“Teen Mom” Rachel Beaver shared an Instagram post about a miscarriage she suffered in 2019. Beaver was inspired to write her post after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the historic Roe v. Wade decision on June 24, meaning there is no longer a federal constitutional right to abortion.
Beaver, 20, posted a picture of a sonogram and remembered when she lost her child.
“I was 17 years old on September 13, 2019, when I lost my baby… I will never forget feeling the most pain in my life as I watched my baby flatline right in front of my eyes,” she said. “The doctors at the time thought it was best I get a D&E… a procedure they use for abortions as well.”
Beaver’s co-star Kayla Sessler praised the post. “👏👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌 very well said . And I’m so sorry for your loss,” she wrote on Instagram.
Beaver Said She Wants to Help People
Beaver maintained that abortions were a fundamental right for women.
“When you’re sitting here supporting & justifying this decision that was made yesterday realize abortion procedures are necessary for health care,” she said.
Beaver talked about how pregnancy can affect a person’s mental health. “& let’s talk about mental health , women that cannot mentally handle not only having a baby but being pregnant as well,” she said. “& rape victims of friends, random people, even family members!”
The “Teen Mom” star finished her post by writing, “MY BODY, MY CHOICE.”
“With this all being said , the supreme court yesterday decided to not only take away our rights as women but take away our healthcare ensuring we are even safe,” she said at last. “If anyone woman out there needs help & I can somehow be here for you pls message me. 🤍 I will do everything I can & we will not be silenced!!!”
Fans Praised Beaver For Her Post
Fans on Reddit took a screenshot of Beaver’s Instagram post and shared it on the forum, where a majority of social media users said they were impressed with Beaver’s message.
“Wow she’s really come along way from the woman we saw on tv saying she didn’t think her doctor knew about birth control,” one person wrote.
“Love this. I can understand 100% what she’s saying and she’s right,” another fan said.
“I love it ! 🤍,” a third person added.
Beaver is the mother of 3-year-old Hazlee, who she shares with her ex-boyfriend, Drew Brooks. The season 4 trailer of “Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant” teased some drama between Brooks and Beaver after he was released from prison.
Brooks was arrested and charged with attempted murder on April 6, 2022. He was accused of stabbing Kodie Mason in the “lower left stomach area” on April 3, 2022, according to a Probable Cause Affidavit obtained by Law&Crime.
Brooks was arrested the month before for unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon, but due to a lack of evidence, the charges were dismissed, In Touch Weekly reported.
According to the Monroe County circuit court docket, Brooks’ arrest record dates back to 2018.
Season 4 of “Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant“ is slated to debut Tuesday, June 28 on MTV.
