Anti-abortion activist and self-identified Christian Janet Porter released a trailer for her new film "What's A Girl To Do?" on Nov. 22 (video below).
The romantic comedy recalls how Porter met her husband, David (played by Stephen Baldwin), and praises the passage of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, which banned a specific type of late-term abortion that happens in "a fraction of 1 percent of all abortions," noted The Boston Globe.
The film includes cameos by Republican Rep. Steve King of New York and former Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas.
In the trailer, Porter talks with them about someday passing her "Heartbeat Bill" in Ohio, which would effectively ban legal abortion in that state.
Porter based her screenplay on a dating book that she wrote in 2004 titled "What’s a Girl To Do? While Waiting for Mr. Right," in which she recalled dating the son of a pro-choice lawmaker before meeting her husband, reports Right Wing Watch.
Porter recalled in 2008 on WorldNet Daily how she met David while writing the screenplay for the film. Porter referred to herself in third person:
On Oct. 27, 2007, Janet was wondering whether to put Ephesians 3:20 into her "What’s a Girl to Do?" screenplay she was entering into Ted Baehr’s Kairos Contest, and went to the church bookstore to put the question to a test. She decided if she saw the verse at the bookstore, she would include it, if not, not. While reading the musical greeting cards, she found the verse – but didn’t know she was about to experience it first hand ... Janet walked out of church to add the final verse and complete her screenplay, "What’s a Girl to Do until Mr. Right Comes Along?" when she met … Mr. Right: David Porter.
Porter also recalls hearing God speaking to her, and cites Bible verses written 2,000 years ago specifically to Jewish people as God's confirmation to her and David that they were meant to be married.
