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.
What a stupid line of reasoning. I am for limited government AND against abortion. I don't think the government should be involved in regulating abortion, marriage or healthcare. That is not the purview of the government. But Lahren cannot see past her single-point ideology that to be pro-life is necessary to desire an increased role in government. What twisted logic.
All the comments are funny...I don't see anything from either explaining why she got suspended and Beck says right here that he respects and likes different points of views. So did she get suspended? I don't know from the article. Is there an internal reason she wasn't on? I don't know but look at all the comment outrage that she was suspended for being pro life. I read no proof...so faux outrage or something that actually happened for that reason. Idk.
All women absolutely should have the right to say what they wil do with "their" bodies. The problem is that women that decide to have an abortion are deciding what to do with someone elses body. Mother and child are two seperate entities. Women DO NOT have the right to choose what they do with the babys body, That right was forfeited with the decision to have unprotected sex. The extremely small percentage of pregnancy by rape not withstanding... thats a totally different argument.
I too am for smaller government but im not for no government. The government should inforce the laws of the land and the laws of the land should not infringe on the laws of God or even common human decency.
She is a product of her generation. May be post aborted herself, or has helped friends or family with their abortion. When one educates himself/ herself on the humanity of the unborn person (which every one of us was at one time) one cannot tolerate that person's deliberate destruction.
Silly me! I thought that I had read "I try to hire people who have a different opinion because I believe in being intellectually rigorous. I don’t want strawmen. I want people to have a real argument on the other side so we can learn from each other, and we can grow ..." I guess he only means that IF you agree with him "eventually". Look I am a big girl and can either get or not get what I WANT. But the government does not need to have a say REGARDLESS of my personal feelings.
