Would a federal Law legalizing abortion survive the Supreme Court?

“Leading Democrats have announced they want a federal statute overruling state laws that restrict abortion. In other words, they want Congress to legalize nearly unrestricted abortion nationwide. Obviously, such a law would intrude into an area of social policy traditionally left to the states. Would the law pass muster in the Supreme Court? The court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health … would be no barrier to a national abortion law. … Congress would rest its pro-abortion statute on at least four powers the Constitution assigns to it.” (07/29/22)
