Is “Roe v. Wade” REALLY about abortion?

I don’t agree with the author, Kit Knightly, on his view regarding abortion, but he makes an important point in this article: “None of that really matters though, because the Roe v Wade finding isn’t even about abortion, it’s about Federal overreach…The Justices made that clear…On a deeper level, there seems to be a prolonged campaign in place to violently divide the United States, perhaps to the point of outright civil war…From Black Lives Matter to January 6th, the 2nd amendment to Roe v Wade, there is an increasing supply of hot-button issues accompanied by a deluge of divisive rhetoric…Both sides are being encouraged to take to the streets, protest, mock, yell and scream without any search for common ground.”
