Chrissy Teigen, according to Ted Cruz, suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2020 when she lost her third child, but she is now ‘characterizing it as a life-saving abortion’ to boost her pro-choice position in the Roe v. Wade argument.
In September 2020, Teigen, 36, lost her third child, a boy she and husband John Legend had named Jack, at the midway point of her pregnancy.
She was forced to deliver Jack at 20 weeks due to a placental abruption, knowing he would not survive more than a few minutes outside the womb.
Teigen, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, recently revealed at a Los Angeles event that she had a life-saving abortion and has only recently come to grips with it in light of the Roe v. Wade decision being overturned.
Let’s call it what it was: an abortion.
Abortion to save my life for a child with no chance of survival,’ she added.
In a recent episode of his podcast show Verdict with Ted Cruz, the Republican Senator contested her statements and stated she was only portraying it in this manner to support her pro-choice attitude.
“She may wish to label it as an abortion in this political setting, but at the time she described it as a miscarriage, and it sounds like it was a fair description,” he added.

Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend in 2020. She had a placental abruption at 20 weeks and was forced to deliver her baby, Jack, knowing that he would die minutes later in order to save her life. Several weeks earlier, she stated that the abortion was “life-saving.”
If there is a medical process, it is not an abortion.
It is the law in all 50 states, and it should be the law in all 50 states, that doctors may act to save the mother’s life, even if doing so results in the terrible death of the child.
Nobody, not even the staunchest pro-life activists, contends that when the mother’s life is in danger, extraordinary medical measures cannot be taken to preserve the mother’s life.
The conservative hostess Liz Wheeler had asked him, “Two years ago, halfway through her pregnancy, she sadly lost her kid. She had an abruption of the placenta.
The labor had to be induced because he was not yet viable. She miscarried and uploaded tragic images of the miscarriage online.
Chrissy Teigen just came to the realization that her miscarriage two years ago was truly an abortion. What is your answer to Chrissy Teigen?’
Then, Wheeler stated that describing the loss as an abortion merely ‘added to the tragedy’
Tuesday morning, Teigen did not immediately reply to DailyMail.com’s inquiry regarding Cruz’s remark.
Teigen was open about the family’s loss, posting images from when she had to deliver Jack prematurely and then wrote extensively about the issues in a Medium piece.
Teigen noted in her Medium article, “My doctors diagnosed me with a placenta abruption.” The illness is rare yet fatal for both mother and child.
PLACENTAL ABRUPTION IS A RARE BUT FATAL PREGNANCY COMPLICATION PROTECTED UNDER THE ROE V. WADE DECISION.
Placental abruption is the separation of the placenta from the uterus. Undiagnosed, this uncommon but extremely hazardous condition can prove fatal for both mother and child.
In most cases, it is identified in the third trimester, but in Teigen’s case, it was detected sooner.
The illness is so hazardous because it not only deprives the fetus of nourishment and oxygen, limiting its development, but also causes the mother to bleed profusely.
In the third trimester (27 weeks and beyond), a mother can deliver safely and both mother and child can survive with close monitoring.
In Teigen’s case, she was seven weeks short of achieving this milestone with Jack.
In certain instances, there may be no outward bleeding; rather, blood may become trapped in the uterus.
Placental abruption can be caused by abdominal trauma or damage, such as from a car accident or a fall, or by the sudden loss of the fluid that surrounds and cushions the baby in the uterus.
There may be no reason, and there is no way to prevent it totally.
The conservative hostess Liz Wheeler stated that referring to Teigen’s miscarriage as an abortion “added to the tragedy.”
She was admirably forthright at the time of her miscarriage, writing in detail about the abruption in a Medium article.
“My physicians diagnosed me with a partial placenta abruption,”
I had always experienced placenta issues. Miles had to be delivered a month early because his tummy was not receiving enough nourishment from my placenta. This, however, was my first abruption. We attentively observed the situation in the hopes that it would heal and cease,’ she stated.
In every state in the United States, abortion is lawful if it is deemed medically necessary to save the mother’s life.
Placental abruption is a rare but fatal pregnancy condition that can kill both the mother and the unborn child.
It includes the placenta detaching from the uterus, cutting off the fetus’s supply of essential nutrients and oxygen, and causing significant, life-threatening bleeding in the mother.
Teigen, writing at the time in a Medium piece, pleaded for other women who experience the issue to share their experiences.
The toughest part is knowing that so many women will never experience these quiet moments of happiness from strangers.
Please share your experiences and be kind to people who are pouring out their souls.
Chrissy is currently pregnant with the fourth child she and John will have.
