The big difference over the years has been that Evangelicals have come on board, after initial hesitation.
Loyal Catholics have always opposed abortion, while dissenters have supported it. The dissenters have been aging and losing influence, although they are still overrepresented in the Church bureaucracy. But on the whole, opposition to abortion among Catholics has grown.
But there has been a real sea change among Evangelicals. In the early days of Roe v. Wade, Southern Baptists supported abortion. Now they oppose it. In early days my Evangelical friends were divided on the issue and somewhat reluctant to speak out. But, thank God, that has changed.
The Supreme Court was confident that the nation would fall in line with their decision as a fait accompli. They were wrong. We will NEVER consent to the legality of infant murder.

I grew up around a whole lot of Southern Baptists, and I do not recall ever hearing that they believed abortion was ok.
