For the record, 7 justices signed on to the Roe vs. Wade majority

And while it is true that members of the Supreme Court are not elected,
the President who appoints them and the Senators who confirm them are.

I am sympathetic to the case that this is a matter that should have been
left to the states; but if Roe vs. Wade were ever to be reversed, you do
realize that there is no way you would ever have abortion totally
outlawed in all states. California, for example, would almost certainly
retain very permissive laws.
