Chrissy spoke about the life-saving abortion she had in an interview with THR.
Devastating: It comes after Chrissy opened up about having a life-saving abortion – after doctors said in September 2020 her unborn son Jack was not viable
Family: John and Chrissy share daughter Luna Simone, six, and son Miles Theodore, four; seen the family in april
Proud father: Legend shared a photo of Miles and Luna on his Instagram account on Tuesday evening
“Let’s just call it what it was: it was an abortion,” Chrissy said. “An abortion to save my life for a baby who had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never really put that together until a few months ago.’
The couple had said that Jack died as a result of complications caused by partial placental abruption, which is when the placenta detaches from the uterus, depriving the baby of oxygen and bleeding profusely from the mother.
She spoke candidly about accepting her abortion in 2020 as she appeared 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.”

Seeing it in a new light: Though she’s long considered Jack’s death a miscarriage, Chrissy said it was her husband John who helped her realize she’d actually had an abortion (September 2022 photo)
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.
The couple share daughter Luna Simone, six, and son Miles Theodore, four.
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, leaving 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.
