It has become an annual tradition at Notre Dame Law School for O. Carter Snead, a professor of law and the William P. and Hazel B. White director of the Center for Ethics and Culture, to deliver a presentation on American abortion law and the U.S. Supreme Court.

On Wednesday, his one-hour overview of the jurisprudence of U.S. abortion law took on a particularly timely significance as it coincided with the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

“These issues,” Snead said, “are going to drive a lot of the conversations and debates among the senators as they deliberate over their choice to vote for or against Judge Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.”
