Right-wing culture warrior Tomi Lahren on Wednesday surprisingly chided some of her fellow conservatives who are eager to use President Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court appointment to overturn “Roe v. Wade,” the landmark ruling that established abortion rights in the United States.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Lahren said that judges should rule by strictly interpreting the law, not because they are on moral crusades on behalf of their favorite causes.
“Implying that we’re sending a Supreme Court justice to the bench to carry out religious judicial activism is a mistake and unconstitutional,” Lahren said. “It’s not what conservatives stand for.”

Despite Lahren’s insistence that such actions are “not what conservatives stand for, however, many conservative Fox viewers took to Twitter to refute her claim — and some even accused her of becoming a “liberal” or a “leftist.”
Check out some of the reactions below.
The liberals are projecting again b/c THIS is exactly what they would do if they were picking a SCOTUS nominee…it would be a person who rules by politics & hate of religion & not by law of the constitution. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump

I’m absolutely shocked that Tomi has no idea what she is talking about, nor about the constitutional basis for overturning Roe. No one is arguing this based on religious conviction. Don’t pretend to speak for conservatives on this Tomi.

Being religious is not a requirement for being pro-life. It's not "judicial activism" to believe in the right to life.

This is Weapons grade stupid. Can @TomiLahren cite where in the Constitution that the framers wanted to be sure and deal with women's reproductive rights?

Relax #TomiLahren Yes we want Roe V Wade overturned, yet that isn't going to happen with this pick. It will be #POTUS next pick that we slam the door on Roe V Wade and maybe I won't have to see your picture with all the left wing nuts that support #Abortion.

The right to life isn’t a religious ideology.
