The CDC is stepping up its efforts to get pregnant women vaccinated – only, they aren’t using the word “women” at all. It’s another example of woke messaging in medicine.
“Pregnancy can be both a special time and also a stressful time – and pregnancy during a pandemic is an added concern for families. I strongly encourage those who are pregnant or considering pregnancy to talk with their healthcare provider about the protective benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine to keep their babies and themselves safe,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
When The Hill tweeted about the story, it read “CDC issues urgent advisory “strongly” encouraging pregnant people to get COVID-19 vaccine.”
The Hill’s write up of the story refuses to refer to “women” in any way.
“The CDC only last month officially recommended the vaccine for people who are pregnant or lactating, but has tried to make it clear that the benefits for both pregnant persons and their fetus or infant outweigh known or potential risks.”
“Pregnant persons?” “People who are pregnant?”
Dana Loesch shared her thoughts on Twitter saying, “Pregnant people.” So much for following the science. The word is “women.” Stop the sexism.
