Of course not, since abortion was never the issue for the evangelicals. Coit v. Green was: they needed an issue to rally around that, unlike allowing racially discriminatory policies in universities, couldn't cost them tax exemptions, and opposing abortion was that issue.
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

I’ve been saying it since Trump won: “Abortion rights were nice while they lasted.”
That's the bizarre thing looking at the states from across the pond, a lecherous, non-consensual vagina grabbing, porn star boinking, foul mouthed 243 pound infant with a toupee in bed with the most sexually repressed people outside the Taliban and the Vatican. Can any of those buttoned up, neurotic Jesus freaks actually see the contradiction?

They'll say it's because "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" or because "God sometimes uses sinners to do His work". But IIRC, the evangelicals who support Trump are more likely to use "evangelical" as a political/tribal label than a religious one, which probably goes a long way to explain why they support him.
Anti-authoritarian, anti-extremist, anti-bullshit.

This quote nicely sums up why buttoned up, peevish conservatives are happy doing business with a pussygrabbing monster from New York.

Quote
We live in a society that is comfortable letting men get away with sexual violence, but determined not to let women get away with consensual sex. This is why there are vast swathes of society who are comfortable giving vast executive and judicial power to men credibly accused of sexual assault—as long as those same men promise to confiscate women’s power to sexually self-determine.

BTW, in case there actually were some dipshits who were still claiming that the point of the Alabama law wasn't controlling women, you ought to check this out:

Yeah, when the guys drawing up this legislation realized that this would criminalize in-vitro fertilization and other situations where the eggs could be destroyed outside of the woman's body, they carved out exceptions for them; it's only murder if the fetus is killed INSIDE OF THE WOMAN'S UTERUS...
