    elected and pass laws that they wanted (though most of those laws were killed later in court challenges).

    Today, they couldn't pass a slow bus on the highway.

      They have been very successful in limiting abortion and making it unavailable through various regulatory requirements.

      And creationism is being taught in schools - or evolution is not being taught in schools.

        Their goal was to make abortion ILLEGAL in the US, period.  They failed utterly. They can pass restrictions in areas where they still have a bare majority, but at the national level they have failed completely.

        Creationism is illegal to teach in public schools.  Period. And it is illegal to NOT teach evolution because of religious opposition. Period. Creationists have lost every court case they have ever been involved with. Every one. Without exception. They failed utterly.

        In the end, reality always wins.
