Birthing People's Day? Cori Bush Debate Rages Into Mother's Day Weekend
An online debate sparked by Missouri Democratic Congresswoman Cori Bush calling women "birthing people" has raged on into Mother's Day weekend.
On Thursday, Bush drew praise and criticism after she used the term "birthing people" to describe mothers during a speech in Congress.
"I sit before you today as a single mom, as a nurse, as an activist, congresswoman, and I am committed to doing the absolute most to protect Black mothers, to protect Black babies, to protect Black birthing people, and to save lives," she said.
