Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky faced a strong social media backlash after she referred to “pregnant people” in a Twitter post on Wednesday about the COVID-19 vaccine.
“The rise in cases, vaccine hesitancy, and the increased risk of severe illness for pregnant people make vaccination against #COVID19 more urgent than ever. Read why @CDCgov recommends that pregnant people should be vaccinated against COVID-19,” Walensky tweeted.
The post’s link to the CDC website stated, “COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people aged 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future.
“Pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill with COVID-19 compared with non-pregnant people. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can protect you from severe illness from COVID-19.”
Pregnant people? Seriously? The same people recommending kids wear masks in schools are the ones telling us men and women (if there is still such a thing) can both be pregnant. Only biological females can have babies, no matter if they take testosterone and identify as male. This is about as woke as science can get.
When the government says they “follow the science” it makes you wonder what kind of science they have in mind. It sounds like the only science they are talking about is political science.
The Daily Wire’s Megan Basham rightly tweeted in response, “If you use the term ‘pregnant people’ instead of ‘pregnant women,’ why would I believe anything you have to say about ‘science’?”
Reporter Lisa Boothe added on Twitter, “CDC gets Florida’s numbers wrong and calls pregnant women pregnant people, but absolutely trust them on the science!”
By the way, the study’s findings are preliminary. Earlier vaccine warning mentioned concerns for women who were pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the future. Simply put, these vaccines are still relatively new and have not undergone the prolonged studies to truly confirm their impact on women who are pregnant, nursing, or even any conclusive evidence related to potential concerns with the ability to become pregnant.
But if we’re going to make believe anyone can get pregnant, why not just say the vaccine is 100 percent effective while we’re at it? Never mind that in the first week of NFL training camp, 32 of the 65 positive COVID tests were among vaccinated players and staff. Yes, the vaccine appears to help, but it’s also not perfect.
In addition to vaccinated people still testing positive for COVID, a lot of people have had side effects. Depending who you believe, the side effects have been pretty serious. The bottom line is that there appears to be more political science taking place at the CDC than we’ve been led to believe. Pregnant people is just one piece of the puzzle. Who knows how far the political infiltration has extended, an issue that should concern all Americans as we seek real answers regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
