Us House Panel Moves To Strip All Tax Benefits For Abortions

04.01.11 | Sarah Harnisch

A U.S. House panel has written a bill that would strip all tax incentives for abortions in the United States. The measure, H.R. 1232, was approved in a party-line vote, 22-14, on Thursday. It now goes to the full house. Under the bill, taxpayers would be prevented from deducting the cost of an abortion from their taxable income and they would not be allowed to use tax credits to pay for health plans that cover the procedure. Women would also be prevented from using tax-free money in their health savings accounts for abortions.
