“Individuals with a Cervix” is the Latest Effort to Erase Women

“I don’t know whether to laugh or cry,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., regarding CNN using the expression “individuals with a cervix” instead of women, in a story about screenings for cervical cancer.

“We have come to expect this kind of nonsense from CNN. It’s no wonder CNN is at the bottom of the cable-news heap, with roughly half the viewership of FOX News.”

Morse continued,

“I was really disappointed to see that the CNN story was a direct report from the American Cancer Society’s premier journal. The medical profession, including venerable organizations like the American Cancer Society, has gone all-in for the Sexual Revolution.”

“Increasingly, the Ruling Class and the Beautiful People of society avoid saying ‘man’ and ‘woman,’ to avoid offending men who say they are women,” said Morse. “In May, a UN official said we need to make language more ‘gender-neutral’ by avoiding words like ‘husband’ and ‘wife,’” she explained.

Morse urged:

“CNN and the American Cancer Society need to get a grip on reality. There are two, and only two, sexes — male and female. A man doesn’t become a woman by wanting to be one, or by mutilating his body with hormones and surgery, none of which alters his DNA.”

Morse continued:

“Only women can get cervical cancer, because only a woman has a cervix. Why is that so hard to understand? For decades progressives have claimed to be empowering women. Now they are erasing them and pretending that male and female are ‘social constructs.’ The Sexual Revolution was never really about empowering women.”

“There seems to be no end to CNN’s language-manipulation. Instead of saying ‘baby,’ it once used the expression ‘a fetus that was born,’ referring to protections for infants that survive an abortion,” Morse said.

“Just because CNN ‘self-identifies’ as a news channel doesn’t make it one.”
