During a Congressional Oversight Committee hearing, freshman Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), one of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsed candidates, refused to use the term “woman,” instead, opting to call mothers “birthing people” during the meeting.

“Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain,” she tweeted with a video of her remarks. “My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic. I testified about my experience @OversightDems today. Hear us. Believe us. Because for so long, nobody has.”

Life News reports, “Bush’s omission of the word ‘woman’ reflects Democratic efforts to ‘honor all gender identities.’ Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Massachusetts Rep. James McGovern announced a resolution in January to modify pronouns in the House rules for references to family relations, such as father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister.” 

NARAL, a radical anti-life group that wants abortion up-to-birth on-demand commented on Bush’s remarks, writing, “When we talk about birthing people, we’re being inclusive. It’s that simple. We use gender neutral language when talking about pregnancy, because it’s not just cis-gender women that can get pregnant and give birth. Reproductive freedom is for *every* body.”

Even if we WERE inclined to kill ya, we couldn’t keep up with the so-called birthing people who prefer stillborn black children to viable live-births. Over 50% of pre-born black kids are parted out for fun and profit by the abortion industry, with black women’s blessings!

Actually “Y’all” do the killing. It is called abortion. Nobody twists your arm to do it either.

How long before they incriminate themselves. What about all the babies killed by their birthing people? Is that not just as tragic?
