Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren doesn’t think it’s a good idea for conservatives to push for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Lahren, who is reportedly appearing in an upcoming anti-abortion movie about Roe v. Wade, said right at the top, “Pressing for a Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade would be a big mistake.”
She cited a recent poll saying most people support it and argued that the focus for conservatives should be on issues like the economy and immigration.
Because, she added, “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 I don’t think is worth taking. I’m saying this as someone who would personally choose life, but also feels it’s not the government’s place to dictate. This isn’t a black and white issue and I would never judge anyone in that position.”
Lahren famously talked about being pro-choice on The View last year, though she later clarified her views:
Listen, I am not glorifying abortion. I don't personally advocate for it. I just don't think it's the government's place to dictate. https://t.co/qRjbAtJdo7
