Sen. Braun, Rep. Davidson call to end tax breaks for abortion under the guise of healthcare


Senator Braun & Rep. Davidson call to end tax breaks for abortion under the guise of healthcare

JASPER, IN - Citing that abortion is not healthcare, Senator Mike Braun and Representative Warren Davidson (R-OH) sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin calling for new regulations to end tax breaks for abortion under the guise of healthcare.

Joining Senator Braun and Representative Davidson are 101 other signers: 22 Senators and 79 Representatives.

"Abortion is not healthcare. Any procedure where a successful outcome is the death of a living human being - born or unborn - is not healthcare. That's why we're calling for new regulations to end IRS tax breaks for abortion under the guise of medical care." - Senator Mike Braun


“Abortion is not health care, and it should not be recognized as such by the IRS.” Davidson said. “I am proud to partner with Sen. Mike Braun and our colleagues in calling upon Secretary Mnuchin to have the IRS reverse its controversial 1973 ruling, which runs contrary to statute. Taxpayers should never be forced to subsidize abortion.”
