Law’s Jonathan Adler discusses the future of reproductive rights with a conservative Supreme Court

How to overcome a conservative Supreme Court and protect abortion rights

Chicago Tribune: Jonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, said that any court that would abandon a Supreme Court decision protecting abortion rights might be tempted to strike down a statute protecting them, but that “it would be hard to deny Congress the power to regulate here without also cutting back congressional power in other areas. And if a federal law protecting abortion rights were unconstitutional, laws like the federal partial-birth abortion ban would likely be unconstitutional too.”
