In Stunning Move, Cori Bush Manages to Cancel Women With Just Two Words (Watch)

One set of new rules Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) implemented at the start of the 117th Congress revolved around making the U.S. House a more “gender-neutral” place for new members.


In a statement at the time, Pelosi boasted about how the rules package would “honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral.”

What this meant was that terms like “father” and “mother” would bizarrely be viewed as exclusionary and therefore frowned upon if used, although not banned outright:

Fast forward a few months to today, where freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-Mo.) put those rules into action during a House Oversight Committee hearing on “Birthing While Black.” During her testimony, Bush described her pregnancy experiences and how her doctors didn’t take her health concerns seriously, which she believes happened because she’s black. But it was how she referred to black mothers as “birthing people” that got more attention:


Bush effectively canceling women with her gender-neutral phrasing while discussing an important issue that is intrinsically women-centric like pregnancy and childbirth understandably did not sit well with some folks:

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), another first-term Congresswoman, also weighed in and called the absurdity for what it was:

Predictably, the pro-abortion group NARAL rushed to Bush’s defense like the good little “feminist” sellouts they are:


No, no, no. That is not – I repeat – not how any of this works, y’all. Remember, we must trust the science, right?

To make matters worse, Bush’s ridiculous comment detracted from what was actually a pretty chilling story about how either she or her unborn babies could have died because her doctors weren’t listening to her:

Bush’s story is a pro-life story as much as it is a racial story if what she says about her doctors’ treatment of her is accurate. But she takes away from her important message about respecting pregnant black women’s voices when she diminishes them as not mothers but “people” as though anyone else but a woman who is born a woman can get pregnant and give birth.

Sadly, not only is she far from the only Democratic woman in the House to use the term “birthing people” to describe mothers, the media has gotten in on the action as well:


That said, let’s thank God that President Biden hasn’t allowed the radical leftists who are pulling his strings to convince him that we should call “Mother’s Day” something like “Birthing People’s Day” instead. Then again, I wouldn’t put it past him, because we are living in some incredibly stupid times.

Update: Total shocker that Twitter is going along with this insanity:
