Jaylen Cavil of the Des Moines Black Lives Matter movement testified yesterday before the Iowa Senate subcommittee hearing on the Life Amendment. He launched right into his opposition:
“I’ll start my comments first by publicly apologizing on behalf of every man who spoke on this call in support of this bill who will never be pregnant in their life,” he said.
Whoa. Whoa. Did he just assume the gender of every person he perceived to be a man before him?
I wasn’t aware as a society we were able to do such a thing anymore.
And is Jaylen suggesting that only women can become pregnant?
I mean, I’ve seen the headlines…
“The dad who gave birth.”
“Trans dads tell doctors: ‘You can be a man and have a baby.”
“How transgender men can get pregnant.”
Jaylen is clearly on the wrong side of history if he believes only women can be pregnant. That idea may be the most bigoted idea of 2021. It is so old-fashioned and so backward.
And it flies in the face of liberal progressivism.
On a more serious note, Jaylen, perhaps you should’ve apologized on behalf of every person already been born who spoke during the call and will never be aborted in their lifetime.
Easy to argue for abortion when you are already out of the womb.
His suggestion of banning Republicans from Iowa is just a line of agitation thrown in to receive notoriety. So, congrats. It worked.
