An Oregon man is back in court this week after he refused to pay taxes because they fund the killing of unborn babies.
A lawyer for Michael E. Bowman, of Columbia City, said his client has deeply-held convictions against abortion, in part, because his own unborn child was aborted many years ago, The Oregonian reports. Matthew Schindler told a federal jury that when Bowman was a teenager, his pregnant girlfriend’s parents forced her to have an abortion, and he could do nothing to stop it.
Bowman - Christian - Income - Taxes - File
Bowman, a pro-life Christian, has refused to pay income taxes or file tax returns for more than two decades, National Review reported earlier this year. He repeatedly has made it very clear why: He believes unborn babies are valuable human beings, and killing them is wrong.
Bowman lives in Oregon, one of 16 states that forces its taxpayers to pay for elective abortions through its medical assistance program. Nationwide, taxpayers also give about half a billion dollars to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in the U.S.
Bowman - Victory - Court - Judge - Charges
In 2018, Bowman won a victory in court when a federal judge dismissed one of the charges against him: felony tax evasion, the Miami Herald reported at the time.
However, he still faces four misdemeanor tax charges, according to The Oregonian. His jury trial in the case began Monday in Portland.
