Groundbreaking Pro-Life Legislation: Child Tax Credit Applicable To Unborn Children
WASHINGTON, D.C., November 30, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Groundbreaking legislation on behalf of the unborn has just been introduced in the U.S. Senate.
Montana Senator Steve Daines has just offered an amendment to the Senate’s tax reform bill which would make the Child Tax Credit (CTC) applicable to unborn children from the time of their conception.
“Moms and dads start planning and preparing for their baby’s birth as soon as they learn about their pregnancy,” Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, wrote in an email to supporters. He urged them to call their senators and ask them to expand the Child Tax Credit to children in utero.
“Parents take off time for doctor’s appointments, stock up on diapers, formula, clothes and swaddles,” Perkins explained. “And, they plan financially to take time from work to care for and bond with their baby.”
