Indiana Governor Says Hell Sign Legislation To Strip Planned Parenthood Of Federal Cash In His State

05.02.11 | Sarah Harnisch

  Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels says he will sign off on the legislation that strips abortion provider Planned Parenthood of its federal funding. If he does so, Indiana will be the first state in the union to do so. Daniels said he supported the abortion restrictions from the outset and that the provision added to defund abortion providers did not change his mind. He said women's health, family planning and other services will remain available. Already approved by the state House and Senate, the bill is expected to arrive on his desk before Friday this week.
