Infamously anti-Trump surgeon Eugene Gu claimed in a tweet posted Friday that it is “a scientific and medical fact that men can get pregnant and also have abortions.”
“It’s a scientific and medical fact that men can get pregnant and also have abortions,” he wrote. “Trans men and non-binary individuals are human beings who deserve to be acknowledged by society. They choose their own identity — not me, not you, not any doctor, and certainly not any politician.”
The tweet was met with mockery and blowback.
“In a world where medical science bows down and worships the gods and goddesses of political ideology, doctors say things like this …,” pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha captioned the outrageous tweet.
