WASHINGTON – The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, praised Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who announced today that he will not seek reelection to Congress.

“Speaker Paul Ryan has been a dedicated ally in the fight to protect the most vulnerable members of our society,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.

Throughout his career in the U.S. House of Representatives, and in his tenure as speaker, he has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the cause of life. Paul Ryan has a 100% pro-life voting record over nearly 20 years in Congress, and as speaker has presided over passage of numerous pieces of legislation including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, as well as various measures to ensure that taxpayer dollars do not support abortions or fund abortion providers.

All of us in the right-to-life movement are grateful to Speaker Ryan for his leadership in our common cause of working for the day when all members of the human family are protected by our nation’s laws.
