Should rape and incest survivors be forced to prove that they were assaulted to the IRS?
What kind of question is that?
But a bill that just passed the House could force many sexual assault survivors to do just that.
The bill would impose tax penalties on small businesses and individuals who buy abortion coverage with their own money—with exceptions only for cases of rape, incest, or when a woman's life is in danger.
The result? Survivors of rape and incest who seek abortion care could be forced to detail their assaults and provide proof to IRS investigators.
Tell the Senate to stand up against this terrible bill, and speak out against the Republican war on women. Sign the petition today.
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your Senators.
Full petition text:
"Subjecting survivors of rape and incest to IRS interrogations is inhumane. Reject this awful proposal, and stand up against the anti-choice Republican war on women."
