Can you be both conservative and pro-choice?

Political commentator Tomi Lahren's show was suspended after she irked the conservative community by calling pro-life conservatives hypocrites on "The View." Some conservatives say being both pro-choice and conservative is fundamentally incompatible—you can't respect an individual's political platform if that platform refutes an individual's right to life. Tomi Lahren disagrees. She says government should not make choices for anybody, including choices about their bodies. What do you think?

It comes down to what you think defines conservatives. Some on the right think life begins at conception and must be protected.

The great conservatives have always understood that the intrinsic worth of the individual was the foundation point of all we believe and espouse. Without the right to life, there is no liberty, and there is no happiness to pursue.

Tomi Lahren's perspective is a bit more libertarian. If government should be small and stay out of people's lives, then it should not be making decisions about a person's body. Here's how Lahren puts it:

I am a constitutional — you know, someone that loves the constitution, I am someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women should do with their bodies. I can sit here and say that as a Republican, and I can say, “You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”
