Report: IRS denied tax-exempt status to pro-lifers on behalf of Planned Parenthood

IRS officials refused to grant tax exempt status to two pro-life organizations because of their position on the abortion issue, according to a non-profit law firm, which said that one group was pressured not to protest a pro-choice organization that endorsed President Obama during the last election.
“In one case, the IRS withheld approval of an application for tax exempt status for Coalition for Life of Iowa. In a phone call to Coalition for Life of Iowa leaders on June 6, 2009, the IRS agent ‘Ms. Richards’ told the group to send a letter to the IRS with the entire board’s signatures stating that, under perjury of the law, they do not picket/protest or organize groups to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood,” the Thomas More Society announced today. “Once the IRS received this letter, their application would be approved.”
Planned Parenthood endorsed Obama in 2008 and 2012.
The IRS also pressured another pro-life group about its religious activities. “The IRS withheld approval of an application for charitable tax-exempt recognition of Christian Voices for Life, questioning the group’s involvement with ’40 Days for Life’ and ‘Life Chain’ events,” according to the law firm. “The Fort Bend County, Texas, organization was subjected to repeated and lengthy unconstitutional requests for information about the viewpoint and content of its educational communications, volunteer prayer vigils, and other protected activities.”
The IRS admitted last week to that some members of the agency targeted Tea Party groups for discriminatory reviews of their applications for tax-exempt status. The Justice Department has initiated a criminal investigation into the matter.

just thinking out loud, but that DOESN’T seem fair.

The IRS needs to be abolished, completely, and replaced with a federal sales tax, then everybody pays and nobody becomes a criminal for not paying or errors in the returns, Let the H & R Block people go look for jobs just like the factory workers did after NAFTA hit home.

The IRS has been corrupt and out of control for most of its existence. And now more than ever, they are proving to be a rogue agency and very dangerous to the health of this republic. It’s even more ludicrous to fathom the idea of the IRS managing bummers health care. Legislation to change this cannot come to soon! There are tons of examples where they have bullied and intimidated taxpayers. Over thirty years ago, a cousin who was a stock broker had a female IRS employee say this to him over the phone, “Mr. …….., we knowz yuuuz gots… Read more »

We may see even more “groups” targeted. Like Boy scouts and YMCA’s and pretty much anything that stands for self-reliance and personal responsibility. Pastors are already being targeted and churches. Gun clubs and Gun stores have been targeted. What do all these have in common? Think about it.
