Rejected Liberal candidate Katherine Deves deleted her Twitter account once again after posting another controversial tweet about transgender women. 

Ms Deves, who was defeated in the seat of Warringah by independent Zali Steggall in last month's federal election, appeared to sarcastically question whether women should be referred to as 'womb-havers', 'people-with-vaginas' or 'birthing bodies'. 

Her post was in response to a tweet from ABC radio host Patricia Karvelas about the US Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade on Friday.

The landmark 1973 decision recognised Americans' constitutional right to abortion and legalised it nationwide.

'My heart breaks for the women of America #RoeVWade,' Karvelas wrote on Saturday.

Ms Deves later replied, writing, 'Don't you mean "womb-havers", "people-with-vaginas" or "birthing bodies"?' 

Her post received a huge backlash on Twitter, with Australians criticising the tweet for being transphobic and inappropriate in the wake of the court ruling in the US. 

'Read the room and keep your mouth shut Katherine,' one wrote.

'Imagine if Deves and (Amanda) Stoker were in parliament. This country has dodged a bullet for sure,' another commented.

A third added: 'Katherine Deves once again showcasing what a destructively vile woman she is. On today of all days she chooses to publicly post this.'

'Didn’t we already put you in the bin last election?' questioned one critic.
