For two years of COVID craziness, we were told by the Left to “trust the science.” At the same time, the Left was pushing biological men into women’s sports. They were pushing preferred pronouns on preschool students.

And now, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Iowa writes that people of “all genders have abortions.”

All genders.

Not both.

All. Genders. All of them.

“Trans men, nonbinary and genderqueer patients continue pregnancies, use birth control and decide to have children (or not) just like anyone else would,” Planned Parenthood Advocates of Iowa wrote. “Members of the transgender and nonbinary community also face additional barriers to accessing safe and reliable health care, especially reproductive health care.”

Among those who have “liked” the post proclaiming people of all genders have abortions? Iowa House Democrats.

Here is what an associate medical director at a Planned Parenthood location called Natalie Hinchcliffe said:

“Abortion is an issue for all people capable of pregnancy, for their partners, their families, and their communities. Transgender men, nonbinary and gender queer people assigned female at birth do seek abortion services. Excluding them perpetuates the idea that abortion is a “cis” women’s health issue. This moves further from the very important conversation about how abortion effects cisgender men, families, geographic communities, as well as the LGBTQ+ community.”

If you are looking for tips for gender inclusivity as it relates to pregnancy, here are some from the article Planned Parenthood linked to:

  • Instead of saying ‘pregnant women’, try saying – ‘pregnant people’
  • Instead of saying ‘women’s healthcare’, try saying – ‘reproductive healthcare’
  • Instead of the assumed use of pronouns, try – ‘they/them/theirs’ until the correct pronouns are established
