Connecticut: The gendered terms appear to have been removed from all paperwork required for obtaining a birth certificate.

For example, they now request the immunization records of the “birth parent” and ask for “affidavits of the birth parent, non-birth parent, and witnesses to the birth and pregnancy.”

The list of documents required to send to the Registrar of Vital Records includes a “signed and dated report from the practitioner or clinic that provided postpartum care to the birth parent within twenty-four hours after the birth,” as well as a “notarized affidavit by the birth parent attesting to the date, time, and place of the live birth.”

There are now no mentions of mothers, fathers, or gendered pronouns in the documents and worksheets.

Connecticut is not the first state to erase the words mother and father from this type of paperwork.

According to a report from the Daily Caller, the Pennsylvania worksheet, revised in May 2022 uses the term “birthing parent” to refer to a mother.

“The term ‘birthing parent’ is used to describe the parent who birthed the child,” the state’s “Birthing Parent’s Worksheet” says.

Ohio also has a “Birth Parent’s Worksheet,” though it still contains the word “mother” in several places.

In July, a leaked proposal showed that the National Education Association was considering changing the word “mother” to “birthing parent” as the formal language used by state and local educational entities, according to a report from NBC 24. The goal of the resolution was to be more “inclusive” to transgender parents.

“NEA will inform states and locals of the following sample language that may be put in contracts that is LGBTQIA+ inclusive,” an alleged NEA proposal for a resolution titled NBI 63 reads. “’Parental leave’ instead of ‘maternity leave,’ ‘parent’ instead of ‘mother’ or ‘father,’ ‘birthing parent’ instead of ‘mother,’ and ‘non-birthing parent’ instead of ‘father,’” the proposal said.

The resolution was ultimately not adopted.

  1. If transgender people want their documents to be comfortable FOR THEM, then make separate documents for them and leave the original legal paperwork the way it always was for normal people. We feel uncomfortable having our certificates worded any differently then they always have been and always should and will be. Lawsuits will be cropping up for any certificates that are changed to accommodate new wording. Permission will be needed to do so in the future.

  2. What a crock! This type of despicable trash is the reason nothing of importance has been done for the good of this country since you ran Mr Trump off! The bunch of thugs and miscreants running our states, and federal government, who actually jump on the perverted wokeness train have dedicated themselves to creating a totally acceptable perverted society! I had a wonderful mother and daddy. My mother birthed me as I did my three children. All this talk of identity, gender, and other stupid words I have no idea what they are even supposed to mean is just disgusting. You can put all the words you want out there regarding the genders and alphabet, but my language will never change! If you are born a male, you absolutely know what you are from that day on, same goes for being born a female. God made each of us for a reason and I would NEVER second guess our Creator! To try to mess with creation is a very frightening thing. Be very careful, folks! Men cannot have babies! You surgery it up all you want, and that’s pretty scary, too, but won’t change a thing !
