Indiana abortion: Indiana opening new front in abortion battle - latimes.com
Reporting from Washington— Opening a new front in the battle over abortion, Indiana might soon become the first state to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood clinics — a move that could boost the presidential aspirations of Gov. Mitch Daniels while creating a dilemma for the Obama administration.
Federal law says Medicaid money cannot be used to pay for abortions. Indiana Republicans, however, say that paying for any medical services provided by a Planned Parenthood clinic supports the facility and therefore indirectly subsidizes abortions.
