Conservative host Tomi Lahren's show on The Blaze TV did not air Monday during its regularly scheduled time slot after reports surfaced that she had been suspended following comments she made on abortion.

Lahren said Friday on ABC's "The View" that, on the issue of abortion, she is a pro-choice conservative.

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin asked Lahren, 24, about her pro-choice stance, which surprised some of the other hosts.

"You call yourself a conservative Republican and a constitutional conservative, but you also consider yourself pro-choice," Hostin said. "Which is interesting to me because 68 percent of conservative Republicans think that abortion should be illegal across the board."

Lahren responded that she is pro-choice and defended her stance by discussing her belief in limited government.

"I'm pro-choice and here's why. I am a constitutional–you know, someone that loves the Constitution," Lahren said. "I am someone that's for limited government, 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."

Lahren's comments did not go over well with her co-workers at the Blaze. Her talk show is being suspended for at least a week effective Monday, according to the Daily Caller.

Lahren's show is suspended 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.

Lahren defended her pro-choice stance on Twitter over the weekend.

"I have moderate, conservative, and libertarian views. I'm human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker," Lahren added.

The Blaze's founder, Glenn Beck, appeared to publicly criticize Lahren for her comments.

Leon Wolf, managing editor of the Blaze, confirmed to CNNMoney that Lahren's show would not be airing for a week.

Around the time her show normally aired, Lahren fired off a motivational tweet.
