Lahren's stance on abortion differs from President Donald Trump, who Lahren supported in the recent election.
Contra Lahren's critics, this is a perfectly coherent position, and one that was once perfectly respectable within the mainstream conservative movement.
Lahren was also slammed by The Reagan Battalion, an anonymous conservative group on Twitter that gained notoriety after posting footage last month of the right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos appearing to condone sexual relationships between "younger boys and older men".
But a report published by The Daily Caller over the weekend indicated that Lahren is "likely" on the way out at The Blaze following her appearance Friday on "The View", during which she declared herself pro-choice on the issue of abortion.
The political commentator said she is against an overreaching government that tells women what to do with their bodies.
Lahren wields significant influence in conservative circles, particularly on Facebook, where she has over 4 million followers and her videos average about 5 million views.
"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 do with their bodies", she added.
"No one hunts small deer", she tweeted, "this too shall pass". So the fact that she's pro-choice was kind of a big surprise.
"The Blaze can not be about me, me, me, me", he added later, in another apparent shot at Lahren. Trump is anything but libertarian. Beck tweeted Heck's article with the message, "Peter Heck gives me no quarter and he shouldn't".
"Limited government doesn't mean no government; that would be anarchy, which culminates in a "Mad Max" scenario where the powerful rule the weak based on their desires rather than enduring principles of right and wrong that apply equally to all people". "I'm someone that's for limited government", she said. While Hasselbeck leans rightward, she supports abortion rights and same-sex marriage.
However, after her defense this morning, it seemed women in the audience, on both sides of the political spectrum, were impressed.
Lahren's response? "If we go back to the campaign... If Kellyanne Conway had been a Democrat, you all at this table would be applauding her, singing her praises".
