Kellyanne Conway says she helped pay for a friend's abortion

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway was recently profiled by New York Magazine about her life and role in Trump's presidency. The interview illuminated many previously unknown tidbits about Conway -- such as her nickname of "Blueberry."

One story of Conway's in particular struck a nerve with some. Conway identifies as pro-life, but told New York Magazine she's "sympathetic" to women who undergo the procedure.

"Do I know anybody who ever got an abortion? Well, of course I do. I've driven them there. I've helped pay," she told New York Magazine.

"You know, when you're young, you're thinking about the person, not the issue. We were younger, and I was focused on her, not on the larger public policy."

Conway had supported the March for Life in January. In her speech, she said: "I am a wife, a mother, a Catholic, counselor to the President of the United States of America, and, yes, I am pro-life."

Conway's New York Magazine interview was released shortly before fellow conservative and The Blaze show host, Tomi Lahren, said she was pro-choice.

While on The View, Lahren said: "You know what? I'm for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well." Lahren was suspended from her show for a week following the comments.
