Every person that Biden has appointed seems to be ultra-liberal. And, they’ve insisted on changing terms so that they can push their agendas.
The Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary is no different. Xavier Becerra has decided to use the term “birthing people” so that they don’t offend anyone.
What has the world come to?
Birthing people sounds more offensive – and as Republican Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma has explained, there’s really no need to use such a term. After all, “mom” or “mother” has been a word used for decades – and it’s worked really well.
The Senator has said that “science is clear that women give birth.”
No matter how hard HHS wants to focus on inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community, Lankford is right. Science has been abundantly clear that only women are capable of giving birth to a child. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about offending people. Science doesn’t lie.
According to the President’s proposed budget, anything focused on maternal health references “birthing people.”
SEN. LANKFORD: “Can you help me get a good definition of ‘birthing people?'”
BECERRA: “We’re trying to be precise in the language that’s used.”
Lankford decided to question Becerra about the term since it’s abundant throughout the new budget work. At the Senate Finance Committee hearing, Lankford pointed out that the term “mother” has been shifted to “birthing people.” He asked Becerra to provide a good definition of “birthing people.”
Becerra, with a straight face, explained that HHS is “trying to be precise in the language that’s used.”
Precise? In what world is “birthing people” a way to be more precise. After all, since only women have uteruses, it’s clear that there’s only one gender that can possibly be birthing a child.
Lankford responded to the “precise” comment that “Mom is a pretty good word. That’s worked for a while.”
Essentially, there’s a need to know why there’s suddenly a push for changing the word. Has anyone ever been offended by the use of the word “mother?”
Becerra seemed to struggle to offer up any kind of definition. Instead, he said that he’d check on the language. The HHS Secretary stuttered on about talking about those who give birth and that he doesn’t know how else to explain it.
Well, if the person who chose the word can’t explain the reason, that’s a big problem.
Lankford pressed on to say that language is important. He asked Becerra to admit that calling a mom a “birthing person” could be offensive. After all, no one wants to receive a card in May that says, “Happy Birthing Person’s Day.”
The HHS Secretary was quick to decline any kind of admission by saying that he, once again, would look at the terminology that was used.
Shalanda Young, the Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget decided to defend the term that’s being used. She explained that not everyone has specific gender identities that apply to females and males. She believes that the “language needs to be more inclusive on how we deal with complex issues.”
This sounds like a group of ultra-liberals creating a problem where there is no problem. They want to redefine every word so that they don’t offend a handful of people.
How many women give birth to children every day that want to be called “mother?” Millions.
Now, how many “people” give birth to children who are offended by the term “mother?” We’re waiting on a real number, but it’s got to be infinitely smaller than the first group.
Yet, in Biden’s America, we’ll offend the masses so as not to offend the LGBTQ+ community who can’t decide what gender they are and whether they’re okay with being referred to as a mother.
What’s next? Will the terms of “mother” and “father” be outlawed because they, too, are offensive?
The HHS and the government as a whole have to stop working to be so inclusive. Sometimes, the best term is one that we’ve been using for a long time. Mothers give birth. It has nothing to do with gender and everything to do with science.
