US congress could do more than pass a law making abortion legal - a law which would be immediately repealed as soon as republicans get into office.
Enough states have now ratified the Equal Rights Amendment that it could become part of the US Constitution. That would unquestionably give abortion rights the power of constitutional law.
The ratifications came late, but congress has the power to retroactively extend the deadline.
This could happen tomorrow.
@celesteh SCOTUS would still ignore it though, like the rest of the constitution.
