Biden admin agencies move to eliminate words like ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from childcare laws

Agencies within the Biden administration have moved to scrub gender-specific words like “mother” and “father” from childcare legislation, according to a Monday report by CatholicVote.

According to the report, an unpublished regulatory proposal filed by the Office of Child Support Services (OCSS), the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “proposes to make changes to replace the gender-specific terms ‘mother’ and ‘father’ with the gender-neutral term ‘parent’ where such terms appear” in the law.

The proposal also suggests swapping out words like “his or her” with the gender-neutral but plural “their” and trading “paternity” for “parentage.”

The HHS states that its filing “aligns with President Biden’s Executive orders” as well as the so-called “Respect for Marriage Act” in “advancing equity for all, including members of the LGBTQI+ communities,” as well as “recogniz[ing] the existence of and legal needs of diverse family structures.”

This is far from the first time the Biden administration has made headlines for using gender-bending language in government filings or rejecting biological reality.

In 2021, Biden’s 2022 budget proposal used the phrase “birthing people” instead of “mothers.”

Meanwhile, Biden’s HHS assistant secretary, Richard Levine, is a man who claims to be a woman and goes by the name “Rachel.” The Biden administration has also hired other gender-confused individuals, including cross-dressing “non-binary” Sam Brinton (who later left his role after being caught stealing women’s luggage), and gave a platform to controversial LGBT activist Dylan Mulvaney.

Last year, Biden-nominated U.S. Supreme Court pick Ketanji Brown Jackson drew criticism for refusing to define what a woman is.

“Can you provide a definition for the word woman?” Republican U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee asked the Harvard-educated federal judge during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

“Can I provide a definition? No. I can’t,” Brown said.

“You can’t?” Senator Blackburn asked.

“Not in this context, I’m not a biologist,” she said.
