Alito Argued to Overturn Roe in 1985 Memo
In a recommendation to the solicitor general on filing a friend-of-court brief, Alito said that the government "should make clear that we disagree with Roe v. Wade and would welcome the opportunity to brief the issue of whether, and if so to what extent, that decision should be overruled."

Roe vs. Wade is not a piece of legislation. It was a supreme court ruling made in 1972, that made it unconstitutional for state legislatures to outlaw abortion. As such, it cannnot be repealed, but only overturned. That is why appointing winger justices is so important to the fundies.
