Can you be both conservative and pro-choice?
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.”
