Group Told to Promote Abortion

A U.S. senator confronted the acting director of the Internal Revenue
Service today with charges that the agency targeted pro-life groups with discrimination.
As LifeNews reported, the Internal Revenue Service was also targeting a pro-life Iowa group
that acts in part as a watchdog over the Planned Parenthood abortion
business. It was refusing to grant nonprofit tax status to the Coalition for Life of Iowa unless it
agreed to limit its “picketing” and “protesting” of Planned Parenthood.
In papers to the group, the IRS
questioned the “educational” nature of the Coalition’s materials, prayer meetings, talks and other pro-life activities.
Today, Sen. Charles Grassley, an
Iowa Republican confronted outgoing IRS Acting Commission Steven Miller
about the discrimination. From CNS News:

to go. However, it will not be approved until you send a letter signed
by your entire board under penalty of perjury saying that you will not
protest at Planned Parenthood,’” Grassley said at a Senate Finance
Committee hearing on the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.

>In addition to the order that the group promise not to protest Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest
prayer meeting,” he said.

>“Now stop to think about it – the government getting involved in somebody having a prayer meeting. It appears that the IRS essentially offered this group a quid pro quo –
Parenthood, generally speaking so you don’t have to worry about 6103,”
Miller said he could not speak to the specific organization in question but apologized on behalf of the agency.
