WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Brian Mast (FL-21) today introduced the No Tax Breaks for Radical Corporate Activism Act, which would prevent businesses from being able to write off travel expenses for employees who travel out of state for an abortion or gender transition procedures for an employee’s child.
“As millions of people gather in the nation’s capital to stand for life, it’s clear that woke corporations and their far-left allies in Washington are completely out of touch with the values of Americans,” said Rep. Mast. “Our government should not be using the money we earn to fund dangerous procedures on children or to abort babies.”
Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last year, it was reported that many corporations expanded benefits to cover travel expenses for employees to seek abortions and gender transition procedures for minors if the employee lived in a state where such practices are outlawed.
The No Tax Breaks for Radical Corporate Activism Act would deny the business expense deduction for the reimbursement of employee costs of travel to obtain an abortion or child gender transition procedures including but not limited to gender transition surgery, genital surgery, non-genital surgery, puberty blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones. The bill will divest American tax dollars from being used to fund the harming of children and killing of unborn babies.
The legislation is cosponsored by Representatives Dan Bishop (NC-09), Paul Gosar (AZ-09), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Matt Gaetz (FL-01), and Ralph Norman (SC-05).
