Congressional Democrats are seeking to enshrine federal abortion rights not just for women who identify as women, but also for transgender men and others.
- “This act is intended to protect all people with the capacity for pregnancy — cisgender women, transgender men, non-binary individuals, those who identify with a different gender, and others — who are unjustly harmed by restrictions on abortion services,” the text of the bill reads.
The September 1. cover of the Lancet, a leading U.K.-based medical journal, featured a quotation describing biological women as “bodies with vaginas.”
