Rep. Robert Pittenger

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) and other leaders of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus met with House Speaker Paul Ryan (WI-01) to discuss key pro-life provisions in proposed legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare.


“Both the American Health Care Act and the Senate’s proposed health care reform include major victories for the pro-life community, defunding Planned Parenthood and keeping your tax dollars from being used to support abortion,” said Congressman Pittenger.  “We are grateful for Speaker Ryan’s pro-life leadership, and met today to discuss the importance of retaining these provisions in the final bill.  As a committed pro-life leader, I will keep this issue at the forefront.”
