Here in Pennsylvania, the Woman’s Medical Fund provides financial aid to people who want to have an abortion. Cool.
They have just renamed themselves the Abortion Liberation Fund of Pennsylvania. OK, I can dig it.
But why the name change? For inclusivity.
“We worry that if somebody is trans or gender-nonconforming and they get pregnant, they won’t even know that there is financial support out there for them to get an abortion,” Elicia Gonzales, executive director of ALF-PA, told Billy Penn.
Am I correct in saying they seem to be concerned that someone who identifies as a man might need the services of this group? I would have thought that anyone who could have an abortion is sort of by definition a woman. At the very least anyone who needs an abortion and who is not a woman is a very special and rare case.
I swear, it seems that the word “woman” is now seen as dangerous and to be avoided. Oddly, I do not see the same sort of caution about the word “man.”
Anyway, for your comments as to your thoughts.
