Hey @CDCgov, can we work on the framing here? Women, and all who can become pregnant, are not perpetually 'pre-pregnant’. Caring for their health is about more than their ability to become pregnant.
@CDCgov Yes, folate is important for a healthy pregnancy, but it may be irrelevant to those using effective contraception and/or would have an abortion if they became pregnant. There are many who “can” get pregnant, but don’t have sex with cisgender men and aren’t planning pregnancy.
@CDCgov Let’s move away from a strictly heteronormative, cisgender-focused framing of pregnancy, @CDCgov, and recognize that continuing a pregnancy is not always a desired outcome for everyone. We have to listen to our patients and their healthcare needs.
@CDCgov Like all treatments, patients should get the facts from a trusted source and make an informed choice about what’s best for them.
