A Heartbeat Away: How the Heartbeat Bill Will Pierce the Heart of Roe V. Wade and the Shocking Betrayal No One Saw Coming (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
The Heartbeat Bill ushered in more progress to end abortion in America in the first six months of 2019 than the previous fifty years.
After decades of looking for answers, what we needed was to listen for one. The child in the womb is sending a signal. Each beat of their heart is a sign of life, a cry for help--an SOS we can no longer ignore. To deny their heartbeat is to deny science.
This book provides what the pro-life movement has been missing: a clear path to victory. A monumental cultural shift began with a simple bill to ensure "if a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected." Heartbeat Bills have been introduced in twenty-nine states and passed in nine (and counting): Arkansas and North Dakota (2013), Iowa (2018), Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Missouri, Louisiana, and Ohio where it all began (2019).
Written by Janet (Folger) Porter, the architect of the Heartbeat Bill, this book will ignite hope, inspire and equip readers to bring the killing to an end--not sometime in the distant future, but right now. It is a revolutionary, refreshing, and entertaining guide for even the most seasoned pro-life activist, providing creative solutions to overcome even the fiercest opposition and obstruction.
This is the moment for which we have prayed. Ending abortion, once considered impossible, is now inevitable. Victory is a heartbeat away
