INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is poised to become the first state to cut all government funding for the Planned Parenthood organization. The move would be a significant victory for anti-abortion activists but pose a political risk for Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels as he considers running for president.

The Indiana House could vote as soon as today to cut off the $3 million in federal money the state distributes to the organization for family planning and health programs. The Senate approved the measure earlier this month.

Indiana would risk losing $4 million in Medicaid funds for indigent births and other care if Daniels signs the bill. But a veto could antagonize ardent conservatives already wary of Daniels' calls for a truce on "social issues" to focus on the economy..
