Roe v. Wade: Privacy and Liberty | The U.S. Supreme Court [Video]

The Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade declared a right to an abortion as part of a right to privacy—a term not found in the Constitution. The Court’s second landmark decision on the issue, Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), gave abortion rights a new grounding in an understanding of liberty that marked an explicit rejection of the Founders’ belief in an unchanging human nature. In this lecture from Hillsdale College’s 2017 FREE online course, “The U.S. Supreme Court,” Dr. Adam Carrington reveals how the Supreme Court arrived at these novel readings that departed so significantly from the Founders’ understanding of natural rights, liberty, morality, and the purpose of government.To enroll in this FREE online course, click the link below:https://online.hillsdale.edu/landing/the-us-supreme-court?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=the_supreme_court_oc&utm_content=roe_v._wade&utm_term=5/3/22Support Hillsdale College: https://secured.hillsdale.edu/hillsdale/support-hillsdale-collegeVisit our website: http://hillsdale.eduLearn from our online courses: http://online.hillsdale.eduRead Imprimis: https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/Undergraduate programs: https://www.hillsdale.edu/information-for/undergraduate-admissions/Graduate School of Statesmanship: https://www.hillsdale.edu/academics/graduate-school/Graduate School of Government: https://dc.hillsdale.edu/School-of-Government/Program-Overview/Listen to Hillsdale Dialogues Podcast: http://blog.hillsdale.edu/online-coursesHillsdale College is an independent institution of higher learning founded in 1844 by men and women “grateful to God for the inestimable blessings” resulting from civil and religious liberty and “believing that the diffusion of learning is essential to the perpetuity of these blessings.” It pursues the stated object of the founders: “to furnish all persons who wish, irrespective of nation, color, or sex, a literary, scientific, [and] theological education” outstanding among American colleges “and to combine with this such moral and social instruction as will best develop the minds and improve the hearts of its pupils.” As a nonsectarian Christian institution, Hillsdale College maintains “by precept and example” the immemorial teachings and practices of the Christian faith.The College also considers itself a trustee of our Western philosophical and theological inheritance tracing to Athens and Jerusalem, a heritage finding its clearest expression in the American experiment of self-government under law.By training the young in the liberal arts, Hillsdale College prepares students to become leaders worthy of that legacy.
