Credo Action writes:
Republicans attack abortion rights whenever and wherever they can. Right now, it is through the Trump Tax Scam.
It is not enough that the bills moving through Congress would make deep cuts to the social safety net and raise taxes on middle- and lower-income families – all while giving Trump and his wealthy friends trillions in handouts. They would also strike an intentional blow to abortion rights by enshrining the language “unborn child” into the federal tax code. 
Senate Democrats must push back on this attack on women with everything they’ve got. They should be calling out Republicans’ attempt to inject anti-abortion politics into the tax code and pledging to block any tax bill that contains the unborn child provision. If we speak out now, we can make sure this issue does not get lost among all the other horrible things in the tax scam. Can you add your name today?
The article closes with a challenge:
Senate Democrats, along with any Republican with a conscience who cares more about women than party politics, must shut this latest attempt down. Help make sure they know we are expecting them to stand strong for women’s rights and block right-wing Republican extremists’ sneak attack on abortion.
