Meet the Charismatic Woman Waging Spiritual Warfare Before Congress
Janet Porter is on the frontlines of one of today's largest spiritual battles—the fight for our children.
Porter runs Faith2Action, a pro-active launching pad for the pro-family movement.
She's also behind House Bill 490, also known as the Heartbeat Bill.
"For the last eight years, I have worked to pass Heartbeat Bills, beginning in Ohio where God first put the idea in my heart. The idea came to me at the wake of my friend Mark Lally, former president of Ohio Right to Life. As I stood at his wake, I realized he worked his entire life to end abortion, but never lived to see it," Porter says.
"You see, I served as legislative director of Ohio Right to Life for nearly a decade and worked to pass the Woman's Right to Know Act, parental consent, fetal homicide, and the nation's first ban on partial birth abortion. But, as Dr. Jack Willke, the founder of both National and Ohio Right to Life said, the incremental approach 'did not get us far enough fast enough.' He, too, died without seeing his lifelong dream of ending abortion. With a body count of 60 million innocent children, it's time we realize that 45 years of microscopic incrementalism has been a catastrophic failure," she says.
