Here's the problem with letting states decide. If they have equal rights because its in the constitution, then it applies to every state.
Same basic principle as why JFK sent federal troops to enforce allowing blacks to enroll in any college they are qualified to attend. Why we sent troops to ensure integration in the South.
No matter the state some rights are applied at the federal level. It's the same whether its in Alabama, Georgia, New York or California. States rights don't apply here.
