Abandon plans to force women to prove they were raped before they get benefits
According to George Osborne’s budget, a woman who has a third child as the result of rape must justify her position in order to avoid losing tax credits.
This will mean a woman having to prove she was raped to a government official before she can get benefits.
In addition to the main problem with the policy outline above, the whole plan to restrict child tax credits to 2 children is nothing short of social engineering akin to a Chinese-style “two child policy” dictating to the public what sort of family life they should have.
