INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An attorney for the state of Indiana told a federal appeals court that Planned Parenthood could end a dispute over a new state law cutting off some funding for Planned Parenthood by separating its abortion business from its health service operations.Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher told the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago Thursday that the only way to ensure that there's "no cross-subsidy" where taxpayer dollars end up funding abortions is for Planned Parenthood to separate its operations into two entities.The legal skirmish began in May when Gov. Mitch Daniels signed sweeping abortion restrictions into law, making Indiana the first state to deny the organization Medicaid funds for general health services.Planned Parenthood won a temporary injunction in June allowing it to continue receiving the funds.
