Fury as woke health bosses remove word ‘mother’ from maternity document

WOKE bosses at the General Medical Council have sparked outrage after removing the word “mother” from a document about maternity.

It has been replaced with gender-neutral references, such as replacing “surrogate mother” with “surrogate mothers.”

The agency, which regulates medical professionals, has been criticized for imposing a “woke ideology” on staff.

Professor Karol Sikora, an oncologist for 50 years, said: “Not enough medical professionals can cope with this madness.

“Only women can become pregnant and give birth. “I’m sorry, but that’s a biological fact.”

A GMC official said: “It is a concerted effort to ignore the existence of women.

“It is not appropriate for a medical organization to ignore biology.

They should stick to the science.”

Helen Joyce, head of advocacy group Sex Matters, said: “It is incredible that one of the UK’s leading medical organizations has removed the word ‘mother’ from its maternity guidelines.”

References to women have also been removed from the GMC’s menopause policy, a separate document.

It said: “We are committed to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all employees and supporting colleagues through menopause.”

Heather Welford of With Woman, a group of midwives and other maternity doctors, said the changes were “ideologically motivated”, “potentially harmful to women and babies” and “insulting to women”.

In a statement, a GMC spokesperson said: “We have established clear maternity, paternity and adoption policies for our employees, which we review regularly.”
