In her speech before Congress on Thursday, Congresswoman Cori Bush referred to mothers as ‘birthing people’.

Bush was testifying at a House Oversight hearing on health risks faced by Black mothers.

Not surprisingly she drew condemnation from many, including Fox News’ Tucker Carlson who mockingly said that ‘mother has been banned’ because the term was ‘too sexist’. 

The Mail Online reports: The representative for Missouri told the harrowing story of how she was ignored by doctors when she told them of the extreme pain she was in, early in her pregnancy with both her children.

She said her concerns were dismissed, and both her children – her son Zion, now 21, and daughter Angel, now 20 – were born extremely premature

‘I sit before you today as a single mom, as a nurse, as an activist, congresswoman, and I am committed to doing the absolute most to protect black mothers, to protect black babies, to protect black birthing people, and to save lives.’

‘Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain,’ she tweeted later on Thursday. 

‘My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic. I testified about my experience today. 

‘Hear us. Believe us. Because for so long, nobody has.’

Bush’s terminology was immediately seized on. 

Nancy Mace, a South Carolina congresswoman, tweeted: ‘“Birthing people” – you mean women or moms? 

‘The left is so woke they’re stripping from women the one thing that only we can do.’ 

Steve Cortes, a former Trump advisor, questioned whether Mother’s Day will get a new title.

‘”Birthing people.” This upcoming Sunday is no longer Mothers Day, it’s Birthing Peoples’ Day,’ he said. 

Carlson ridiculed her on Friday night, saying it was ‘dehumanizing’.

He said she was ‘referring to black birthing people – in other words, mothers.’

  1. I oversee a vape store directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the United States that likewise markets CBD products. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory. We do not sell CBD items such as CBD oil. We only provide marketing and advertising solutions to CBD companies. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will witness that they offer for sale a comparatively comprehensive stable of CBD products, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It appears that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to different firms. Due to this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment choices and currently, I am seriously dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have checked with a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is completely unlawful and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform criterion to all firms. I am still to speak to an additional attorney from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
