Passing a law keeping abortion legal won’t help

I doubt they could pass a law in Congress that wouldn’t get killed by a Republican filibuster. Even if they did, the Supreme Court would strike it down. Nothing good will happen without turnover or expanding the court. I am not worried about polarization as a reason to not do something. Republicans don’t care about it. They don’t care about the reputation of the court. They only care about getting their way. I doubt the country could be more polarized than it is today. Democratic strategy (if there is one) and messaging has been poor. They are in reactive mode. DOJ should have said something BEFORE states passed restrictive laws.
