Christian Who Refuses to Pay Taxes Over Abortion Wins Major Court Victory


A Christian locked in a court battle with the Internal Revenue Service for his opposition on taxpayer-funded abortions has received a major victory.

Michael Bowman, a 53-year-old contract engineer who lives in Columbia City, Oregon, has refused to pay taxes, or even file a return, since 1999 due to his pro-life position. He stands with 60% of Americans against allocating public funds to abortion clinics.

“I’m not a tax protester. I love my country,” Bowman said to The Oregonian. “I have a duty to my country. I have a duty to my conscience.”

Due to his refusal to pay taxes from 2002-2014, the IRS has been on the attack. The Oregon Department of Revenue began garnishing wages directly from Bowman’s bank account in 2012. He responded by leaving only the minimum balance required in his account and cashing out all his paychecks.
