Listen to the Episode


From The Official Website:

In Episodes 7 and 8, we discussed a recent decision by a federal court in Missouri dismissing a lawsuit brought by the Satanic Temple challenging certain Missouri laws that arguably restrict abortion rights. In this episode, we take a step back and look at the right to abortion itself and the sometimes-controversial Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade.

Our opening segment answers a listener question from Russ Kanjorski about the future of the Supreme Court, and fan favorite “Closed Arguments” continues with a look at the Cato Institute’s survey and ranking of states by “freedom.” (Hint: it has nothing to do with actual freedom, apparently.).

Show Notes & Links

  1. Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973).
  2. The Cato Institute’s stupid “Freedom in the 50 States” survey.
