Here's the thing: they don't care about which constitutional right the right to an abortion is enumerated under. They don't believe in a pregnant person's right to choose so no matter how the government grants it (as a constitutional right, or as a matter of congressional law) they will always fight it. If they pass a law the Supreme Court will overturn it.
The fact of the matter is that the conservative legal project has been wildly successful and the democrats have done nothing to get in the way. There are 70 federal courts without a sitting judge right now. Seventy. There's no good reason why Biden isn't packing the court with pro-life judges. There are plenty. But their constant inaction and hesitancy toward any action (because if they do it then the "Republicans will do it too!" never mind decades of Republicans doing whatever the fuck they want) proves them all to be fucking cowards.
This isn't even mentioning the way that the Dems are currently gunning for an anti-choice candidate OVER one who is more progressive and pro-choice. It's fucking bullshit to think that it's the fault of the people for not voting hard enough.
liberals are already talking about voting harder and blaming people who didn't vote for Clinton in swing states. Like does Biden not currently have control of the house and senate right now this very second? Also let's lay some blame on Ruth "who better than me" Bader Ginsberg for not retiring because fuck her and her fucking vanity ass bullshit.
oh, naw, I'm being serious. she should have retired during obama's first term. she'd already had cancer twice at that point. by the time people were calling for her to retire she said that there was no one but her who could hold the seat. she was so determined to secure her legacy that she rode out one term too many. it was pure arrogance on her part.
