Janet Porter began her career as a Religious Right activist as the legislative director of Ohio Right to Life in the 1990s, before becoming the national director for D. James Kennedy’s Center for Reclaiming America. Porter eventually struck out on her own, establishing the group Faith2Action and becoming a Religious Right activist, columnist and radio host through which she prompted her extreme right-wing views and countless conspiracy theories.
In 2010, Porter lost her radio program when the Christian network that hosted it objected to her increasing embrace of an extremist Christian movement known as Dominionism, which teaches that Christians are to control all levers of power within society and use those positions to implement public policy that corresponds to the Bible. Porter eventually resurfaced back in Ohio, where she has been leading a so-far fruitless crusade to get the state legislature to pass a “Heartbeat Bill” that would outlaw abortion in the state if a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Fed up with her failure to convince to legislature to pass her bill, she ran for the state senate in 2016, but lost in the Republican primary.
