Even after the United States Supreme Court overruled Roe V. Wade and declared that killing an unborn child is not a constitutionally protected right of women, the most extreme leftists remain unconvinced that the issue will ever be resolved. The Marxist left sees it as partially acceptable to kill unborn children. One activist judge is using the situation for political gain.
Just days following the most recent election, a court in Georgia declared that prohibiting the killing of children was in violation of the Constitution. This occurs in the same state as the Georgia Department of Revenue recently issued guidance stating that beginning on July 20, 2022, a fetus will qualify as a dependent for tax purposes for Georgia residents. There is a dispute right now.
August’s NPR report stated:
“Pregnant Georgians can now list their fetus as a dependent on their tax returns. The Georgia Department of Revenue released new guidance this week establishing that the agency “will recognize any unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat … as eligible for the Georgia individual income tax dependent exemption.”
“An individual at least six weeks pregnant on or after July 20 through Dec. 31, 2022, can list the fetus as a dependent on their tax returns starting next year, the agency said. Georgian taxpayers can claim an exemption in the amount of $3,000 for each dependent,” according to NPR, which also stated:
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in June to reverse Roe v. Wade and repeal the right to an abortion led to this policy change. Beyond that, on July 20, an appeals court determined that Georgia’s prohibition on abortion after the sixth week of pregnancy might become a law.
Here are the locations where abortions are currently outlawed or severely restricted, as well as potential future locations. Taxpayers must provide the department with the necessary medical documents or other supporting paperwork to confirm their filing.
The notion that a fetus has complete constitutional rights from the moment of fertilization is known as the “fetal personhood law.” This was established in the abortion statutes of both Georgia and Arizona, however Arizona’s statute has been challenged in court.
According to Elizabeth Nash, the lead policy associate for state issues at the Guttmacher Institute, this change in tax policy has far-reaching effects on everything “from taxes and inheritance rights to education to population counts.”

And then a judge came along and acted like an activist:
“Georgia’s six-week abortion ban overturned as unconstitutional. Judge rules state’s ban on terminations once ‘detectable human heartbeat’ present violated US constitution at the time it was enacted,” the Guardian reported, adding:
“A judge overturned Georgia’s ban on abortion starting around six weeks into a pregnancy, ruling on Tuesday that it violated the US constitution and US supreme court precedent when it was enacted.” CONTINUE READING…
