Tomi Lahren has upset the applecart again, but this time it is conservatives who are unhappy.
During a recent Final Thoughts, Lahren warned President Trump against trying to get Roe v. Wade overturned.
Hear Her Out
Abortion is a no-budge topic for many conservatives.
They want this decision overturned and they want abortion banned, period.
Lahren says she understands “the passion behind the pro-life movement,” but fighting to overturn abortion would be “a mistake.”
She points out that this specific decision has been challenged before on the Supreme Court, with Roe v. Wade always holding up.
She also states there are conservatives on the bench now already on record saying they would not support challenging the decision.
Lahren stated, “We lose when we start tampering with social issues. Do we really want to fight for this, alienate Democrats, moderates, and Libertarians all to lose in the end anyway? That’s a risk that I don’t think is worth taking.”
Another point she made was opening up the can of social issues is a sure-fire way to set the Trump administration back.
If a new justice stirs the pot, it will only lead to more discourse and more divide in the country.
She thinks Republicans should focus their efforts on the economy, immigration, and foreign policy.
As expected, and as Lahren even hinted, there was immediate pushback on social media over her comments.
Conservatives that have supported her on other occasions were quick to criticize her on this point.
They were quick to ask that if an unborn life is not worth defending, then what is?
This is an issue that may never get settled, because it will take a heavily weighted panel of conservative justices to overturn the decision.
Many believe it is just too hot of a potato to touch, especially now.
