Ben Franklin: "Nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes"

The Department of Health and Human Services recently issued guidance for a 2002 law that mandates care for fetuses “born alive” naturally or in the process of an abortion. Prior to the guidance, a miscarriage prior to viability was classified as a spontaneous abortion. Now it is recorded as a live birth followed by a neonatal death, and parents can claim the child as a tax deduction for that year.
