    Thanks for asking!

    Problem Language: Woman/Women  
    Gender Neutral Language: Person/People 
    Sentence: “I support a person’s right to choose.” - “People having on demand access to abortion in crucial.”

    Problem Language: Pregnant Women/Woman
    Gender Neutral Language: Pregnant Person/People
    Sentence: “A pregnant person is most likely to abort in the first trimester.” - “Unsafe abortion is a leading killer of pregnant people.”

    Problem Language: Woman/Women
    Gender Neutral Language: Person/People who can become pregnant.
    Sentence: “A person who can become pregnant should be able to seek reproductive health services without laws or stigma getting in the way.” - “Over 3/4 of people who can become pregnant do not have an abortion provider in their county.”

    Problem Language: Woman/Women
    Gender Neutral Language: Person/People this issue affects.
    Sentence: “1 in 3 people this issue affects will have an abortion by age 40.” - “A person this issue affects may have difficulty affording an abortion.”

    Problem Language: Mother 
    Gender Neutral Language: Pregnant Person/Parent
    Sentence: “The chance of the pregnant person feeling regret after an abortion is actually statistically low.” - “The parent decided to terminate the pregnancy to take better care of their existing child.”

    I did not include “People with uteruses” or “Person with a uterus” due to trans and Non-binary people telling me they find it triggering and reducing them to body parts. There’s plenty of alternatives, so let’s make our spaces safe and comfortable for everyone. 

    This should make it extremely clear what language to use and how to use it. If I have forgotten something or I am suggesting problematic language please let me know and I’ll make alterations.
