You reference this passage as if it was absolute. It is not, and has never been so.

There has always been a tension between federal and state legislation, because the size and diversity of this nation creates problems our founding fathers could not have foreseen.
More political whining.

Of course, as we all know, they left behind a legislative branch to take care of things that they did not foresee.

IOW, it doesn't matter what the Constitution says; it matters what we want it to say. The job of judges should be to interpret the law not make up their own. That's why we vote legislators in for that are responsible to their voters. The current SCOTUS undid what the previous court had no business in doing and that was legislating what didn't exist in the Constitution. The same goes for gay marriage which is next on the agenda.
No, it matters what those charged with interpreting the Constitution think it says. The current SCOTUS interpreted it differently to the previous one. YOU say the previous court had no business doing their job, which is nonsense.

It is sicking, the minority wants it their way or else. Never mind the precedent that it sets (i.e a judiciary with unbridled power to interpret that law as they see fit) just as long as they get their way in the short run. If they were a majority they could vote in legislators and get the laws changed.
The MINORITY wants it their way or else - and is getting it. Repeated surveys show that the majority wants abortion to be legal. Conservatives don't care - they live to impose their minority viewpoint on everybody else. They've jerry-rigged the entire system to do it and in the process are ruining the country. Well done, Republicans.

If you believe that then heed Alito's statement: “Opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Hopefully, state-by-state popular votes will bring each state's stance on the matter back into line with popular opinion.

And as for ruining the country, they voted for Trump. ^This more is akin to urinating on the ashes.

There's a website that posted political affiliation based upon county rather than state, and it turned almost the entire map red. Popular opinion isn't necessarily the right opinion...
