IRS officials refused to grant tax exempt status two pro-life organizations because of their position on the abortion issue, according to a non-profit law firm, which said that one group was pressured not to protest a pro-choice organization that endorsed President Obama during the last election.
In one case, the IRS withheld approval of an application for tax exempt status for Coalition for Life of Iowa. In a phone call to Coalition for Life of Iowa leaders on June 6, 2009, the IRS agent Ms. Richards told the group to send a letter to the IRS with the entire boards signatures stating that, under perjury of the law, they do not picket/protest or organize groups to picket or protest outside of Planned Parenthood, the Thomas More Society announced today. Once the IRS received this letter, their application would be approved.
Planned Parenthood endorsed Obama in 2008 and 2012.
The IRS also pressured another pro-life group about its religious activities. The IRS withheld approval of an application for charitable tax-exempt recognition of Christian Voices for Life, questioning the groups involvement with 40 Days for Life and Life Chain events, according to the law firm. The Fort Bend County, Texas, organization was subjected to repeated and lengthy unconstitutional requests for information about the viewpoint and content of its educational communications, volunteer prayer vigils, and other protected activities.
The IRS admitted last week to that some members of the agency targeted Tea Party groups for discriminatory reviews of their applications for tax-exempt status. The Justice Department has initiated a criminal investigation into the matter.

Sounds like the IRS has become an enforcer of any petty thug or killer that wants to silence and terrorize their enemies. They need to be entirely shut down and those responsible for this sent to prison.
It is a tyrannical thing to put health care under the IRS.
