In the United Kingdom is now illegal to called a woman pregnant because of a United Nations’ rule because the term may offend a transgender person uk un 1984 newspeak

Full Fact.org recently did an summary of an article from the The Sun.

Has the government banned the term ‘pregnant woman’?

“Foreign Office blasted for trying to ban Brits from saying ‘pregnant woman’ — as it may offend transgender parents”

The Sun, 22 October 2017

The term ‘pregnant woman’ is not being banned by the government. It’s not even being discouraged.

The government, the law, and even the Equality and Human Rights Commission routinely talk about pregnant women.

Downing Street went out of its way to emphasise that “of course pregnant women is an acceptable term” after newspapers claimed it wasn’t.

United Nations rule that is cited in the above article:

Article 6. 1. Every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his life.

Within this UN framework each country has a wide latitude of interpretation.  And they may make ‘general comments‘ on how Article 6 could or would be applied to their country.  The UK’s general comments includes:

The UK is generally supportive of paragraph 9, but considers that the third sentence should end after “substantial pain or suffering”; at present the following phrase is both too detailed and also risks restricting the more general text of “substantial pain or suffering”. We further note that in using the term “pregnant woman” the Committee may be inadvertently restricting the application of this paragraph to exclude transgender people who have given birth; this has happened in two recent cases in the UK.

So, if this you call someone pregnant and a transgender person in the UK is around you may create an international incident and could be brought up UN tribunal charges if this is brought to its most ridiculous conclusion.  More likely you get a fine or have to participate in ‘re-education/’
