The Catholic Association filed a brief in a major upcoming Supreme Court case addressing our nation’s outdated abortion laws. The Supreme Court will hear Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case which presents a tremendous opportunity to challenge the status quo in abortion jurisprudence. Oral arguments are expected during the fall term and will address the constitutionality of a 2018 Mississippi pro-life law limiting abortions performed after 15 weeks.

TCA’s Policy Advisor, Dr. Grazie Christie, co-authored an amicus brief alongside other female doctors in support of the Mississippi law based on their expertise as medical professionals. The brief argues, “If the Court’s abortion jurisprudence purports to rely on science, it should at least rely on modern science. But Casey effectively declared all scientific developments irrelevant and the viability line absolute, even though Casey itself relied on evolving science in declaring Roe’s trimester framework rigid and unworkable.”
