Of course you can respond, just like something in your response made me want to respond. We are not far off in our views on abortion — I wouldn’t take away the choice, but I wish no one needed to make it. And my point is that along with the baby/fetus/cells dying is the hopes and plans for this planned for child dying as well. They named their child. They had visions of how it would feel to hold their child. Being pro choice means you have a choice, and their choice was to have this baby, to care for and love it. And just because they’re pro choice does not mean they won’t mourn when it dies. I could keep going, but I trust you understand how someone can be devastated when life takes an unexpected turn, and when a life they planned for is no longer a reality. It’s my belief that in a time like this, kicking someone when they’re down (and I refer to those on social media who are slamming Teigen with hate comments) is uncalled for, and that as humans, we should let her family have space to mourn.

Thanks for taking the time to respond, and I appreciate your original honest response that spurred my own response.

I’m all over the place, but I try to be honest in all of it. Find my books and musings at crissilangwell.com.
