Piers Morgan host at ‘Good Morning Britain’ ripped into the loons on the far-left who have forced new policies in hospitals. Moving forward, midwives and new moms are no longer able to call it ‘breastfeeding. Instead, they have to use more non-gender-specific terms like ‘chest feeding.
Which is ridiculous. If you are able to feed a child using milk produced from your chest- guess what you are feeding them with?
Morgan first addressed this crazy new concept on Twitter where the leftists tore into him. He decided to go into more details during last Thursday’s segment since the left didn’t seem to understand his point on social media.
“Midwives have been told to refer to ‘chestfeeding’ rather than ‘breastfeeding’ and replace the term ‘mother’ with ‘birthing parent,'” Morgan said before reading a Twitter user’s post that said, “I’m transgender myself, and Morgan is 100 percent correct. This isn’t what the majority of transpeople ask for, and it hinders our rights, not helps us.”
Morgan continued: “That’s my point … I want transgender people to have respect and dignity and equality. I don’t think you get there by telling midwives to stop using the term ‘breastfeeding’ because it may upset a few people when 99% of the people in there are breastfeeding. It’s nonsense, and this kind of PC-cop nonsense with the language … it has the opposite effect to what you think it does. It annoys people … it doesn’t bring you any inclusivity. It becomes exclusive; it alienates people.”

According to Sydney Morning Harold, the movement has already become somewhat widespread. In a policy document, released this week, the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals said staff should not stop using the word “woman” or other terms describing motherhood but they should consciously start adding in the word “people” and other more inclusive language.
It said: “Gender identity can be a source of oppression and health inequality. We are consciously using the words ‘women’ and ‘people’ together to make it clear that we are committed to working on addressing health inequalities for all those who use our services.
“As midwives and birth workers, we focus on improving access and health outcomes for marginalized and disadvantaged groups. Women are frequently disadvantaged in healthcare, as are trans and non-binary people… By continuing to use the term ‘woman’ we commit to working on addressing health inequalities for all who use our services.”
