IRS Offers Tax Deduction for Abortions But Not Stillborn Babies

Tax Day is quickly approaching and those looking to figure out which of their medical expenses are deductible might be surprised to see abortion at the top of the list of items that can be included in one's medical expense deduction. 

That’s right, according to the IRS, “you can include in medical expenses the amount you pay for a legal abortion.” In other words, killing your child earns you a tax break.

Even more disconcerting, however, is that the medical expenses parents incur for a stillborn child cannot be deducted. So death of a child by natural causes cannot be exempted, while the active killing of an unborn child can be deducted.

Got it.
