Yes, men can get pregnant, more than one in five Democrats say, a new survey finds - and the executive director of an a group advocating the unrestricted right to abortion agrees.

“The online survey, conducted by WPA Intelligence from August 22-25, found 22% of Democrats agreed with the statement, ‘Some men can get pregnant,’” The Daily Wire reported on Tuesday.

Women identifying as Democrats were more likely to agree that men can become pregnant, including 36% of white, college-educated female Democrats.

“The poll underscores the Left’s growing embrace of a radical gender theory that biological sex does not dictate gender. People born female can later 'identify' as men while retaining the ability to reproduce; hence the claim 'men' can become pregnant,” The Daily Wire explains.

Testifying at a House Judiciary Committee hearing in May, the executive director of an abortion advocacy organization also claimed that men can become pregnant and even have abortions.

Aimee Arrambide, Executive Director of Avow, a Texas-based organization devoted to “securing unrestricted abortion care and reproductive rights,” was first asked by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) to define the term “woman.”

Arrambide replied that “woman” is defined by personal opinion:

Rep. Dan Bishop: “What do you say a woman is?”

Aimee Arrambide: “I believe that everyone can identify for themselves.”

“Do you believe, then, that men can become pregnant and have abortions?” Rep. Bishop asked.

“Yes,” Arrambide declared. Rep. Bishop did not pursue the issue further.

“About 5% of young adults in the U.S. say their gender is different from their sex assigned at birth” -  compared to 1.6% of all U.S. adults - Pew Research reported in June, announcing the results of its survey on the issue:

“Adults under 30 are more likely than older adults to be trans or nonbinary. Some 5.1% of adults younger than 30 are trans or nonbinary, including 2.0% who are a trans man or trans woman and 3.0% who are nonbinary – that is, they are neither a man nor a woman or aren’t strictly one or the other.”
