Under no circumstances should it be a federal law either for or against. It is not within the federal government’s power to make such a law.
I disagree. Any law regulating abortion is ultimately regulating the ability of people to contract for abortion services, and it’s arguably within the scope of the federal government’s powers to regulate — the commerce clause says so. The federal government clearly can write a law saying that it’s not permissible for a state to prohibit doctors from offering and performing abortion services.
I think the idea that the individual states are somehow “ultimately” sovereign, as they were prior to the ratification of the Constitution, and were even in the early days of the republic is ridiculous and outdated. I think it’s an attempt to get a free ride on the efforts of others.
