'The government should not be involved.' John Legend speaks out on abortion rights

Just over a month after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Guadare, il musicista John Legend sostiene l'accesso all'aborto e i diritti riproduttivi.

In an interview with David Axelrod for CNN “I file dell'ascia” podcast, Legend described his own experience with moglie, model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen’s 2020 aborto spontaneo.
Anyone who’s dealt with pregnancy knows none of this is casual, none of this is frivolous. And it’s so intimate, and it’s so personal,” Egli ha detto. “Why do we want our government involved in those decisions?”
    Legend referenced strict abortion restrictions in certain states that have led to limits on patients’ capacità di access standard miscarriage care. One woman in Texas, per esempio, was forced to carry fetal remains inside her for two and a half weeks after miscarrying last year because of strict anti-abortion laws.
      Anyone who has a miscarriage, after all that trauma, all that pain, all those tears we went through, to then have the local DA or local law enforcement do an investigation and make sure the miscarriage was approved by the stateto have the government involved in that conversation in any way is so offensive to me,” Egli ha detto.
        Teigen and Legend announced that they had lost their child after pregnancy complications in 2020. Teigen had been about halfway through with her pregnancy with the couple’s third child, whom they had started calling Jack. Teigen was vocal about the difficulties of her miscarriage, e ha scritto an emotional essay about the traumatic loss.
        The two are parents to Luna and Miles, both conceived through IVF, and announced on Wednesday that they are expecting another child.
          Government involvement in reproductive rights is “cattiva, it’s evil. It should not be even a discussion. The government should not be involved,” Legend said.
            In his interview with Axelrod, Legend emphasized the devastating experiences of patients who undergo late-term abortions. “Anyone who makes that gut-wrenching decision at that point in the pregnancy, they’re only doing it because they have a serious reason to do it, whether it’s the health of the mother or the health of the child,” Egli ha detto.
            The star hopes he can use his platform to advocate for change. “I’ve grown over time in understanding how to use my celebrity and how to use the power that I have and the reach that I have and the resources that I have to actually make change.
