Sometimes even Democratic governors have a hard time keeping up with the latest leftist absurdities—such as the fact that men can get pregnant.
This most recent faux pas comes courtesy of Gov. Gavin Newsom of California, who made some remarks at a very staged and ready-for-Hollywood event on Wednesday. It was a time for Newsom to gather with abortion advocates and comment on the leaked draft memo indicating the Supreme Court is on the verge of overturning Roe v. Wade after nearly fifty years, and which has touched off a firestorm of debate across the country.
“Hell, they don’t even believe in climate science,” Newsom said during the event, referring to supporters of abortion restrictions.
“Talk to me about being pro-life,” he continued. “Spare me. Your body, your choice. It’s a hell of a moment to live in. But like you say, we will not be defeated. We will stand tall, we will stand firm and we will affirm the constitutional—currently constitutionally protected rights of women and girls for their reproductive rights and freedoms in California.
“And we will assert ourselves, as I said, as Californians, by punching above our weight working with other like-minded leaders and governors and legislatures all across this country, and we’re not going to roll over. We will not back down and will continue to fill in the gaps and address the disparities that continue to persist, even in a state like ours, even in California,” he said.
After making his spirited remarks in defense of Roe, Newsom tweeted a snippet of his speech, along with a message for the faithful.
If men could get pregnant, this wouldn’t even be a conversation.
This decision isn’t about strengthening families – it’s about extremism. It’s about control.
We will fight for the right to choose. pic.twitter.com/Yky1Q3RNqJ

“If men could get pregnant,” he wrote, “this wouldn’t even be a conversation. This decision isn’t about strengthening families—it’s about extremism. It’s about control. We will fight for the right to choose.”
Of course, Newsom’s egregious error is immediately apparent. Men, as anyone who is current with the most recent liberal pieties understands, most certainly can get pregnant. Gender activists hold that men are self-evidently capable of both menstruating and giving birth to children. Newsom’s refusal to acknowledge that proven fact, which is as obvious as climate science, instantly identified him as a right-wing extremist or at least fascist-adjacent.
Conservative Twitter didn’t hesitate to call him out for his bigoted and exclusionary remarks.
This is all so confusing. Can we get pregnant or not? pic.twitter.com/luYOWd5bO4

“Men get pregnant now. Keep up with your wack job party dude,” tweeted one user, who neatly summarized the problem.
So basically you’re saying that only women can get pregnant and men can’t menstruate? Transphobic radical and racist.

Others excoriated Newsom for his obvious bigotry and trans-exclusionary prejudice.
How dare you deny the reproductive rights of pregnant men everywhere 🏳️⚧️

Newsom needs to educate himself, obviously.
He could certainly take a tip from a fellow Democrat, Wisconsin State Representative Francesca Hong, who was a little more diplomatic in her defense of abortion. She simply referred to women as “birthing bodies,” which makes much more sense.
Birthing bodies have the right to freedom.
Deciding if or when to become a parent is one of the most personal, life-changing decisions. Access to abortion & reproductive care is a decision we must trust each person to make based on what’s best for their health & their future.
