During a recent Zoom event hosted by the Michigan Democratic Party, Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer referred to women as "menstruating people."
Whitmer was asked about a proposed amendment to the Michigan state constitution protecting access to abortion in the event the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
Erica Peresman, the Michigan Democratic Party's voter protection director asked, "What should we expect, this is a scary one, what should we expect if the reproductive freedom proposal fails? Are you able to protect reproductive rights without that proposal passing if Roe v. Wade fails? What can voters do to help preserve our freedom of choice?"
Whitmer replied, "So, we saw where we thought Dobbs was going to be headed, and this was prior to the draft opinion coming out publicly. So, we looked at all the tools that I have as governor and determined a couple of unique things I can do."
She continued, "Number one: I have the constitutional ability to bring a lawsuit to protect constitutional rights of people of Michigan. So, I brought a lawsuit on behalf of all the menstruating people in Michigan, 2.2 million. And another tool I have is to go straight to our state Supreme Court.”
The amendment proposal is being led by Reproductive Freedom For All, and will only appear on the ballot if the minimum number of petition signatures required by state law are obtained and certified by the board of state canvassers by July 11.
The comments were similar to those made last year by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-NY), who was slammed for referring to a woman as a "menstruating person."
The Republican challengers seeking to unseat Whitmer were quick to respond to her comments.
A spokesperson for businessman Kevin Rinke told Fox News Digital, "Governor Whitmer and her entire administration have shown they are on the extreme, fringe Left when it comes to every issue."
"Between the AG calling for a drag queen in every classroom to the governor making up her own anatomy course, this administration has lost sight of the fact that Michiganders are suffering under their failed leadership."
Businesswoman Tudor Dixon told Fox News Digital, "Has the left gone insane? I mean really. Menstruating people? Drag queens in every school? This is not normal behavior. Someone needs to check the Democratic Party. It's starting to seem like COVID was more like mad cow disease."
Pastor Ralph Rebandt said of Whitmer's comments, "Our Declaration of Independence addresses ‘the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.’ Governor Whitmer’s use of politically correct LGBTQ+ language is evidence of a moral collapse in our society."
"A culture that rejects 'Nature’s God,' as we did sixty years ago, will eventually reject the 'Laws of Nature.' When that happens, God help us, because there’s no line that can’t be crossed.”
