Janet Porter's "Heartbeat Bill" has been resurrected in the Ohio legislature after passing out of a House committee today on a party line vote. Laurie Roth asserts that "Obama and his progressive army hates Christians and Jews – remember that. As a communist-Islamic, Obama views us all as infidels and goes after us by attacking our historical and moral high ground, attacking our freedom of speech and rights in general." Michele Bachmann says that President Obama's immigration action is designed to turn millions of "illiterate" immigrants... MORE >
5 Years After Passage Of Hate Crimes Law, Religious Right's Dire Predictions Still Haven't Come True

Here we go again. If Religious Right activists are to be believed, any day now the government will throw pastors in jail, have people “fined $500 a day” for reading the Bible and “start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians.” These are among the claims that were made this year by conservative politicians and movement leaders, who warn that America is now witnessing a “war on religion.” Similar dire warnings about the federal hate crimes law that was passed five years ago today have proven to be utterly false. The apocalyptic... MORE >

Over the summer, Religious Right activist Janet Porter launched her very own competitor to Facebook, which she called “ReaganBook,” but quickly pulled the site after “those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family” joined the outlet, which she bizarrely claimed was a threat to her freedom of speech. Porter, the founder of Faith 2 Action, described ReaganBook as a “Facebook for patriots,” warning that Facebook has a pro-gay bias. She eventually took ReaganBook offline, telling members that “we’re under attack” from people... MORE >

Yesterday, Janet Porter hosted her "Appeal To Heaven" rally outside the Ohio statehouse, which is just the latest step in her years-long effort to get the state to pass her radical anti-choice legislation known as the "Heartbeat Bill," which would outlaw abortion within weeks of conception. Prior to the rally, Porter was joined for a press conference by various state lawmakers who support her bill, at which State Representative Matt Lynch compared the fight to outlaw abortion in Ohio to the fight against ISIS in the Middle East. In a video posted on YouTube by... MORE >

A few weeks ago, we noted that Janet Porter was organizing "An Appeal To Heaven" rally to take place outside the Ohio Statehouse this month at which she and various anti-choice and Religious Right activists will ask God to help pass Porter's "Heartbeat Bill." For four years, Porter has been working, unsuccessfully, to pass this legislation in Ohio which, if enacted, would prevent a woman from having an abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be "as early as 18 to 24 days after conception." The rally is scheduled for next... MORE >

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. This week, we learned about the real, sinister agendas of President Obama, the gay rights movement and Facebook. 5. Is Obama Planning To Kill 25 Million People? No, Obama isn’t planning on killing 25 million people! “The number targeted for termination is probably much higher,” according to Sher Zieve, who posted a column this week on Obama’s genocidal plans on Matt Barber’s conservative outlet BarbWire. Zieve claims that Obama wants to “... MORE >

Janet Porter is not pleased that Cleveland Republicans are “working to undermine marriage and family values” and “throwing the moral principles of the party platform under the bus,” referring to the Cuyahoga County GOP’s outreach work at the Cleveland-Akron Gay Games. “Chairman Rob Frost released a statement about how thrilled he was to welcome the homosexual, lesbian and cross-dressing community into the Republican tent, they even paid for a booth at the Gay Games to celebrate immoral and dangerous behavior from a community that seeks to silence dissent...

Since 2011, Faith 2 Action's Janet Porter has been working to get the state of Ohio to pass her "Heartbeat Bill" legislation, which would prevent a women from having an abortion if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, thereby dramatically curtailing reproductive rights by banning abortion "as early as 18 to 24 days after conception." Now, after three years of failure despite having organized multiple rallies and attention-grabbing stunts, Porter has decided that she is going to take her case directly to God, sending out an email today announcing a prayer rally to be held...
