Tomi Lahren announces she's pro-choice: "Stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body too"

Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren has reportedly been “banned permanently” from The Blaze.

Ms Lahren was suspended last week after flip-flopping on abortion and declaring herself pro-choice. Now, sources close to Glenn Beck’s network say that she has been banned permanently.

“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one insider told the New York Post.

"He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country... He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”

Earlier this month, Ms Lahren announced that she was pro-choice during an appearance on ABC’s daytime show, The View.

She also said that its hypocritical for conservatives to be in favor of limited government while opposing abortion.

“I am someone that’s for limited government," she said. "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.”

Shortly after the report surfaced on Sunday, Ms Lahren seemed to issue a vague response on Twitter. "Never do the envy, jealousy and insecure stuff," she wrote. "Be the hustler, the well-wisher, the go-getter."
