Singer, John Legend, has spoken out about the importance of IVF and protecting reproductive rights in the Trump era.
“Having control over reproduction is one of the most important rights a woman has,” Legend recently told Newsweek Europe.
The singer and his wife Chrissy Teigen have spoken openly about their fertility struggles and their joy at the birth of nine-month-old daughter Luna, born through IVF.
In the Newsweek interview, Legend expressed his fear that women’s reproductive rights could be under threat.
“Choosing when you want to have a child or not affects so much of your life and your body,” he said.
“There are some people that want to take away that right, particularly our Vice President Mike Pence, enabled by President Trump.
“This is a time for us to be worried about women having their full reproductive rights.”
In the interview, Legend encouraged anyone struggling with fertility to consider IVF.
“We’re glad we had Luna the way we did, and hopefully we’ll have a few more kids through IVF.”
