(The Christian Institute)— A woman says she felt forced to resign from Doula UK after being labeled “transphobic” for saying only women can give birth.
Lynsey McCarthy-Calvert was working for the charity — which provides women with “birth coaches” to assist them during pregnancy and childbirth — when she criticized Cancer Research UK for dropping the word “woman” from its messaging on smear tests.
Doula threatened to suspend McCarthy-Calvert if she did not remove her Facebook post, after 20 trans activists complained.
A Doula UK spokesperson told reporters, “We are proud to say that we seek to listen to the lived experience of marginalized groups and make changes — including changes to the language we use — if we believe it is necessary to make the Doula UK community more welcoming and supportive.”
