Host:Dr. James Dobson
In the late hours of September 1st, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to block the Texas Heartbeat Law, legislation that prohibits abortion after a heartbeat is detected. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson and Janet Porter, founder of Faith2Action, examine this historic moment and consider what it means for the future.
Janet Porter is the founder of Faith2Action, a pro-life legislative advocacy. Janet’s firm belief is, "If a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected." Her organization has lobbied for 29 State Heartbeat Bills, 14 of which have passed. Janet served as legislative director of Ohio Right to Life, where she successfully lobbied for the passage of the nation’s first partial-birth abortion ban. She also worked as national director of the Center for Reclaiming America, founded by Dr. D. James Kennedy, where she initiated the "Truth in Love Campaign," featuring ex-homosexuals in newspaper and television ads. Janet has appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, Fox and Friends, The Today Show, ABC Evening News, 20/20, Nightline, and CBS This Morning. She chronicled her decade-long battle to save babies in the womb in her latest book, A Heartbeat Away.
