“The Right Side of History” is a podcast dedicated to exploring current events through a historical lens and busting left-wing myths about figures and events of America’s past.

On this week’s episode, hosts Jarrett Stepman and Fred Lucas interview Kyle Sammin, a lawyer and writer from Pennsylvania, who recently compared the shifting philosophy of pro-abortion proponents to those who defended slavery in the early 19th century.

Sammin explains how a social situation, slavery, once treated as an unfortunate evil was turned into a “positive good,” by John C. Calhoun, a prominent Southern statesman, and why that matters to the abortion debate today.

    Considering the pro-abortion side’s recent lurch from “necessary evil” to “positive good” and that racism is still hugely divisive 182 years after Calhoun’s famous Senate Floor speech, this is an interesting and poignant analogy.
