President Obama said that those who oppose abortion want to return to the 1950s:

"So the fact is, after decades of progress, there are still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century," said Obama. "And they've been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women's health."

Obama made the remarks to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America.
