On July 29, 2022, EPPC Fellow Carter Snead filed a friend-of-the-court brief with his colleague Mary Ann Glendon. The brief argues against the constitutionality of previability abortions by appealing to abortion jurisprudence’s alienation from the text, history, or tradition of the US Constitution, considers stare decisis‘ principles in justifying the overturn of Roe v. Wade, and positively argues for the essential unconstitutionality of elective abortion because of its unwarranted effect on an indisputably human life.
Carter Snead, a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, is an internationally recognized expert in the field of law and bioethics. His specific areas of expertise include stem-cell research, human cloning, assisted reproduction, neuroscience, abortion, end-of-life matters, and research involving human subject.
