Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra refused to give a direct answer to whether “men can get pregnant” during a Wednesday hearing.
Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert asked Becerra to define the term “man,” to which the secretary replied she was “looking at one.” His answer then prompted the Colorado representative to ask the HHS secretary on whether men can get pregnant.
“Unless you know something I don’t, I think the answer’s pretty obvious,” Becerra said.
“What is that answer, sir?” she pressed. “I’m asking you what you know. Can men get pregnant?”
“I’m not aware of it,” Becerra answered.
Boebert then asked about Becerra previously calling mothers “birthing persons” in his department’s materials.
“Are mothers not persons?” he answered.
“Mothers are persons but it seems to be more inclusive, like you’re trying to include another gender in that,” she said, to which Becerra replied he is “all about inclusion.”
