Indiana Votes To Become The First State To Cut Federal Funding To Planned Parenthood

 Indiana has become the first state to cut government funding for Planned Parenthood. The House voted 66 to 32 Wednesday to approve a bill to cut 3-million dollars in federal cash the state distributes to the group. The measure also bans abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy unless there's a substantial threat to the woman's health. This bill already passed the Senate-- meaning if the state's governor, Mitch Daniels, signs off on it, it could impact how he is viewed if he runs for President. The bill is on Daniel's desk today.
