WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after President Trump signed H.J. Res. 43 into law:

“I am proud to support the sanctity of life and to continue to be a strong voice for the right to life. States will now no longer be forced to use Title X money to fund Planned Parenthood or other entities that provide abortions. I believe states should be able to consider whether or not an organization provides abortions when granting them taxpayer funding, and I thank President Trump and Rep. Diane Black for their leadership on this important piece of legislation.”
