What a pathetic, arrogant jackass...I really hate resorting to name-calling, but come on...if this worthless loser had to carry a baby to term, he would be first in line for an abortion...he would be looking for ways to increase funding for Planned Parenthood and his religious beliefs would be in the back seat with it's mouth duck-taped...The republicans and religious right think they know what's best for everyone...as long as the rich get richer and the poor keep getting hoodwinked and scared out of their votes, this will continue...we DO NOT need religion connected to our laws...in theocracies the leaders use religion to justify any wrong doing...I'm sick of being told what's best for me and especially for women, by arrogant leaders who feel god is showing them the way...give me a break!!!

This won't stop abortions it will just make them go underground and become unsafe. In fact, there will be a rise in the number of abortions because PP does more than that. They educate people on contraceptive use and sometimes even provide free contraceptives. Idiana is run by morons.

When he loses the $4 million in federal funds, I wonder how he will spin it to be a good thing, especially with his eye on the white house?

Keep in mind that he isn't doing this for religious reasons, but purely for political support. He sees the teabaggers as his ticket to power. He is, if anything, an acolyte of bush 1, who renounced any personal ideals he might have had to embrace the ideals of those who would take him to the white house.

What's the world coming to when Indiana lawmakers and Mitch Daniels aren't smiling benignly on Proscribed Parenthood's serial lawbreaking? Moral equilibrium, that's what.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/may/... -- Hoosier daddy now?

"... The results we discovered in Indiana were particularly shocking. I posed as a 13-year-old girl impregnated by my 31-year-old “boyfriend” and seeking a secret abortion so no one would find out about the abusive relationship. Faced with this clear case of sexual exploitation of a minor, Planned Parenthood’s Bloomington clinic nurse told me,“I didn’t hear the age, OK? I don’t know the age” and coached me to tell anyone who asked about my “boyfriend,”“He’s 14 and in your grade, or whatever.” On the same day, the Planned Parenthood counselor in the Indianapolis abortion clinic told me,“I don’t care how old he is” and coached me on how to keep the sexual relationship with the 31-year-old a secret from my parents. Both clinics advised going to abortion centers out of state to skirt Indiana’s parental consent law.

"In 2009, Live Action also released undercover footage [ http://liveaction.org/rosa-acuna/indianapolis... ] of Planned Parenthood in Indiana offering grossly inaccurate medical misinformation to pressure women into choosing abortion. Most recently, in February, we released videos of Planned Parenthood clinics in multiple states aiding and abetting the purported sex traffickers of girls as young as 14 and 15.

"Planned Parenthood has never publicly acknowledged guilt for these egregious violations of state law and young women’s safety, instead opting to scapegoat individual workers and treat their violations as isolated incidents....

"... as Planned Parenthood of Indiana increases its abortion numbers, nearly 80 federally qualified health centers across the state provide a full range of comprehensive health care services to women, men and children and serve patients regardless of their ability to pay. Compare that to just 28 Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana, which offer a limited range of “family planning” services and do not treat patients for free."

Since the girl wasn't a minor, there was no breaking of any law. Medical people are very good at establishing age.

Daniels hit the dissembling blowhards where they live:

Allahpundit writes: "Daniels' message to Planned Parenthood as the screaming begins:“Any organization affected by this provision can resume receiving taxpayer dollars immediately by ceasing or separating its operations that perform abortions.” Exactly. We’re constantly assured by the left that abortions are only the teeny-tiniest insignificant little part of the services that PP provides. Should be easy for them to go cold turkey, then, if they’re keen on that Medicaid money."

If it so eagerly covets government bailouts, Precluded Parenthood will have to divide into two entities:

Planned PARENTHOOD (No, Honestly, We Really Mean It This Time)

and

Slaughterhouses 'R' Us

No government funding goes to abortions, idiot. You and daniels are just morons who obviously don't know how ACCOUNTING works. Its abortion funds are already separate from the rest of its structure.

So, when the federal funding for ALL family planning is cut, where is that money coming from?

I take it, from your 3rd-grade quips regarding PP's name, that you are against people actually making decisions as to when they have kids? Guess women should just be pregnant whenever, huh--and without access to affordable health care?
