FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- By a vote of 35 to 13, the Indiana Senate approved a bill Wednesday that would cut funding to Planned Parenthood and result in Indiana having some of the country's tightest abortion regulations.

Opponents of the bill say the health-care and lives of thousands of Hoosier women would be at risk.

The measure now moves to the house.
