Dismantling Roe

by | Jul 10, 2022 | Abortion

Important lecture by Objectivist philosopher Onkar Ghate examining the reasoning and implications of SCOTUS overturning Roe vs Wade.

“If Samuel Alito’s leaked first draft of a potential majority decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a reliable indication, the Supreme Court will overturn (and may have already done so by the time of the conference) Roe v. Wade. Onkar Ghate will examine the arguments offered in Roe, good and bad, the vulnerabilities of the decision, and the case being made for its overturn.”

Recorded live on July 2, 2022, as part of the Objectivist Summer Conference.

Dr. Ghate is a resident fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute where he teaches in the Institute’s Objectivist Academic Center. He has lectured on philosophy and Objectivism throughout North America.
