The abortion debate keeps getting bigger and bigger. On May 25th, Oklahoma passed the strictest pro-life law in America banning all abortion procedures from conception. According to Justice Scalia’s dissent about the 10 Commandments in the courthouse, America has always been and should be a religious country which makes you wonder what role does religion place in daily life. Jack Russo and Rafael Chodos discuss the separation of church and state when it comes to a topic where religious and secular laws overlap.

Jack Russo asks Rafael Chodos how for-profit law firms will play into the development of secular law.
