Rep. Cori Bush was slammed on social media Thursday over a tweet that referred to black mothers as “black birthing people.”

“Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain,” the Missouri Democrat tweeted Thursday. “My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic. I testified about my experience @OversightDems today. Hear us. Believe us. Because for so long, nobody has.”

Critics on Twitter, especially opponents of abortion, were quick to accuse Bush of diminishing the role of motherhood.

“The words ‘birthing people’ are so absolutely insulting it is almost unimaginable,” Daily Wire editor Emily Zanotti tweeted. “Eff off with that nonsense.”

“’Birthing people’ – you mean women or moms?” Republican congresswoman Nancy Mace tweeted. “The left is so woke they’re stripping from women the one thing that only we can do. Leave it to libs to botch highlighting an important issue ppl in both parties can agree on by catering to the fringes.”

“Are the interests of the African American community served by picking a fight with biology?” Breitbart News Senior Editor at Large Joel Pollak responded. “Why do the professional left-wing activists prefer terms (‘birthing people,’ ‘Latinx,’ etc.) that are rejected by, or at least irrelevant to, the people they supposedly want to help?”

Bush did receive support from the pro-abortion rights nonprofit organization NARAL, which argued that the term is meant to be one of inclusion.

“When we talk about birthing people, we’re being inclusive,” the group posted on its Twitter account Thursday. “It’s that simple. We use gender neutral language when talking about pregnancy, because it’s not just cis-gender women that can get pregnant and give birth. Reproductive freedom is for *every* body.”

Bush’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the controversial term.
