Radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has fired back at people who argue that men cannot get pregnant by suggesting that they also believe that “climate change isn’t real.”
On Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez erupted during a House hearing when a Republican member stated that biological males cannot get pregnant.
The dispute came up during a House Oversight Committee hearing about abortion.
During the same hearing, AOC also claimed that abortion was an economic issue because parents are effectively “conscripted” to work against their will if women are not allowed to have an abortion.
Planned Parenthood Dr. Bhavik Kumar claimed in response to a question from Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) that “men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”
“Somebody with a uterus may have the capability of becoming pregnant, whether they’re a woman or a man,” Kumar claimed.
“That doesn’t make a difference.”
“OK, we’re done,” Clyde replied.
“Not every person with a uterus has the ability to become pregnant,” Kumar said.
“This is medicine.”
Clyde fired by at the “woke” so-called expert the Democrats had brought into the hearing.
“I can’t believe it’s necessary to say this, but men cannot get pregnant and cannot give birth, regardless of how they identify themselves,” Clyde said.
“Why in the world would Democrats have brought in a person whose title is ‘director of trans care’ for an abortion hearing when only biological women can become pregnant?”
AOC lashed out over Clyde’s response, claiming: “The same folks who … told us that COVID’s just a flu, that climate change isn’t real, that January 6 was nothing but a tourist visit … are now trying to tell us that transgender people are not real.”
“And I would say that their claim is probably just as legitimate as all their others, which is to say not very much at all,” she claimed.
