The White House on Thursday urged Indiana to back off a new law that would withhold taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, setting up a clash with the state after formally declaring its policy illegal.

They both said they expect Indiana to comply, declining to say whether the administration would withhold federal money should Indiana defy the order.
