Sen. Cruz (R-TX) claims Chrissy Teigen’s abortion was “not an abortion” because it was a life-of-the-mother exception.

Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican from Texas, commented on celebrity Chrissy Teigen recently coming out and saying that she recently realized she had an abortion, not a miscarriage two years ago.

CRUZ: “If there's a medical procedure in that context, it's not an abortion and and it is the law at all 50 states and it should be the law at all 50 states that that doctors can intervene to save the life of the mother, even if it means tragically losing the child. There is nobody even the, the most robust pro-life advocates, nobody argues that, that when the woman's life is in danger, that, that you can't take extraordinary medical steps to preserve the mother's life. And so, in those circumstances, she may want to characterize it as abortion in this political context but she described it at the time as as a miscarriage and and it certainly sounds like that was an accurate description.”
