(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana officials who want to cut funding to Planned Parenthood say the organization could solve the issue by simply splitting its abortion business into a separate affiliate.

But officials in states where Planned Parenthood has done that say it isn't an answer and that the organization could quickly find itself under new pressures as social conservatives target abortion providers across the nation.

Indiana and Planned Parenthood have been locked in a legal battle since Gov. Mitch Daniels in May signed a law cutting off funding to the group.

Planned Parenthood won a temporary injunction in June allowing it to continue receiving Medicaid money. Today, the case goes before the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
