WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement after the Trump administration released its Protect Life Rule to amend the Title X family planning program:

“This is a good day for the cause of life. These changes will protect the unborn and prevent Title X taxpayer funds from being used to support abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. Just as vital, this will ensure that Title X health providers are not forced to choose between their patients and their conscience. We are pleased with this progress, and remain steadfast in our commitment to protecting life and religious liberty.”
