Branstad May Be Forced to Approve Abortion Funding

"Catholic, anti-abortion Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad could soon find himself in an uncomfortable position: He may have to sign off on payments for every Medicaid-funded abortion in his state," the AP reports.

"A bill requiring that authorization is sitting on the Republican's desk after moving through the statehouse. If Branstad signs it, Iowa is likely to be the only state that would have the unique requirement."

Meanwhile, a new Des Moines Register poll finds Branstad with a 54% approval rate and way ahead in possible re-election match ups with Democratic challengers.
