Tomi Lahren, who is well-known for her talk show on TheBlaze.com — where she often criticizes liberals from a conservative/Republican viewpoint — was suspended from her show fora week after she said she was pro-choice (meaning she supports abortion rights).
Last week she said in an interview on ABC’s The View that she supports a limited government and that she couldn’t be a hypocrite by saying the government should back off her guns, but decide what women can do with their bodies.
Many people who were pro-life (anti-abortion) — were enraged that Tomi would support abortion. Tomi didn’t back down, saying that she spoke her truth and that if people didn’t like it, tough. She said she would never apologize for being an independent thinker.
Tomi is suspended this week. She has a contract with TheBlaze that expires in September — but she could be let go earlier — or not see her contract continue after that.
The issue of abortion continues to be a flash point that causes strong disagreements and divisions among people.
