Hadley Arkes on the Law as a Moral Teacher of the Culture

Hadley Arkes, the founder of the James Wilson Institute on Natural Rights and the American Founding, was the architect of the Born-Alive Infants’ Protection Act, signed into law in 2002. 

A follow-up bill, known as the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, passed the House in 2018 but was not taken up in the Senate during that session of Congress.

Mr. Arkes is a professor emeritus at Amherst College and the author of Natural Rights and the Right to Choose (2002) and Constitutional Illusions and Anchoring Truths: The Touchstone of the Natural Law (2010), both published by Cambridge University Press.

This address was recorded at a November 2019 event hosted by the American Principles Project Foundation. It has been abridged slightly for this podcast.
