She said that men need to speak up in these moments and all future ones because they have the potential of affecting relationships, families and entire communities. They may be targeting women but their consequences affect all. Over the last few days, my husband and I have talked a lot about this. “He is a feminist, too.”  

Her comments included, “This is about women’s physical safety. This is also about individual freedom, economic justice and our collective identity as society. It is wrong to force anyone to make any decision, whether it’s unsafe or in their best interests.  

Meghan first shared that she had suffered a miscarriage in a powerful November 2020 New York Times piece titled “The Losses We Share.” The article was written by Meghan and focuses on her July morning with Archie, before she felt an intense cramp. 

She wrote, “I fell to the ground with him in mine arms and humming a song to calm us both. The cheerful tune was a stark contrast against my feeling that something wasn’t right.” While I was holding my firstborn, I realized that I was going to lose my second.  

Meghan described the “unbearable” grief of losing a baby as something “experienced many times but rarely talked about.”   

“Despite the commonality of our pain, the discussion remains taboo. It is riddled by shame and perpetuating a cycle solitary mourning.” she said. “In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing.”
