BREAKING: Georgia Residents Can Now Claim Unborn Children With Heartbeats As Dependents
The state of Georgia will now let residents claim unborn children as dependents on their taxes.
Thanks to the new determination from The Georgia Department of Revenue, residents can get back $3,000 for each unborn child with a beating heart according to Life News.
In other words, babies starting at 6 weeks can legally be declared dependents.
Many are dubbing this move another fascinating example of how the state of Georgia is showing that unborn babies are human beings who are worth legal protection. In addition to supporting families with tax advantages for bringing new life into the world.
Here is a snapshot of what the department had to say about its latest pro-life decision:
The Department will recognize any unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat, as defined in O.C.G.A. § 1-2-1, as eligible for the Georgia individual income tax dependent exemption…
The 11th Circuit’s ruling made HB 481’s amendment to O.C.G.A § 48-7-26(a), adding an unborn child with a detectable heartbeat to the definition of dependent…
As such, on individual income tax returns filed for Tax Year 2022 where, at any time on or after July 20, 2022, and through December 31, 2022, a taxpayer has an unborn child (or children) with a detectable human heartbeat (which may occur as early as six weeks’ gestation), the taxpayer may claim a dependent personal exemption as provided for under O.C.G.A § 48-7-26(a) and (b)(3) in the amount of $3,000.00 for each unborn child…
Since the Supreme Court struck down Roe V. Wade, Georgia has worked hard to ban the abortion of babies after 6 weeks. Ultimately removing the injunction against its Heartbeat Law.
Now that abortions are banned once a heartbeat is detected, the state is moving forward to incentivize parents to keep their babies with a $3,000 tax deduction.
Per Life News, “the federal appeals court has ruled that the heartbeat law can take effect and it ordered U.S. District Judge Steve Jones to retake the case and overturn his decision from 2020 that blocked the law from saving babies.”
It’s worth noting that the pro-life law still, however, allows abortions in very rare cases after the baby’s heart has begun beating. Examples include “rape, incest, if the life of the woman is in danger or in instances of ‘medical futility,’ when the baby would not be able to survive after birth.”
This news from yesterday marks a major step in the right direction for protecting life.
