    State legislators in Michigan held a hearing on Tuesday to consider House Bills 5684 and 5685, which would allow taxpayers to receive tax relief for unborn fetuses past 12 weeks’ gestation. The proposed legislation is an odd push for Michigan Republicans, partly because Progress Michigan notes the state slashed tax credits for children last year — meaning that although parents living in Michigan do not qualify for additional tax breaks to offset the cost of caring for their own children, they could soon be able to claim a tax credit for an unborn fetus.

    So now women can claim they are pregnant with triplets to get a triple tax credit. Then miscarry just before delivery. Repeat over & over. Women will never have to pay taxes again. Who says republicans hate women?

    Maybe Liberals will open an exchange and trade Unborn Fetus futures.

    From the link:

    Progress Michigan’s executive director points out that the proposed legislation is a dangerous step toward endowing fetuses with the same rights as human beings while disregarding the real economic needs of Michigan’s children, 341,000 of whom currently live in high-poverty areas:

    Republicans have some screwed up priorities.

    Ha! A tax credit for your fetus, but not for the child you have to feed and clothe.

    Classy.
