“Life After Dobbs” Episode 9: Patrick Brown and Henry Olsen on the Challenges of the post-Roe World

On the ninth episode of the Life After Dobbs podcast, Ryan and Alexandra hear from EPPC Fellow Patrick Brown and Senior Fellow Henry Olsen. Patrick uses his expertise in family economics to discuss the factors affecting the demand for abortion. He suggests policies that will shield struggling moms from poverty and support a society centered on healthy family life. Henry Olsen draws on his experience in American electoral politics to consider how Dobbs will affect the 2022 midterms and the place of pro-life policy in the realigning Republican coalition.
