Southern abolitionists. There were still some individuals in the South with that view, but organized groups with public voices vanished in a very short time from what I understand.
Vanished, aka joined the Union army if they had the chance, or laid low as not to be guest of honor at a necktie party win the war started. If you were an abolitionist in the South life could be very difficult indeed,

Except that the trend I'm talking about was in the 1830s, long before the war.

Self preservationis a very strong incentive. Looking at the options available to those southerners who were either abolitionist or those who just didn't support slavery, and there were many, there were many options with western expansion,. Why wouldn't one decide to sell out and go west ?
