She has freedom of speech. She can say she is pro-choice; that’s her right. The Blaze is a private company. They have the right to hire who they want. If you do not agree with the message they want to push, they have every right to fire you. Plain and simple.

Conservative media company The Blaze has suspended political commentator Tomi Lahren, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Daily Caller.
Lahren’s show is suspended for effect for at least one week starting Monday, according to TheDC’s sources. A source with direct knowledge of the situation previously told TheDC that Lahren’s contract with the company goes until September, but that she may leave the company before then.
Lahren’s inflammatory style placed her at odds with other employees at The Blaze, as previously reported by TheDC. Tensions were high between Lahren and her coworkers at The Blaze even before she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites in an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday.
In her appearance on The View, Lahren said she is pro-choice and called pro-life conservatives hypocrites, saying, “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.”
Lahren’s denouncement of pro-lifers sparked a backlash from her coworkers, as well as other prominent conservatives.
In her typical adversarial style, Lahren fired back at critics on Twitter, saying, “I speak my truth. If you don’t like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.”
