New Rape Bill From House Republicans: Sex Victims To Be Audited By IRS On Abortion Costs

News

It's really a good thing Mother Jones exists in 2011, isn't it? Because you're sure not going to find a story about this in the New York Times or Washington Post:


Under a GOP-backed bill expected to sail through the House of Representatives, the Internal Revenue Service would be forced to police how Americans have paid for their abortions. To ensure that taxpayers complied with the law, IRS agents would have to investigate whether certain terminated pregnancies were the result of rape or incest. And one tax expert says that the measure could even lead to questions on tax forms: Have you had an abortion? Did you keep your receipt?

In testimony to a House taxation subcommittee on Wednesday, Thomas Barthold, the chief of staff of the nonpartisan Joint Tax Committee, confirmed that one consequence of the Republicans' "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" would be to turn IRS agents into abortion cops—that is, during an audit, they'd have to detemine, from evidence provided by the taxpayer, whether any tax benefit had been inappropriately used to pay for an abortion.

So, ladies, after your rapist impregnates you, make sure to either have the rapist's baby as GOD INTENDED or keep all your receipts for the friendly IRS agent. [Mother Jones]
