In “The Future of Abortion Law,” James Wilson Institute Founder and Director Hadley Arkes joins Richard Reinsch on The Daily Signal Podcast to discuss abortion jurisprudence. Professor Arkes asserts that the main pitfall of the Dobbs majority opinion is that it treats the personhood of the unborn as subjective. He then explains the role of the 14th Amendment in preserving unborn life, the merits of substantive due process, and more. In conclusion, Professor Arkes remarks upon the dissenting opinion in Dobbs.
