Skip to comments.Tomi Lahren: Conservatives Who Go After Roe “Might as Well Spit on the Constitution”
Posted on 07/11/2018 4:13:58 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Tomi Lahren began her appearance on Fox and Friends this morning by saying she wanted to clarify her statements in which she argued against overturning Roe v. Wade. Instead, Lahren doubled down, adding fuel to the fire by saying that conservatives who want to go after Roe might as well spit on the Constitution. Said Lahren:
My problem is with some of my fellow conservatives who have put it out there that we are, quote: coming for Roe v. Wade. That is a mistake, because we are putting it out there and implying that we are sending a justice to the bench to carry out religious judicial activism which is a mistake and its unconstitutional. And if we as conservatives are going to imply that, if thats going to be our messaging, we might as well spit on the Constitution.

Tomi Lahren says conservatives who overtly go after Roe “might as well spit on the Constitution.”
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Just don't paddle it's little a** for touching the TV plug......That's abuse.
I’m sure she was saying the same thing when the Court overturned the “settled law” of Bowers v. Hardwick (1986) that stated that states can outlaw sodomy.
WHY oh why is sending a pro-life judge to the SCOTUS considered to be “religious judicial activism”. It’s stretching things a bit too much... Tomi. And how is this appointment UNCONSTITUTIONAL?!!! Duh!?? I can be an atheist and be pro-life! I simply believe that at conception, a new human being is born... unique in every way...(test the DNA). Therefore I respect and protect that human life through a pro-life agenda. WTH does that have to do with my faith (other than MY faith reinforces my belief).
The hysteria over losing the “right” to kill babies if the Court is packed with Constitutionalist judges tells me that the left is fully aware that abortion is not Constitutional. If they were confidant that it is a Constitutional right, they would not bother mentioning it.
Nasty is as nasty thinks.
This gal isn’t very bright. It’s a shame that anyone takes her seriously.
But abortion isn’t in the Constitution.
Shes a babe and following the rules here, I vote Tomi NOT GUILTY!!!
That said, I thought she made.a thoughtful case for upholding the Constitution without imposing a religious test upon it.
Judges arent supposed to make policy or write their own views into the law but to interpret and uphold it as written.
We got Roe because of liberal judicial activism and its time to put a stop to it.
To be perfectly consistent, the liberals would have to say that the Constitution doesn’t guarantee a right to life. That, I think, is where they’re already coming from, although they don’t dare say it.
She is a conservative. Feel free to fail away.
This is Fox & Friends, not MSNBC or CNN.
lahern is woefully ignorant of the Constitution.
She started out good with OANN but has gone downhill ever since her firing.
55 years after the Left has used it to soak up bloodstains on a butcher’s block called abortion
Very good point.
They should come out and say it.
Theyre the ones imposing litmus tests on judges and the law not us.
We conservatives dont see the courts as another political battleground.
I am glad the liberals are so consistent in their defense of the Constitution. I hear them applying the same argument when 2nd Amendment cases appear before the Court. / s
Nobody wants your abortions...we just want common sense abortion control. (snark)
“If they were confidant that it is a Constitutional right, they would not bother mentioning it.”
That bears repeating.
The hysterical leftists are overreacting because they know this ‘Roe’ decision is on borrowed time at best. They know there’s not even a penumbrae of support for a right to abortion in the constitution. At best the federal government is restricted from interfering in the decision one way or another. That leaves it for the individual states to decide the legality of the procedure. And then to the communities and to the individual.
That’s where it belongs.
