Michigan Lawmakers Propose Tax Credits for Unborn Fetuses
Posted at 9:52 a.m. on Nov. 22, 2012
“Republican lawmakers in Michigan, a state which eliminated tax credits for children last year, have proposed a tax credit for unborn fetuses of 12 weeks gestation,” the Guardian reports.
“If the measure, outlined in two bills heard by the house tax policy committee on Tuesday, becomes law it would be the first of its kind in the US.”
“Critics said the proposal was ‘absurd’ and described it as a backdoor way of trying to pass “personhood” legislation which would give rights to an embryo and crack down on abortion.”
