Here's how we fixed slavery -
Amendment 13 - Slavery Abolished. Ratified 12/6/1865. |
1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
If you want something country-wide, amend the constitution. Roe v Wade depends on the personality of justices in the Supreme Court. A constitutional amendment takes three-fourths of states to vote yes. Sounds do-able to me.
