…and these are the people we’re supposed to take advice from about how to handle COVID-19?
I think the CDC is on to something, then! Heck, I may as well start asking my daughter’s talking stuffed bear about important financial decisions.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky is the Director of Centers for Disease Control and, in an effort to share dialogue regarding the coronavirus vaccine clinical trials, she decided to use gender-neutral language specifically to refer to pregnant women as ‘pregnant people.’
“Clinical trials of COVID-19 vaccines did not include pregnant people, leaving us with limited data on the safety of vaccination in pregnant people and babies to date,” she said.
Walensky said the CDC monitored over 35,000 “pregnant people” after they were vaccinated to look for side effects of the coronavirus vaccine.
“People experienced the same side effects as others following vaccination,” she said.
“CDC recommends that pregnant people receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” she said. “We know that this is a deeply personal decision, and I encourage people to talk to their doctors or primary care providers to determine what is best for them and for their baby.”
Talk about enforcing an indoctrination that strips people of their individuality, their biological reality, and scientific truth in an effort to gain more power.
Women and men being different is a scientific fact, not a social construct.
