The constitutional implications of Donald Trump’s presidency are sprawling. One of the most enduring may be his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. In 2006, Gorsuch published his doctoral dissertation, a critique of the right to die – and in particular physician assisted suicide – based on the principle of the inviolability of life. Following an introduction, Prof. Carcieri shall present a critique of Gorsuch’s book using Rawlsian principles of justice. Prof. Carcieri is a Professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University.
