Fertility Diary: Chrissy Teigen’s Abortion Story Made Me Feel Less Alone

Chrissy Teigen recently spoke out about being in a similar situation. She had no choice but to have a technical abortion for her health, though she thought of it as a miscarriage at the time. “Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion,” she said recently. “An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance.” I was so appreciative of what she shared. Abortion is such a complicated issue, and there are so many people who have them for so many reasons. It’s not talked about enough. In fact, I spoke to my mom about the subject, and she was like, “Oh yeah, I had four miscarriages before you.” I didn’t know that before. Now, with the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, if what had happened to me then happened now and if I lived in another state, I would have been even more terrified. It would be another level of anxiety on top of everything. With my history, I would also be scared to try to conceive again.
