Britney Spears announces miscarriage of her ‘Miracle Baby’

Pop singer Britney Spears announced the miscarriage of her “miracle baby” on Saturday, a tragic end to what originally appeared to be her triumph over the fall of her father’s guardianship.

In her Instagram post on Saturday, Spears said in a joint statement with her fiancé, Sam Asghari, that it is “our deepest sadness” to announce the unfortunate miscarriage.

“It is with our deepest sadness that we announce that we lost our miracle baby early in our pregnancy,” the statement read.

“This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along, but we were very excited to share the good news,” the statement added. “Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue to try to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult time.”

The pop singer announced her pregnancy last April in an Instagram post, which came after her father’s guardianship ended, which prevented her from reproducing, forcing her to use an IUD.

Both liberals and conservatives rallied to her cause at the time, with both sides noting that she simultaneously violated their bodily autonomy and the right to procreate. The New York Times compared such a practice to forced sterilization according to eugenics.

“Court-approved compulsory contraception is rare in guardianship. But the specter it raises – forced sterilization – has a long and dark history in the United States, especially against poor women, women of color and female prisoners. In the early 20th century, the state-sanctioned practice was upheld by the United States Supreme Court.

“Eugenics was one of the main reasons for female sterilization. In the case of 1927 Buck v. Bell, the Supreme Court upheld the right to sterilize a ‘feeble-minded’ woman who had been committed to a state mental institution, with Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes infamously writing: ‘Three generations of imbeciles is enough,’” he continued.
