Main Topic The Politics of Un-Planned Parenthood 27 MIN, 31 SEC

The Politics of Un-Planned ParenthoodRoe versus Wade legalized abortions in 1973.  But the argument over the "right to choose" versus the "right to life" is still not decided. In Texas, Ohio, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma and other states, conservative legislatures elected last year are considering proposals designed to restrict abortion.  Indiana is about to become the first state in the nation to deny public funds to Planned Parenthood, if Governor (and prospective presidential candidate) Mitch Daniels makes good on his promise to sign House Bill 1210. We hear about the torrent of proposed abortion restrictions in state legislatures around the country.
