The U.S. House of Representatives recognized children in the womb with the passage of a tax reform bill that allows unborn children to qualify for education savings accounts.
This is “a big pro-life win,” said Andrew Guernsey, senior legislative assistant at the Family Research Council (FRC). “It gets the unborn recognized in the tax code.”
The same tax code that has been known for subsidizing abortions is now making a pro-life stance. Naturally, Planned Parenthood and NARAL are adamantly against the bill because they deem it an attack on a woman’s “reproductive rights.”
While the bill still needs to pass the Senate and be signed by the President before it becomes law, many conservative pro-lifers are encouraged by the change. “Anytime—and in any way—that our laws recognize the unborn as persons, it advances the cause to protect all unborn children,” said Greg Schleppenbach, associate director at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB’s) Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities.
