Tomi Lahren Had A Surprising Reaction To The Alabama Abortion Ban

Didn’t see this coming.

Published May 16th

Tomi Lahren is on the right side of history — for once.

After Alabama and Georgia passed the most restrictive anti-abortion laws in the country, outrage lit up on social media. Lahren, who is often quick with her Twitter takes, took a whole day to respond to the new laws (probably because she was weighing whether to side with people with a heart or say nothing). Her opposition though was dry and without the normal hateful passion of her typical tweets.

“I will be attacked by fellow conservatives for saying this but so be it, this Alabama abortion ban is too restrictive,” she tweeted. “It doesn’t save life, it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries. You don’t encourage life via blanket government mandate!”

  1. Reactions on Twitter were mixed, with some praising Lahren for speaking out and others calling her out for hypocrisy:
