The term “women” has been deleted from the National Health Service’s online help center for female malignancies, as part of a push to “desex” healthcare.
NHS England’s web interface has changed the main pages for cervix, ovary, and uterus cancer to align with far-left ideology.
The Times of London first noted the transformation to delete the word “women” on Tuesday.
It claimed the supposedly independent government health service “desexed” the webpage to appear to comply with the concept that biological females can transform into men, but still be affected by female-only cancers.
Although certain segments of the webpage still mention women, the primary homepage for health advice on ovarian cancer now asserts:
“Anyone with ovarian follicles can get ovarian cancer, but mostly it impacts some over 50, rather than the previous installment,” which explained the illness as “one of the most common forms of cancer in women.”
Womb cancer is “a frequent malignancy that attacks the female reproductive system that is much more common in women who have been through menopause,” according to the landing page for individuals with the disease.

“Womb cancer is a condition that impacts the uterus,” the official site now simply explains. “During pregnancy, a baby develops in the womb (uterus).”
“Cervical cancer is a malignancy that can be detected anywhere else in the cervix,” the article on cervical cancer said, excluding all references to women.
Dr. Karleen Gribble of Western Sydney University commented on the latest changes, saying while they were “well-intentioned,” they will certainly present complications for individuals seeking information.
“I believe the modifications to desex terminology are well-intentioned. Yet, we’re finding they’re making messages less clear, which, when it comes to crucial health concerns, has the potential to jeopardize people’s health and welfare,” she added.
Scrambling to Cover Themselves
“It is not true to imply there is no reference of women on the ovary, uterus, and cervical cancer sections,” an NHS Digital representative answered.
“We updated the pages as part of our normal web page review to ensure they are up to speed with the most up-to-date clinical data and they are as useful as possible to everyone who requires them.”

The news comes amid a bigger discussion in the United Kingdom about the nature of femininity and transgender; with some high-profile politicians lately saying women may have testicles, including a Labour MP.
The NHS has been a hotbed of debate concerning trans problems, with the ostensibly impartial government institution being chastised for placing biologically male transgender sexual predators in female-only hospital beds.
According to a preliminary report by Dr. Hilary Cass, a former Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, many physicians and other healthcare authorities are scared to speak out against the NHS’s far-left gendered stances.
