  1. “Pregnant women vs Pregnant people” If only women can get pregnant, (and I agree that physically that is true) why even say women. Just say, “pregnant”. Consider however, it does take both a man and a woman to cause a pregnancy in a human. I think it is over spoken to say woman or people when speaking of a human pregnancy. Shouldn’t your governor be more concerned about the poor economic and educational status of the people.
