For many years, the Ayn Rand Institute has led the world in offering rational philosophic support for a woman’s right to abortion. Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, the Objectivist perspective on that crucial issue is needed more than ever. This article gathers the available resources in one place, to help defenders of individual rights understand the philosophic errors that led to Roe’s demise. That’s the first step toward reaching a day when the Supreme Court can uphold the right to abortion on proper grounds for the first time.
