'Pregnant Patients,' Justice Jackson?

The justice who was nominated to the Supreme Court based on her race and sex refused for the second time in her short high court career to acknowledge women. The stiff to the females she claims to represent came in her concurring opinion in Moyle v. United States, released on Thursday.

Jackson joined Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan in deciding to punt a ruling on the Biden administration’s attempt to twist the 1986 Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) to advance its abortion extremism in pro-life states. She also penned her own concurring opinion claiming that Idaho’s popular lifesaving law specifically posed a threat to women. Yet she refused to write the word “women.”


Throughout her eight-page opinion, Jackson reduced those most impacted by Idaho’s law and the regime’s EMTALA expansion to “pregnant patients” instead of using the biologically accurate label used to describe the unique humans intrinsically designed to conceive and birth children.

I double-checked this and Boyd's correct. The word "woman" appears 85 times in the combined opinions, and "women" 16 more times. None of those appear in Jackson's separate dissent and concurrence. The phrase "pregnant patients" appears five times, and only in Jackson's opinion. Justice Kagan uses "pregnant women" six times, in comparison.
