IRS tax exemption to parents who kill child with abortion but not if stillborn

Saynsumthn's Blog

Did you know that you can get a tax deduction for killing your own child?

H/T to my friend Ryan Bomberger over at The Radiance Foundation who tweeted this IRS list of items you can include in medical expense deductions which includes abortion:

IRS abortion deduction

The exemption is listed under the IRS Publication 502, subtitled, “What are medical expenses”

There is just one catch, according to Table 21-1. Medical and Dental Expenses Checklist the abortion must be a legal abortion.

Ironically enough, although you can claim abortion as a tax deduction, IRS Publication 501 forbids parents from claiming a stillborn child on their taxes for exemptions.

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

Long long ago, way before any conversion I experienced, I used to occasionally read Dan Savage’s column in the local alternative weekly.  Even though I was very much a libertine at that time, I was repulsed even then by much of what he wrote. I guess even worse were the scenarios his correspondents ostensibly presented (he wrote a “Dear Abby” for the profoundly sexually troubled, but I suspect many of the stories were invented by Savage himself), as he was beyond crude and depressingly sick even then.  If anything, he has grown more deranged as the years have gone by.  For twenty years he has made no bones of his hatred for all things good and pure.  He hates religion, and especially Catholicism, with an intensity that is surely diabolical.  He constantly attacks morals and decency as the affront they are to his own lifestyle, a lifestyle so beyond the…
