WALSH: Why Tomi Lahren Is Catastrophically Wrong About Abortion

3 min read

Over the weekend, Tomi Lahren argued that conservatives should give up on the abortion fight and stop trying to overturn Roe. She said that it would be a “mistake” to “challenge a position” that “most Americans support.” We should focus on taxes, immigration, and foreign policy and “stop messing with social issues.” The government is incompetent, Lahren reasoned, and therefore it should stop trying to “regulate social issues.” Although she personally wouldn’t get an abortion, she insists, she also believes the government has no right to “dictate” on the subject. Let us then surrender the small and inconsequential matter of the mass slaughter of 60 million human persons and instead turn our attention to more pressing concerns like the adjustable tax rate.

I think Lahren is wrong on probably eight or nine different levels. I will focus now on just three of them:

1) She is not the first to suggest that we pivot from “social issues” and instead try to win hearts and minds by blathering about taxes. Here she is simply restating a mainstream Republican talking point that has been driving the Party and the conservative movement further and further into cultural irrelevancy for at least the past 50 years. The problem with abandoning social issues is that Republicans have already abandoned social issues, and we are still waiting for the positive results this strategy was supposed to generate. I think we will be waiting forever.
