Proving rape to the IRS

Can you call Rep. McCarthy? Tell her to vote no on H.R. 3 tomorrow and stop this radical assault on a woman's right to choose.

Report Your Call!
Dear MoveOn member,

The House is set to vote Wednesday on a bill that could force rape and incest survivors to prove to the IRS that they were assaulted.1

It's beyond outrageous, it's horrifying.

And to make matters worse, the bill would impose tax penalties on small businesses and many individuals who buy abortion coverage with their own money—with exceptions only for cases of rape, incest, and when a woman's life is in danger.Their goal is to make abortion coverage unaffordable. 

We've already stopped the radical anti-choice legislators from redefining rape. Now we have to win this critical battle in the "War on Women." It will take a flood of calls to stop this assault that could set women's right to choose back by decades. 

The vote is tomorrow, Wednesday—can you pick up the phone right now and call Representative Carolyn McCarthy? Tell her: "Vote no on H.R. 3's radical assault on a woman's right to choose."

Here's where to call:

Representative Carolyn McCarthy
Phone: 202-225-5516
