As Twitchy reported earlier, NARAL came to the aid of Congress-birthing-person Cori Bush, explaining that using inclusive language like “birthing persons” and “pregnant people” recognizes that it’s not just cis-gender women that can get pregnant and give birth. (Remember when Speaker Nancy Pelosi made up a whole bunch of new house rules against using gender-specific language like “mother” and “sister” and then immediately broke them?)

Rep. Ayanna Pressley announced Thursday that she and Sen. Cory Booker were re-introducing legislation to help birthing people, but for some reason, they’ve decided to call it the MOMMIES Act.

Raise your hand, pregnant people, if you want community-based, holistic approaches to maternity care from the federal government.

We hate to be the ones to break it to her, but the Act is chock-full of gendered language, e.g., “The term ‘eligible individual’ means a pregnant woman or a formerly pregnant woman during the 365-day period beginning on the last day of her pregnancy.”

“Maximizing Outcomes for Moms through Medicaid Improvement and Enhancement of Services,” aka MOMMIES.

Let’s not see that, ’cause he’ll try just to prove men can.
