Measure to defund Planned Parenthood in Indiana now up to Gov. Daniels

On Wednesday, the Indiana House passed an abortion-restrictions bill, which last week was infused with several new amendments, one which effectively defunds abortion providers in the state by both canceling state funding for current contracts or grants to entities that perform abortions and by prohibiting future contracts or grants to such agencies.

The bill passed the House 66 to 32 and now heads to Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels’ desk. Daniels, a potential presidential contender for 2012, back in June 2010 told the Weekly Standard that the next president will have to focus on resolving economic issues and, in the meantime, “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues. We’re going to just have to agree to get along for a little while.” But now Daniels has been put in a position of either breaking that promise or alienating his party.

On Thursday morning, Daniels told The Indianapolis Star that the measure to defund family planning providers that also perform abortions in the state “has been attached to a bill I strongly supported. But we’ve got a little research to do.”

According to the Indy Star, House Bill 1210 would eliminate approximately $2 million of the $3 million Planned Parenthood receives annually in federal funding. Were the bill to be signed into law, Indiana would become the first state to prohibit the use of Medicaid at Planned Parenthood centers.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana is asking Daniels to veto “one of the worst pieces of public health legislation in Indiana’s history,” according to statement from the organization. “HB 1210 not only would require doctors to lie to women before an abortion, but it could also cost the State of Indiana millions of dollars.” PPIN says it will seek an injunction to keep the measure from being enforced.

Meanwhile in Kansas, lawmakers will soon be voting on a budget that would similarly defund abortion providers in the state, thanks to a line item in Gov. Sam Brownback’s 2012 proposed budget, which would redirect $300,000 in federal funds from Planned Parenthood to local and state health clinics, according to the Wichita Eagle. The budget would go into effect July 1.
