The Internal Revenue Service has proposed new rules for political activity by nonprofits —overturning more than 50 years of settled law– in order to conceal the true political record of pro-abortion politicians.
The IRS proposal will undermine the ability of certain (“C-4″) tax-exempt nonprofits to conduct
- nonpartisan voter registration and
- voter education.
Such organizations advocating for the unborn, like Kansans for Life and the National Right to Life Committee, would be
forbidden to leave records of officeholder votes and public statements on their websites in the two months before an election.
In other words, during the small, premiere window of time that the general populace is paying attention to elections, pro-abortion politicians’ records would be locked away! Read details by former Federal Elections Commission Chair Bradley Smith here.
NRLC, and affiliates like KFL, are invaluable for informing the public about the positions of candidates, including those nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court! The Obama team sees pro-life organizations as a threat and want to muzzle those views. It’s that simple.
NRLC has issued a nationwide alert to raise a storm of public protest against these regulations, to make it as hard as possible for the IRS to give final approval.
We need to educate the American people that it seems every group that opposes Obama’s policies is now under threat of having their most fundamental rights taken away. The use of the IRS as a political weapon has to stop!
