I have copied and pasted your text, so the capital letters 'carry over'. "The divorce will hurt you more than IT WILL me". Correct. "Why can I go out in this shirt, but I CAN'T in that one" or "Why can I go out in this shirt, but I CAN'T GO OUT in that one". Both are correct. "It happens in all war zones but nowhere on the scale as IT is happening in Sudan".

I think it's a matter of style. In all cases, the omission is ok, as the reference is clear.
