Several have claimed Chrissy is “lying” about her ordeal, while others say she’s “trying to stay relevant.”

Another wrote: ‘Sorry you lost your child, but stop milking this story’.

A third added: she’s such a drama queen, she needs therapy.”

According to THRChrissy confessed: “Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion. An abortion to save my life for a baby who had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, ever put that together, until a few months ago,’

The couple had previously said that Jack died due to complications caused by partial placental abruption, which is when the placenta detaches from the uterus, depriving the baby of oxygen and bleeding profusely in the mother.

Chrissy is currently pregnant with her and John’s fourth child. They share daughter Luna Simone, six, and son Miles Theodore, four.

She spoke candidly about accepting her abortion in 2020 as she appeared on Thursday at Propper Daley’s “A Day of Unreasonable Conversation” summit in Beverly Hills.

“Two years ago, when I was pregnant with Jack, John and my third child, I had to make many difficult and heartbreaking decisions,” the star began.

“Halfway through it became very clear that he wouldn’t survive, and neither would I without medical intervention.”

Though she had long considered Jack’s death a miscarriage, Chrissy said it was her husband John who helped her realize she had actually had an abortion.

The revelation came amid the shocking Supreme Court decision to undo Roe V. Wade, who protected the right to abortion, last June.

Chrissy admitted it came as a “shock” to her.

“I fell silent and felt weird that I hadn’t understood it that way. 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 got really frustrated that I didn’t say what it was in the first place, and I felt stupid that it had taken me over a year to really understand that we’d had an abortion,” she admitted.

In the final weeks of her pregnancy with Jack, Chrissy used Instagram to report on her complications.

In particular, Cravings founder was: experiencing uncontrollable bleeding. She was forced to wear adult diapers and placed on bed rest.

On September 30, 2020, Chrissy returned to the platform to report that doctors were unable to control her bleeding despite multiple blood transfusions.

“We have never been able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,” she wrote, before revealing that Jack didn’t survive.

“To our Jack—I’m so sorry that the first moments of your life were so complicated that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you,” read another part of Chrissy’s post.

Along with her heartbreaking text, Chrissy added a slideshow of black-and-white photos of herself in a hospital bed as she and John grieved their child.

One photo showed the couple crying and rocking their late son, while another saw a distraught Chrissy sitting on the edge of her hospital bed with tears streaming down her face.

Not long after, she revealed she wouldn’t be able to carry a child again, writing on Instagram: “I love being pregnant so much, and I’m sad I never will.”

In a blog post published on Medium in October 2020, Chrissy described how the partial placental abruption drastically changed the course of her pregnancy.

“By this point I had already come to terms with what would happen: I would have an epidural and be made to give birth to our 20 week old boy who would never have survived in my tummy (excuse these simple terms), ‘ she wrote.

In another clip, she recalled the moment the doctor told her that Jack would not survive and that the pregnancy also put her own life in danger.

“After a few nights in the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming — it was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either.’

In honor of Jack, Chrissy and John planted a tree in their house for him in Thai tradition.

“In Thai tradition, it’s important to us that we always embrace those we’ve lost, and they’re never, ever gone.

“This tree being planted in the house, the whole reason I wanted it was that Jack’s ashes could be in that ground and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves in this tree,” she said. .

Earlier this year, Chrissy informed fans that she was undergoing IVF treatment, despite previously claiming she would no longer be able to conceive.

She completed treatment in March, and in August the couple confirmed they were expecting their fourth child together.

Why abortions can be life-saving

Abortions are usually performed because women don’t want a baby, either because their pregnancy was unplanned or unwanted.

They are different from miscarriages, which are unintentional and occur during the first 23 weeks of pregnancy.

In some cases, however, abortions are an emergency procedure necessary to save the mother’s life.

In England, Scotland and Wales, where a woman’s life is in danger or the baby has a serious disability, there is no time limit for access to abortion under the Abortion Act of 1967.

Conditions that may qualify include serious infections and severe cases of preeclampsia, in which a woman develops very high blood pressure and is at risk of stroke.

Another reason why it may be necessary is for placental abruption, which is when the placenta detaches from the uterus depriving the baby of oxygen and bleeding profusely in the mother.

But under the same law, if there is no risk, women can only legally terminate a pregnancy up to 23 weeks.

The abortion is considered legal if it is performed by a doctor, authorized by two doctors acting ‘in good faith’, and meets at least one qualifying factor.

In the US, the picture is different after the landmark Supreme Court decision to overturn the Roe v Wade ruling.

That highly controversial move ended the legal right of American women to have abortions and left it to individual states to decide whether they are legal.

Two dozen conservative states have already introduced or are expected to introduce new abortion restrictions or bans.

This includes Georgia, which bans abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy — before many women even know they’re pregnant.
