This Republican behavior is so crazy, I almost couldn’t write a limerick about it.
Republican lawmakers in Michigan, a state which eliminated tax credits for children last year, have proposed a tax credit for unborn foetuses of 12 weeks gestation…
Critics said the proposal was “absurd” and described it as a backdoor way of trying to pass “personhood” legislation which would give rights to an embryo and crack down on abortion.
The irony-impaired Rep. Jud Gilbert, R-Algonac said:
“You’re recognizing the fact that people have additional expenses, another person to take care of.”
Michigan’s Fetal Shenanigans (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
A Republican law now forbids
Tax credits for Michigan kids,
But those same pols want credits
For fetuses. Bet it’s
A product of brains on the skids.
