A UK government lawyer has said that “mother” is no longer a gender specific term preserved only for women.

The comments were made during a High Court hearing where a ‘transgender’ man born a woman gave birth to a child and is seeking to be named the father, rendering the baby legally motherless, reports The Telegraph.
