FILE - In this Jan. 15, 2014 file photo is Republican Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad in West Des Moines, Iowa. Iowa's GOP-led House and the Democratic-controlled Senate put Branstad personally in charge of signing off on any payments for publicly funded abortions. About seven months later Branstad hasn't approved any payments but patients eligible for Medicaid-funded abortions received them anyway because the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics simply decided not to bill the state for the procedures.
