The executive director of a pro-abortion nonprofit organization, Avow Texas, Aimee Arrambide, testified in front of Congress that men can get pregnant and have abortions.
This is the continuation of progressives’ narrative that men can identify as women.
Men Can Get Pregnant and Have Abortions?
While Arrambide was testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Dan Bishop asked her what her definition of “woman” was.
Responding to this, she stated everyone could “identify themselves,” as per the choice.
On this, Bishop asked her if she believed men could get pregnant and have abortions performed on their bodies. Bishop abruptly replied, “yes.”
These comments of Arrambide made Bishop surprised. He asked the definition of “woman” from another Democrat witness, Dr. Yashica Robinson. Bishop asked her as a medical doctor, how she defines a woman.
Robinson responded it was time to explain to people why she and her like-minded people support the things they do.

She explained the logic of using she/her pronouns, claiming she was referring to those people who do not identify as being women, but still end up getting pregnant.
So, it is “discriminatory” to call such people women when they themselves do not want to be called this. Bishop pushed back, asking her again how she defines a woman.
She replied if anybody intentionally uses she/her pronouns, then “she” is a woman.
Progressives Eliminating Gender Identity Gaps
While defending her definition of a woman, Robinson claimed it is important to focus on things like access to abortion.
The hearing titled, “Revoking Your Rights,” was focused on addressing the issues which women may face after the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade, as suggested by the leaked documents.
The issue of gender identity is gaining ground across the United States; progressives are championing the cause.
Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, was also asked to define “woman” by GOP Senator Marsha Blackburn during her hearing. Jackson replied she was “not a biologist.”
On this, Blackburn noted the fact that a nominee for the top court is unable to define a simple term like woman proves American institutions are being filled by so many progressive people.
Many far-left analysts and scientists commended Jackson’s remarks. The Biden administration is working to teach the controversial concept of gender identity to children as young as seven years old.

The issue became relevant in American politics after transgender Lia Thomas won a women’s swimming title.
This led many red states to protect women’s sports, as Republicans believe the inclusion of transgender women in biological women’s sports would give them an unfair physical advantage.
However, Democrats backed transgenders’ inclusion, claiming that they do not have an unfair advantage in the women’s games.
