Survivors of sexual violence should not have to prove anything to the IRS or anyone else! As Sheila asked, what does the IRS have ti do with rape cases? Signed and noted, thanks Robert.

I hope those debating this issue realise that, if passed, this would only increase victim's suffering and misery, and not only the victim's, but those close to her!

Signed. Sorry but at what point did some of succumb to the delusion that members of the Repug-Tea Bagged-Christian Taliban of America Alliance give a damn about the victims of rape. You do realize that these are the same religiously lobotomized yutzes that want to and have tried to redefine "rape", never seem to be able to find a single woman to sit on a hearing panel that involves women's rights and refuse to let women or any one that disagrees with their agenda testify before a Committee.

Signed so fast, my computer had to catch up!!
What is wrong with the teabaggers and religious right? Have they no scruples? A woman has to relive those moments enough without having to relive them for the frikkin IRS! What do they need to know for? That she paid her tax on what? That is all an IRS agent has to do with EVER! They have nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, to do with a rape investigation!
This is just another attempt at stopping women trying to get an abortion after they have been raped. They hope they will give up because she (the injured party), will not report it and therefore not be able to get an abortion because they will have the law fixed to where you can't get an abortion unless you have been raped!
You will see. It will all come back to abortion, sooner or later!! And the Teabaggers want to have it outlawed, unless you have been raped! Repuglicans! Sorry. Got crazy for a minute there. But, yeah, that's what they want.

Those Teabaggers are such hypocrites. They don't care about people, only their narrow views. Forcing women to go thru this is like getting assaulted again. If someone really cared about their religion, they'd realize that Love trumps all petty views.
