23 Full implementation of the Hyde Amendment was thwarted by Federal court decisions and Congressional debate through the 1970s. LAPAC began to exercise its influence over Human Life Amendment votes and eventually even Congressional elections. By 1978 it successfully increased the number of pro-life supporters in Congress by targeting those who opposed the Hyde Amendment, paving the way for the 1980 election of Ronald Reagan. Reagan's judicial appointments to the federal courts were consistently pro-life. Moreover, under him, the process for appointing federal judges changed, and powerful Republican leaders like Strom Thurmond helped control the flow of pro-life legislation.
