Helen Zille slammed for tweet about Meghan Markle miscarriage

DA federal council chairperson Helen Zille has again caused a stir on social media after commenting on a tweet criticizing Meghan Markle for opening up about her miscarriage.

Meghan revealed she suffered a miscarriage in July this year, writing in The New York Times last Wednesday of the deep grief and loss she endured with her husband Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex, who married the British prince in 2018, had the couple’s first child, Archie, the following year.

In the piece in The New York Times, she wrote that she had just changed her son’s diaper when she felt a sharp cramp and fell to the ground.

“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” Markle wrote.

Writing of the “unbearable grief” of miscarrying, Markle said it was a conversation that remained “taboo, riddled with [unwarranted] shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning”.

Responding to the article, Spiked Online quoted its editor, Brendan O’Neill, as saying in an opinion piece: “Do we really need to know about Meghan Markle’s miscarriage? Some experiences, especially painful ones, should be kept private. The trend of emotional exhibitionism, where we’re all encouraged to publicise our pain, benefits nobody.”
