Chrissy Teigen plays victim after sudden relabeling of her miscarriage to an ‘abortion’ does not go well

Drama follows Chrissy Teigen like an imprinted baby duckling, and after she shared the details of the death of her unborn son, Jack, the actress was once again forced to fend off “brutal” comments from haters who claim she is “milking” the story and “needs therapy.”

The controversy started after Teigen described at Propper Daley’s “A Day of Unreasonable Conversation” summit the “difficult decision” she had to make 20 weeks into her pregnancy with Jack.

“Two years ago, when I was pregnant with Jack, John and my third child, I had to make a lot of difficult and heartbreaking decisions. It became very clear around halfway through that he would not survive, and that I wouldn’t either without any medical intervention,” she told the social impact crowd, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mother and child had suffered a placenta abruption, necessitating the termination of a pregnancy Jack was never going to survive.

Now, most would call this tragic development either a “miscarriage” or a “spontaneous abortion,” but Teigen was talking at an invite-only event called “We Made That Choice,” so, after telling “the world” she’d had a miscarriage in September 2020, it was now okay to “call it what it was.”

“Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion,” she told the pro-choice group. “An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, ever put that together until, actually, a few months ago.”

It was the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade that brought the whole ordeal into focus.

While telling her uber-woke husband how full of sympathy she was for the emotional decisions and terrible circumstances people who choose to abort their babies experience, Legend let her know that she, herself, was one of those very people.

“I fell silent, feeling weird that I hadn’t made sense of it that way,” Teigen revealed. “I told the world we had a miscarriage, the world agreed we had a miscarriage, all the headlines said it was a miscarriage. And I became really frustrated that I didn’t, in the first place, say what it was, and I felt silly that it had taken me over a year to actually understand that we had had an abortion.”

Of course, it’s a sad story. Of course, losing Jack must have been traumatic.

And of course, ending a pregnancy that wasn’t viable to save the life of the mother is a medical exception that has been made in every single state that has implemented strict abortion restrictions since the Supreme Court returned to them their rightful power to do it.

Equating her ordeal with a mother who chooses to kill her perfectly healthy baby because she can’t be bothered to take responsibility for it is, in any sane circles, a non-starter, unless you are pandering to a crowd that will applaud you for doing it.

And, for the most part, that’s what all the “brutal” haters Teigen complained about on Twitter were noting.

“Someone is trying to stay relevant, I can see,” wrote one critic.

“Nobody cares,” said another.

“Sounds like it was a miscarriage but she wants to stay relevent AND they’re using her story to fit their narrative,” a third replied. “At the end of the day, idgaf.”

And a fourth user stated, “Sorry you lost your child but stop milking that story.”

And according to yet another detractor, “She needs therapy.”

“I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst so if this makes you feel better, great,” lamented Teigen on Twitter. “It doesn’t make me feel worse though.”

“This isn’t like, the daily mail or something btw,” she added in a follow-up tweet. “It’s the glamour magazine comment thread! Brutal!”

Never fear for Chrissy, though.

Dozens of tiny Twitter accounts assured the actress that people are awful and she is a queen… and none of them were tackles enough to tell her that, in a scary world that has overturned Roe v. Wade, she would have received exactly the same care she got two long years ago.
