Hey, remember how Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-IN) called for a truce on social issues a bunch of times? Apparently there was an asterisk no one noticed, because he's leading the way on the right's extreme social agenda:
And in Indiana, Governor Mitch Daniels signed a law yesterday that makes his state the first to ban all government funding for Planned Parenthood. The bill also imposes some of the nation's toughest restrictions on abortion. Planned Parenthood has clinics across the country and it receives funds through Medicaid and from government grants.
There has long been a prohibition against using federal money for abortions. But many Republicans say that paying for any services at Planned Parenthood indirectly subsidizes abortion.
While abortion is only a small fraction of the services Planned Parenthood provides, their other services are based around reproductive and sexual health, which, let's face it, are icky and will likely go away if we just pretend they don't exist.
Daniels, who was part of Bush's economic team, might run for president in 2012.
