The University of Notre Dame has announced that Carter Snead, a law professor and director of the University's Center for Ethics and Culture, will keynote the annual National Right to Life Convention in Dallas tomorrow with an address titled, “Created Equal: Our Duty to Protect Innocent Human Life.”
According to the press release:
A member of the Notre Dame faculty since 2005, Snead specializes in the relationship between bioethics and the law. He is the former general counsel for the President’s Council on Bioethics, a White House advisory committee, and was the principal author of the council’s 2004 report on the regulation of new biotechnologies affecting assisted reproduction, human embryo research and genetics.
The lecture is an opportunity for Notre Dame to present one of its foremost pro-life faculty members, in the wake of the University's 2009 honors to President Barack Obama and more recent concerns about its consistency on Catholic values.
