Today’s hot topic: When a row is born

-

A BIRTH coach has quit her professional organisation after transgender activists complained about a Facebook post in which she said that only women can have babies.

Lynsey McCarthy-Calvert, 45, was forced to stand down as spokesperson for Doula UK. The row started after Cancer Research UK dropped the word ‘women’ from its smear test campaign, instead saying screening was ‘relevant for everyone aged 25-64 with a cervix’.

In response, Mrs McCarthy-Calvert wrote on Facebook: ‘I am not a “cervix owner” . . . I am a woman: an adult human female.’ She added: ‘Women birth all the people [and] make up half the population.’

A Facebook follower accused her of using ‘absolutely disgusting language’, adding: ‘Also, you seem to be forgetting that not only women birth children.’

Has the world turned upside down? Discuss!
