Porter’s ‘Appeal to Heaven’ to Pass Fetal Heartbeat Bill


Janet Porter, the extreme anti-choice activist who has been trying everything to pass a law in Ohio that would ban abortion if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, says she’s no longer going to appeal to legislators or voters to pass the bill — she’s “going over their heads” to God.

We’ve called. We’ve rallied. We’ve lobbied. On September 17th, we’re going over their heads!

AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN
Wednesday, September 17th
Ohio Statehouse-High St. Side
10:00 am – 1:00 pm
To pass the Heartbeat Bill

Pastors from around the state will lead us as we go over the heads of the elected officials with an Appeal to Heaven!

That’s a great idea. I’m sure it will work so much better than all the previous rallies you’ve held and the millions of prayers you’ve already prayed on this subject. Maybe you just didn’t hit the magic number to get God’s attention. Of course, God isn’t registered voter in Ohio and he doesn’t have the requisite photo ID to vote even if he was.

    For me, this solidifies the case that their arguments are religious, and therefore they should not be attempting to impose their religious beliefs on others.

    Which could make it interesting if the bill were to actually be passed. Could this bill be nullified by a judge if evidence was shown this was religiously based?

    So many things go so far over state legislators’ heads – will they notice one more?

    Plus, he’s been gerrymandered into an overwhelmingly pro-God district, so his vote wouldn’t matter anyway.

    coragyps says: Is there a photo ID so encrypted that God can’t make himself a fake one???
    .
    Surely the question is: Can God encrypt a file so deeply that even He can’t hack it?

    Reminds me of a line from an episode of M*A*S*H when Houlihan was going to gripe to some general she knew about what Colonel Blake was doing –

    “You’ve [gone over my head] so many times I’ve got footprints on my scalp!”

    Didn’t we learn in another thread that our democracy was based on Christianity? This isn’t very… democratic.
