I don't particularly see the real benefit of overturning Roe - in terms of healing our country.  Nor do I believe that healing our country isn't needed and I disagree with the premise that our nation has always been divided as well. 

But the country has been divided since day one over one issue or another.  Hell, we were divided even before the Revolution with those who wanted independence and who wanted to remain a British colony.  Over our history, we have been divided over type of government, slavery, multiple wars, Prohibition and many more issues that are too numerous to list.

I would like to see something truly healing to our social divides, including the issue of abortion.  I have been with several young women having abortions.  Not one single one of them considered it to be an experience they cared to repeat.  It is invasive, painful, stigmatized and emotionally injurious.   

Right now, we have bigger problems than abortion so it's probably the furthest thing on the average voter's mind.  And frankly, abortions would never go away.  Even if birth conrtol is available and more people have knowledge of it, there will still be some around.
