During a House Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing on Thursday, Dr. Bhavik Kumar, who was a witness at the hearing, asserted that men can get pregnant — Kumar describes himself on social media as a “Family medicine physician” and “Abortion and trans care provider in the south.”
When GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia asked whether biological men can get pregnant and give birth, Kumar responded by claiming that “men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”

The claim that men can get pregnant is patently absurd — biological men cannot get pregnant and transgender men are just biological women masquerading as men.
Clyde pressed the issue, asking if Kumar was suggesting that a biological woman who identifies as a man and gets pregnant is actually a man.
“These questions about who can become pregnant are really missing the point,” Kumar said, indicating that the issue was not the topic that he was there to discuss. “Somebody with a uterus may have” the capacity for pregnancy, Kumar said, adding that it does not “make a difference” if the person is a woman or a man, and that not everyone with a uterus can get pregnant.
The exchange highlighted the utter foolishness of the radical leftist gender ideology, which has been metastasizing throughout society.
Irrespective of how they identify, “men cannot get pregnant and cannot … give birth,” Clyde noted.
During remarks earlier in the hearing, Kumar described abortion bans as “inherently racist, inherently classist, and fundamentally” an aspect of “the white supremacy agenda.”
In response to an inquiry from Clyde, Kumar admitted to having performed “likely thousands” of abortions.
“Trans people exist. Trans people have abortions. Abortion is essential healthcare and so is gender-affirming care. I will not let bullies who are out of touch with reality silence or stop me from advocating for people who need trans and abortion care,” Kumar tweeted on Thursday.
