Tomi Lahren feels conservative wrath, argues Ala abortion bill is ‘too restrictive’, even ‘dangerous’

When you have rabid, Kool-Aid drinking liberals agreeing with FOX Nation host Tomi Lahren, that’s a good sign she may be on the wrong side of history.

Lahren, a lightning rod for controversy, responded on Twitter to Alabama passing a near-total ban on abortions — the most restrictive abortion law in the country — by calling the legislation “too restrictive” and even “dangerous.”

“I will be attacked by fellow conservatives for saying this but so be it, this Alabama abortion ban is too restrictive. It doesn’t save life, it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries. You don’t encourage life via blanket government mandate!” she tweeted.

Lahren is openly pro-choice, which she claimed was the reason she was fired from The Blaze — she filed a lawsuit against owner Glenn Beck, who said she wasn’t fired, and eventually reached a settlement.

The 2017 comment from Lahren that led to the dispute was shared online by the Washington Examiner’s Siraj Hashmi: “I am someone that loves the Constitution. I am someone that is for limited government. 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.”

That quote was made during an appearance on ABC’s “The View,” and earned the praise of uber-liberal Joy Behar.

Somewhat surprisingly, televangelist Pat Robertson was of a similar mind as Lahren, saying Alabama has “gone too far” with a law that will make performing an abortion a felony in nearly all cases.

“I think Alabama has gone too far,” he said on his “700 Club” show. “They’ve passed a law that would give a 99-year prison sentence to people who commit abortion, there’s no exception for rape or incest.”

“It’s an extreme law and they want to challenge Roe vs. Wade, but my humble view is that this is not the case we want to bring to the Supreme Court because I think this one will lose,” he added.

As for saying that preventing abortions doesn’t “save life,” Lahren defiantly stood by the claim in the face of being called anti-Christian.

“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,” Lahren tweeted. “P.S. you’re not God so don’t you dare evaluate my Christian faith based on your moral superiority complex.”

In the end, it’s newsworthy that Lahren opposes the Alabama law because the liberal media is using her stance to support their pro-abortion position — this being the same liberal media that otherwise destroys her at every opportunity.

Lost in the mix is that with every abortion, an unborn baby is killed.

One thing is certain here, Lahren is a long way off from becoming an official card-carrying liberal:
