Her pregnancy, her choice.

Chrissy Teigen recently revealed that she and her husband, human dreamboat John Legend, chose a female embryo during the IVF process. In other words, they made a decision about their future that's 100 percent their business, and the internet promptly did what it does best: threw a collective, Kanye West-style meltdown.

Chrissy was accused of "playing god" with her pregnancy (not to be a bummer, but this is the same argument anti-abortion advocates use...not a good look), and hopped on Twitter to defend herself. 

To echo Chrissy's thoughts, the IVF process is extremely complicated, and more importantly private. Yeah, she chose to speak publicly, but not quite sure that's an excuse to use the term "science baby" in any other context than watching NOVA all, "science, baby!"
