Ronald Regan era. The Moral majority and Jerry Falwell went after abortion big time.

It's not. the attitudes changed about gay's in the military, gay marriage in people under 50. They saw it as no big deal. They see abortion as settled a long time ago. Birth control, really? I dont think all the R's are on board with this track but it sure seems that the loud part of it is on board.
