Is America Hopelessly Divided ?

Are the 5 ultra conservative Supreme Court justices cognizant of the fact that their decision to overturn Roe v Wade will split the country in half?
How could they not be? And yet they went forward with it.
On ABC's This Week today guests made the point that the 5 far right justices made a decision to "go for it". What does that mean? It means that Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh , and Barrett, made a knowing decision to overturn Roe even though they know that it will split the country into two distinct pieces. If a ban takes place, about half the states will ban abortion and about half will keep it (for now). Isnt this a defacto "civil war" ?
Many conservative politicians have been for years saying that they want to promote unity in the nation. Of course their idea of unity is that everyone come around to their views, many of which that are at odds with the modern world.
Trump and MAGA -ism have divided this country gravely. We have a sizeable number of Americans who base their beliefs more on conspiracy theories than on facts and reality. We already have that, and now this decision by the Supreme Court will exacerbate the already existing divide.
Where will future "unity" in America come from?
It almost seems to be a question that will require divine intervention.
