Eleven years ago God gave Janet Porter an idea to keep hearts beating with the nation’s first Heartbeat Bill introduced in Ohio in 2011.
Since then, fourteen states have passed Heartbeat Laws including her home state of Ohio:
North Dakota (2013)
Kentucky (March, 2019)
Mississippi (March, 2019)
Ohio (April, 2019)
Georgia (May, 2019)
|Missouri (May, 2019)|
Louisiana (May, 2019)
South Carolina (February, 2021)
Oklahoma (April, 2021)
Idaho (April, 2021)
Texas (May, 2021) ENACTED
While the other Heartbeat Laws are making their way through the court system, the Texas Heartbeat Law is NOW ENACTED! That means that more than 100 Texas babies each day, more than 40,000 babies each year will live and not die!
This is the most significant pro-life victory in the last 50 years.
God gave us what has been missing in the pro-life movement for nearly 50 years—a clear pathway to victory.
While 13 states have criminal penalties for violating their Heartbeat Laws, Texas went to the heart of the issue—the motivation of the abortion industry—money. Right now in Texas—not someday—but right now—anyone who violates the Texas Heartbeat Law can be sued (by any citizen). If that citizen wins their suit, the abortionist must pay them $10,000. But not just the abortionist, but ANYONE who aids or abets in the abortion—including the staff, “clinic escorts,” and insurance companies who pay for it!
During the oral arguments on our bill, Justice Kagan spoke against the “geniuses” who wrote the Heartbeat Law, who found the “kink in the armor.” She railed against those who would violate the “command” issued by the court. They don’t realize that the Supreme Court doesn’t issue “commands,” they issue opinions–often bad opinions which have been overturned hundreds of times by the same court. Please continue to pray for the justices whose latest rulings signal that Roe v. Wade will be sent to the ash heap of history where it belongs.
Legislators in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Alaska, Michigan, New Mexico, Kansas, Virginia, Oregon, North Carolina, Florida, New Hampshire, New York, California, and Montana are now joining the effort to keep hearts beating. The momentum is now unstoppable!
But there’s something even more important than the right to life—that is where we spend eternal life. We also have a Great Commission to fulfill:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” –Matthew 28:19-20
From tracts to missions, we are all seeking ways to reach the lost. But what if we had something that could bring the lost to us? While most non-Christians won’t watch Bible-teaching shows, everyone wants to laugh. When the Roseanne reboot offered an alternative viewpoint, 18 million people tuned in to watch. What if we could make people laugh while putting God and His Truths in a positive light once again? We can.
We can do more than protest and boycott Hollywood—we can CREATE something better! There are lots of good Christian movies, but there are NO quality Christian sitcoms from which to choose—none. With your help, that’s about to change.
“What’s a Girl to Do While Waiting for Mr. Right?” (by Janet Folger Porter) hit #2 on the Christian “Relationship” chart when it was released in 2002 and has since been translated into other languages. Like the book, the upbeat and fun sitcom will take viewers on a roller-coaster ride from “Mr. Right Now” all the way to “Mr. Right,” without losing heart and without losing faith. One of our award-winning actors on the cast had this to say about it:
If we can end abortion, we can transform the entertainment industry. The first season has been filmed—eight episodes to reach the lost and disciple nations—boldly speaking the truth and presenting the Gospel in a winsome way the world will watch!
Like the book, the upbeat and fun sitcom will take viewers on a roller coaster ride from “Mr. Right Now” all the way to “Mr. Right,” without losing heart and without losing faith.

Counter the culture while making people laugh. While most non-Christians won’t watch Bible-teaching shows, everyone wants to laugh. And we can make people laugh while putting God and His Truths in a positive light once again. There are lots of good Christian movies, but there are NO quality Christian sitcoms. None.
With your help, that’s about to change.

|Why should we settle for the world’s agenda in every sitcom?|
Mocking God and His principles is the norm in almost every sitcom.
Finally, entertainment without the indoctrination of a godless worldview.
