The transgender agenda in the United Kingdom has taken its fight to the United Nations over the phrase “pregnant women” which has been used in the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights since 1976. The “offending” portion of the treaty says “pregnant women” must be protected and not be subject to the death penalty.
What do they suggest? They want it amended to say “pregnant people” because transgender “men” can become pregnant as well.
Outrage from feminists
Members of the worldwide feminist movement are calling the U.K. out over this.
“This isn’t inclusion. This is making women unmentionable,” said feminist author Sarah Ditum. “Having a female body and knowing what that means for reproduction doesn’t make you ‘exclusionary.’ Forcing us to decorously scrub out any reference to our sex on pain of being called bigots is an insult.”
The differences between men and women should be celebrated, not blurred. How a person identifies does not change their biology. If someone is pregnant, they are biologically a woman. The U.K.’s attempt to “protect” transgender people is an insult to feminists who have fought for decades to actually protect women regardless of their gender identity.
Political correctness run amok
This has nothing to do with actually attempting to protect transgender people. It’s all about empowering a narrative and pushing a new brand of political correctness that obscures serious problems by making the feelings of a few people more important than the safety of the masses.
Women, regardless of their gender identity, are being victimized around the world. Changing the verbiage of this treaty is not intended to improve protections but to make a mockery of them. Those in the U.K. and around the world who think this proposed change is righteous clearly have zero understanding of real problems faced by actual females in harms way. They’re putting their transgender agenda ahead of the safety and security of women. For this, they should be condemned.
The UN treaty says a “pregnant woman” must be protected, including not being subject to the death penalty.
In the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) submission, Britain opposes the term “pregnant woman” because it may “exclude transgender people who have given birth”.

Women around the world experience gender-based violence at incredible rates. According to the United Nations’ own numbers, 35% of women worldwide have experienced some form of sexual violence; 750 million women and girls were married before their 18th birthday; 120 million girls were raped before they were 18; 200 million have experienced female genital mutilation; and women and girls account for more than 71% of humans trafficked across the globe.
The government has said the term “pregnant woman” should not be used in a UN treaty because it “excludes” transgender people.
Feminists reacted with outrage to what they said was the latest example of “making women unmentionable” in the name of transgender equality.
