The leading center for scholarly reflection within the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition
Carter Snead, director of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture and professor in the Notre Dame Law School, issued a response to Thursday's decision by U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt to issue a preliminary injunction against Indiana House Bill 1337, which prohibits abortion based on a diagnosis of disability, sex, race, or national origin.
Current and future pro-life advocates and leaders from North America, South America, and Europe gathered on the campus of the University of Notre Dame for a week-long "pro-life boot camp" at the Center for Ethics and Culture's annual Vita Institute, June 18-25. Participants studied the fundamentals of life issues with world-renowned scholars across a wide range of disciplines including social science, biology, philosophy, theology, law, neonatology, and fertility counseling.
CNN has published an op-ed by CEC director Carter Snead in which he responds to the Supreme Court's decision striking down key provisions of Texas House Bill 2, which he had provided expert testimony in support of. "The Supreme Court's decision in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt marks a dramatic escalation in the controversial jurisprudence of abortion," Snead writes.
