National Education Association Pushes to Replace Word 'Mother' with 'Birthing Parent'
Leftists trying public’s perception of what defines a woman.
The Biden administration and liberal groups across the country are pushing to replace the word "mother" from their vocabulary to appease the transgender community, which equates to just 1.6% of U.S. adults.
The country’s largest labor union - The National Education Association - proposed a resolution that would change the word "mother" in contracts to "birthing parent."
The purpose of such a move is to be inclusive of the LGBTQIA+ community.
"Using this contract language, members need not worry about how a Board of Education/solicitor defines ‘maternity leave,’ ‘mother,' and/or ‘father’; the language is an inclusive reflection of how LGBTQIA+ members build families," the proposed resolution said.
The news is the latest effort leftists are using to change the public’s perception of what defines a woman.
In the 2022 fiscal year budget year, the Biden administration replaced the word "mothers" to "birthing people" but kept the word "maternal," which is defined as relating to a mother.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer referred to "menstruating people" instead of women while discussing he state’s efforts to protect abortion rights ahead of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Meanwhile, the chief medical officer at the New York City Department of Health was forced to apologize when she used the term "birthing people" for white people but "mothers" for people of color.
A state DOH spokesperson later suggested that "mother" should not have been used at all, adding "we apologize for inadvertently gendering Black and Puerto Rican birthing people."
Now-Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson famously declined to define the word "woman" during her confirmation hearings, declaring, "I'm not a biologist."
Last year, far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended her use of the term "menstruating person."
She tweeted, "GOP mad at this are protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders."
Not just women! Trans men & non-binary people can also menstruate.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) September 8, 2021
Some women also *don’t* menstruate for many reasons, including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy.

That same month, the ACLU faced controversy for altering an iconic quote from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to replace "woman" with "person."

The organization later apologized.
In May of last year, Missouri Rep. Cori Bush referred to mothers as "birthing people" during a Democratic oversight committee hearing and on Twitter.
Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic.— Congresswoman Cori Bush (@RepCori) May 6, 2021
