Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren made headlines yesterday after she spoke out against Alabama's ban on all abortions, which outlaws the procedure even in cases of rape or incest and punishes doctors who perform abortions with up to 99 years in prison.

The ban "doesn’t save life, it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries," she said yesterday. "You don’t encourage life via blanket government mandate!"


Those words attracted the ire of white nationalist Faith Goldy, who said Lahren's perspective "is anti-Christian, anti-family, and anti-freedom as all liberty depends on life."

Lahren responded soon afterward.

"If you think banning abortion with no exception for rape or incest will stop women from terminating pregnancy, you’re not being honest with yourself," she said, warning Goldy against evaluating her "Christian faith based on your moral superiority complex."

Lahren is one of the most divisive figures on Twitter, but people gave her credit and thanked her for coming out against the law just the same.

Lahren's views on abortion have previously troubled members of the far right.

Lahren admitted that she feels the government has no place weighing in on the abortion debate during a 2017 appearance on The View.

“I’m … you know, someone that loves the Constitution and I am someone that’s for limited government, and so I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say ‘I’m for limited government, but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies,’" she said at the time. "I can sit here and say that, as a Republican, and I can say that ‘You know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body as well.'”

Lahren's views proved so angered conservatives that she was suspended from her show on The Blaze.

Last year, Lahren faced similar criticism after she said that overturning Roe v. Wade “would be a big mistake.” While Lahren said that she’s personally pro-life, she stressed that she believes “it’s not the government’s place to dictate” what women do with their own bodies.

Republicans often claim their party has the upper hand with voters when it comes to fiscal responsibility. When a Democrat is in office, one of the chief complaints you can count on from Republican lawmakers is that the President is ballooning the deficit, or sending the federal debt skyward.

This hasn't quite been the case when it's a Republican President occupying the White House.

Far-Right radio host Rush Limbaugh received widespread backlash earlier this month after laughing at the idea of gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Presidential contender Pete Buttigieg kissing his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man," President Donald Trump.

Despite the backlash, Limbaugh recently revealed that Trump himself called and told him not to apologize for his words about Buttigieg, leaving some to question whether Trump was sincere when he said recently that he wouldn't have a problem with a gay President.
