At the heart of conservatism is the idea that the government is trying to change our country with radical, progressive ideas that tear against the very fabric of morality instituted by God Himself.
That’s why we take the Bill of Rights so seriously. The founders saw these necessary to be spelled out so they were known as unalienable rights, granted by God.
Even before the Bill of Rights was listed, the founders also saw that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were printed on man’s soul by our Maker and would make our country thrive if we left those alone.
So it’s a hard pill to swallow when someone says they are conservative, but then they think those rights only apply to them. Tomi Lahren is one such confused person.
Tomi Lahren, a young 24-year-old conservative firebrand, recently lost much of her credibility when she went on The View and said she’s for killing babies in the womb.
“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 said at the time.
Tomi was an icon on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, but then after her statement, her show was quiety suspended. A royal rumble ensued with Tomi and Glenn Beck exchanging verbal blows across the Twittersphere.
“I’m human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker,”
We’ll have to excuse Tomi for not knowing her Constitutional rights would also be extended to her baby if she were to have one.
No wonder Beck fired her. It’s a hard sell to say you’re conservative and have millions of followers, but not support those rights for all Americans, even the unborn. Tomi has a point about limited government not interfering with her guns, but here’s the problem. She can’t be half-in and half-out when it comes to liberty.
We’re no longer in the 70’s, where courts decided bad case law on limited science. We have technology that shows a baby’s heart beat well before the third trimester. We can see in a mother’s womb via ultrasound and know there are 10 human fingers and 10 human toes. Count’em and then look yourself in the mirror and say “Those aren’t real”.
Hopefully, Tomi returns to her conservative roots as she ages. After all, she’s only 24- she still has time. But out of anyone, Tomi and millennials like her who have grown up with technology their whole lives should know a baby is not just a blob of cells that can be killed for convenience.
