Even Judges Were Once Embryos

Over at Volokh Conspiracy, quoting Charles Lane of WashPo:

To be sure, when people hear the words "Supreme Court justice" these days, they probably do not think "youth." The youngest justice is Clarence Thomas, 56. The eight others are 65 or older. Yet each of them was once a child.

Connecting this observation to another ever-so-slightly controversial current issue, each of the current Supremes was also once an embryo. Who knows if they'd even be here, if their mothers had carried them in a post Roe v. Wade world! Craziness!

(Sorry, I don't have any documentary proof that the judges were once embryos. You'll have to take my word for it.)
