In a piece published by News Week, TCA’s Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie gives Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor a lesson in developing human life. She writes:

“During oral arguments, Justice Sotomayor displayed abysmal ignorance of the most basic scientific and medical facts about developing human life.

Our brief and others document the medical and scientific advances Mr. Stewart was referring to, in language easily accessible to lay people and rigorously sourced in the latest scientific journals and currently accepted medical practices. It’s there for anyone with eyes—or the will—to see.

The Court invites amicus briefs—and we submit them—so that parties with different competences can inform the Justices about developments in areas outside the purview of constitutional law. And that’s why it’s a shame that, in a landmark case involving whether human lives can be ended electively, a Supreme Court Justice would stick to outdated science and withered old misconceptions.”
