CWN Editor's Note: The National Catholic Register published an additional article focusing on comments made by Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.

Helen Alvaré, a law professor at George Mason University and a member of the Vatican’s Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, commented that “the oral argument was promising for the pro-life cause, but it would be impossible to cram into the few minutes of an oral argument all the reason, facts, principles, analyses — and hopes — of 50 years of pro-life argumentation. There was no time to call out abortion advocates’ lies, more lies, and made-up statistics. . . . God willing, the briefs of Mississippi and dozens of ‘friends of the court’ will fill in the gaps and the right decision will issue next June.”
