CDC gets Florida’s numbers wrong and calls pregnant women pregnant people, but absolutely trust them on the science!— Lisa Boothe (@LisaMarieBoothe) August 12, 2021
Every single “pregnant person” is a woman. Always, forever, and unconditionally. I’m not playing along.— Allie Beth Stuckey (@conservmillen) August 12, 2021
I’m a man. When I become a pregnant person, I’ll get vaccinated.— Piraeus (@odinsaga) August 12, 2021
If the powerful lobby pushing this really wanted to be inclusive they would say: "Pregnant women, and pregnant nonbinary and transgender people..." But instead, they delete and erase the word "woman" from pregnancy, which dehumanizes women. It is anti-woman hate speech.— Terri (@soulmeaning) August 12, 2021
