Pro-life advocate testifies about IRS discrimination

A “cancer” in the IRS.

On Tuesday, the founder of Coalition for Life of Iowa testified before the House Ways and Means Committee.

According to the Thomas More Society, Susan Martinek testified about the IRS discrimination against her organization so that it “may not happen to others.” Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, acted as counsel for Martinek at the hearing.

According to Brejcha, “Coalition for Life of Iowa’s testimony today, coupled with the many other pro-life organizations we’ve represented against the IRS, make it undisputedly clear that pro-life organizations were systematically treated in an unfair and biased manner by the IRS.”

In her testimony, Martinek noted how her organization were told they had to assure the IRS, via a signed declaration, that they would not picket Planned Parenthood. If the organization signed the declaration, they would receive their determination letter from the IRS.

According to the Thomas More Center, New York Representative Charles Rangel, a liberal Democrat, spoke of a “cancer” inside the IRS.

Tea Party advocates and the chairman of the National Organization for Marriage also delivered testimony.
