Exclusive: Recent Interaction with the outside world

Here is a recent email that I sent to the good guys at the TN senate office.


I have an idea that I would like for you to consider.

An abortion tax could have several major consequences for the state of Tennessee. It could augment the funding of several departments (education, adoption agencies, and the Tennessee foster care program). Also, it would price the cost of an abortion in Tennessee out of the competitive market. This means women looking for such a service might choose to go to another state because it would be cheaper.

Thanks for you time and I hope that you will consider my idea as a potential tactic for lessening the impact abortions have on society (at least in our state)

I would propose a 100 - 250 tax adjusted for inflation, this would be reasonable given that I was able to price an abortion for about 350 dollars.


PS. My reasoning is along these lines. It is bad for a society to kill it's young and old, although at this point we can't outlaw abortions, we can use the tax money generated to fund solutions.

Not a bad idea if I do say so myself.


Edit: Here is an link that I found.

Edit2: Some addition research yielded this.
