    Numerous Departments of Public Health across the United States are opting to replace "mother" and "father" for "birth parent" and "non-birth parent," respectively.

    A trove of scanned documents from the The Connecticut Department of Public Health circulating on social media reveal their official childbirth forms have been altered to substitute mother with "birth parent" and father with "non-birth parent."

    The documents surfaced on Twitter Friday after a Connecticut father, whose wife is expecting to deliver their second child at home, shared them with a third party. The paperwork was noticeably different from the first time the couple did a home birth.

    The "Registration of a Home Birth Parent's Guide" contains instructions and forms for the "birth parent" and "non-birth parent" to obtain the child's birth certificate, and a variety of data-collecting forms requesting background information and medical data, affidavits, and immunization records from the "birth parent" and "non-birth parent."

    The "Birth Parent's Worksheet for Child Birth Certificate (v2003)," revised in January 2022, is also found online. A previous version from 2016 and 2017 shows the change from "Mother's Worksheet" to "Birth Parent's Worksheet." The Daily Wire reached out to the Connecticut Department of Public Health for comment, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

    Similar guidance for "birthing parents" is issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Health.

    The Head Start program of the Department of Health and Human Services updated several of their parenting resources in recent months to incorporate "inclusive language."

    In a note from the PDF for improving outcomes of "birthing parents," the HHS acknowledges the language update: "This document uses the terms 'birthing parents' and 'pregnant and postpartum people' to refer to anyone who gives birth, regardless of their gender identity, which may be female, male, nonbinary, or other."

    On a page updated on August 10, 2022, dedicated to information on Child Nutrition, HHS included a note on the vocabulary update. "Consider using the words 'parent,' 'birthing parent,' and 'pregnant person' instead of or in addition to 'woman' and 'mother,'" reads the HHS guidance.

    The HHS Head Start program also provides resources on breastfeeding, for which they opt to include the term "chestfeeding." They explain, "'Chestfeeding' is another term that can be used as a way for transgender and nonbinary parents to describe how they feed and nurture their babies after childbirth by feeding them milk from their chest."

    The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) created a language guide last year with a table titled "Suggested Terms in Breastfeeding and Human Lactation." On the left-hand side, a column labeled "traditional terms" includes "breast milk," while a middle column of "Gender-inclusive terms" suggests "father's milk" as a possible alternative.

    The guideline also includes words "chestfeeding," "human milk feeding," and "lactating person" to use in place of "traditional terms" like breastfeeding, nursing mother, and breast. The ABM published its latest position statement in August of 2021, with its intended mission to affirm their "commitment to gender equality and health equity" and provide "guidelines on infant feeding and lactation-related language and gender."

In what may be the most divisive period in modern American History, even more divisive than the turbulent sixties due to today's lack of patriotism, consider what are the major catalysts causing so much of this calamity of conflict, and vote: What most instigates the division of America, on this day September 20, 2022?
  Racism within our society
  Sex realignment to the detriment of our society.
  Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Policy for the Demographic Upheaval of OUR Constitutional Republic
  Rampant Crime in Democratic controlled cities, and the possible contagion elsewhere
  Covid Pandemic, and its mishandling at the political, and bureaucratic levels.
  The unresolved questions /allegation regarding the flawed 2020 General Election
  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.
  Propagandistic Media in complete conflict with the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Speech, and the awesome responsibility of a Free Press..
  "Orangeman Bad!"
  Bureaucracy rushing to a behemoth size, its unjustified expense, and far too often overreach.
  The Weaponized Deep State for political purposes
  A secular ambivalence to all that is real.
  Record number of overdose deaths from opioids and now Fentanyl
  Biden Administration's disastrous Foreign Policy
  Bidenflation /supply chain failure inevitably evolving into stagflation and recession.
  "Ultra MAGA Extremists" freely speaking louder AND LOUDER!
