Mitch Daniels’ Choice
by

The Indiana House of Representatives voted 66 to 32 for a bill that stiffens the state’s abortion restrictions and defunds Planned Parenthood. Will Gov. Mitch Daniels sign it, veto it, or allow it to become law without his signature? If he plans to run for president in 2012, this is the first test of whether his “truce” on social issues is rhetorical or substantive.

Further complicating matters for Daniels is the belief that cutting off state funding for Planned Parenthood could run afoul of federal statutes preventing states from selectively allocating funds to agencies that service Medicaid recipients, potentially costing the state Medicaid dollars. Daniels recently told Laura Ingraham that “ours has been without question the most pro-life administration in our state’s history.”

UPDATE: Planned Parenthood is not suprisingly asking Daniels to veto, claiming perversely that not giving them government money will lead to bigger government.
