Maine Attorney General Aaron Frey (D) endorsed a proposed amendment to Maine’s State Constitution on Monday that would enshrine the “right to abortion”, stating that the amendment would apply to “persons who have uteruses” because not all abortion patients are women.
“The ability to carry a child belongs to that person who has a womb. I understand that there are others who believe they know better than the person who has the womb as to how they should use it,” AG Frey told members of the Judiciary Committee, pointedly avoiding the terms like “woman” and “mother.”
“I believe that this, what is proposed is written to recognize, uh, persons who have a uterus, decisions that they get to make with how they’re going to use it. There are some individuals who have a uterus that do not claim the pronoun he or she,” said Frey.
Only women — that is, human beings born with XX chromosomes — are capable of bearing children.
Adherents to left-wing gender ideology, like Frey, have a different understanding of what being a women means, and so they prefer to call women “people who have uteruses.”
Last year, Democratic leaders in Maine’s legislature called for an investigation into Frey after media reports revealed that he had carried on an undisclosed affair with a married subordinate who had a uterus.
The outside investigator eventually found Frey was guilty of no wrongdoing in his dealings with the uterus-holder.
