Abortion has been legal now for 42 years. Even though Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe from Roe vs. Wade) has now devoted her life to the Pro-Life pursuit of stopping death, the law still stands.
Life goes on…for some. For others, they have no protection. The once “safest place on earth” has become a replica of a bloody battlefront. And many of us shake our heads and say with sad eyes, “It’s too bad, someone should do something.”
Someone is doing something
Her name is Janet Porter. She’s an everyday average American who loves good food, great music, traveling, and rich conversation. She lives in a somewhat secluded Ohio neighborhood enjoying the deer in her backyard and, while biting her tongue, raking the neighbors leaves off her grass. She is a believer in Jesus Christ and all good things, she is open about her communication & relationship with the Lord and it appears that God has great favor on her.
Janet Porter has a secret life however. Tucked away in her Ohio home she displays things that the general public may not know…may not see.
Janet is famous among people. Google her name, you will find her easily. She has been called lots of names, lots of things, she has been misinterpreted and attacked from every angle. If you believed everything you read you would be misguided into thinking that this women is a trouble-maker and likes the public eye.
But that is the furthest thing from the truth.
Janet has stood in the gap for thousands of murdered children for the last 5 years in Ohio. You would think people would applaud that, support her, and come-alongside such a great cause. Unfortunately, instead many are mad because she chooses to fight against abortion. This is something we see often in the world, and something I refuse to ever understand. It’s an upside down place we live in.
Mrs. Porter has a authoritative voice when she talks about abortion. Her wisdom and knowledge of this arena is beyond experience. It is divine. She has a small room in her home where she wars for these children through prayer…created well before the War Room movie was ever released. For years, she has privately, spent thousands of hours in a secret place in her home pleading for the lives of children she has never known. Her walls are filled with prayers, praise, and purpose. She finds her direction in this place, her strategy…her peace, when it comes to fighting a fight that sometimes looks impossible. It is here, that she is reminded, that the public does not get to define her.
The secret life of Janet Porter starts early in the morning and sometimes continues into the late of night, petitioning for life. Everyday she devotes her time, talent, & treasure to the Ohio Heartbeat Bill and seeing it pass through the Ohio courts. Her dream of rescuing children is stronger now then ever before. With teary eyes, she tells amazing stories from the journey…and then with expectation, she speaks of the coming victory.
This is someone who has decided do something. She is in the trenches of a mighty battle.
WE NEED PEOPLE LIKE JANET TO PRAY & PURPOSELY JUMP INTO BATTLE IF FOR NO OTHER REASON THEN TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
Recently the state of Indiana has came across this trench, looked down inside, saw Janet, and hopped in alongside her. The Indiana Heartbeat Bill will stop over 8,000 pre-born Hoosiers from being murdered every year. We can potentially be the next state to introduce this bill and have it pass through the courts.
Hoosiers what to be different! Hoosiers want to stand up for the right of all life! Hoosiers care about Hoosier Babies!
I am honored to be a part of this great calling…
The biggest lie going around right now is that abortion is a political issue…it has never been a political issue, IT IS ONLY A MORAL ISSUE & ALL CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN THIS FIGHT.
Let’s be Defenders of Life! If you walk across the battleground & look down into the trench, I will be there. If I reach out my hand to you..will you hop inside with me??
Please “like” the Heartbeat Bill and support Indiana as we go forward. We need defenders of the unborn to stand up in each state, your state could be next!
