Daniels to sign controversial Planned Parenthood bill

Washington (CNN) - Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels said Friday he will sign a bill to cut off much of the federal funds aimed for Planned Parenthood's chapter in his state. The group had said the bill will eliminate key health services for many women in the state.

"I commissioned a careful review of access to services across the state and can confirm that all non-abortion services, whether family planning or basic women's health, will remain readily available in every one of our 92 counties," he said in a written statement.

LensCrafters v. Bachmann

Washington (CNN) – The optics don't look great for Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. That is, if you're talking about her relationship with LensCrafters, the one-stop shop of eye care and eyewear.

The possible GOP presidential candidate supported her belief that Planned Parenthood should lose its government funding by telling a crowd in Iowa on Monday, "The executive director of Planned Parenthood in Illinois said they want to become the LensCrafter of big abortion in Illinois."

Brown breaks with party on Planned Parenthood debate

Washington (CNN) - Republican Sen. Scott Brown said Tuesday he disagrees with the Republican House effort to cut off support for Planned Parenthood as part of the ongoing budget negotiations.

"I support family planning and health services for women. Given our severe budget problems, I don't believe any area of the budget is completely immune from cuts," the Massachusetts senator said in a statement. "However, the proposal to eliminate all funding for family planning goes too far. As we continue with our budget negotiations, I hope we can find a compromise that is reasonable and appropriate."

Cain: Planned Parenthood’s mission is 'planned genocide' of black babies

Washington (CNN) – Using unusually harsh words, a potential presidential candidate echoed some previous comments: claiming that Planned Parenthood’s original mission was to “help kill black babies before they came into the world.”

Herman Cain went on to say that the sexual and reproductive health care provider is carrying out its mission of “planned genocide.”

In response, the group said that Cain is using "inflammatory and divisive language based on race to achieve extreme political goals" of ending legal abortion.
