Chrissy Teigen recently opened up about her painful 2020 miscarriage, as Roe v. Restrictive abortion laws are being instituted across the country in the wake of overturning Wade. as a 36 year old Ambition The author reveals, the process of delivering her tragically dead son Jack—who would have been her third child with husband John Legend—was actually a life-saving abortion procedure.
And now, for some reason, Ted Cruz, of all people, has decided to give his views on the subject, despite the fact that he’s neither Chrissy Teigen’s doctor, nor any kind of medical authority.
Cruz discusses Teigen’s admission during her latest Judgment with Ted Cruz podcast. It’s not clear why a United States senator needs a podcast in the first place, or why anyone needs to listen to a Ted Cruz wax poetic about anything other than canned soup, but he commented.
“If there’s a medical procedure in that context, it’s not an abortion,” Cruz said. “And it’s the law in all 50 states and all 50 states should have a law that doctors can intervene to save the mother’s life, even if it means tragically losing the child.”
“There is no one, not even the strongest pro-life supporter – no one argues that when a woman’s life is in danger, you can’t take extraordinary medical steps to save a mother’s life.” are,” he continued. “And so, under those circumstances, she might want to characterize it as abortion in this political context, but she described it as an abortion at the time, and it certainly seems like that was an accurate description. “
Sure Ted, no one argues that—except for all those non-choice anti-Semitic advocates who came out of the woodwork to tell Teigen that he should have died Instead of saving your life from an unviable pregnancy. Not to mention, women are currently being denied life-saving procedures across the country because doctors literally fear going to jail. And Texas, Cruz’s home state, has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the United States.
Teigen made her remarks while speaking at the A Day of Unremarkable Conversation Summit earlier this month.
“Two years ago, when I was pregnant with Jack, John, and my third child, I had to make very difficult and heartbreaking decisions,” Teigen said while speaking at a panel. “It became very clear about halfway through that he wouldn’t survive, and that I wouldn’t live either without any medical intervention.”
“Let’s just call it what it was: It was a miscarriage,” she continued. “A miscarriage to save my life for a baby who had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, really, put it all together until a few months ago.
But Ted Cruz somehow knows better. Sure, Ted.
