They may have been there, but I don't recall the R's being anywhere near this combative about abortion in the past. Aside from that, your assessment is probably fair. However, it's also true that the unwillingness of the party to change with the times is costing them a ton of votes from my generation. I just don't see how it's sustainable at this point.
