China Is Lying to Us...and the Elites Help Them!

Steven W. Mosher is an internationally recognized author and the foremost Western authority on China and on population issues, as well as an acclaimed and sought-after speaker. He has worked tirelessly since 1979 to fight coercive population control programs and has helped hundreds of thousands of women and families worldwide.

In 1979, Steven was the first American social scientist to visit mainland China. He was invited there by the Chinese Communist government, where he had access to government documents and actually witnessed women being forced to have abortions under the “one-child policy:” killing preborns in the seventh, eighth, and ninth month of pregnancy. Steven was a pro-choice atheist at the time, but witnessing these traumatic abortions led him to reconsider his convictions and to eventually become a practicing, pro-life Roman Catholic.

Prior to her policy and advocacy work, Mrs. Ruse practiced law in Washington D.C. She has testified as an expert in congressional hearings in both the House and the Senate, and she has filed "Friend of the Court" briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court.

ACTION ITEMS

  • Be very present to your children: As parents, we must be the primary educators of our children in all things, and especially in matters of sexuality. It is from parents and churches that children will hear the good news about God’s design for human sexuality.
  • Teach your children: Sex is for intimate unity within marriage and this union creates children. Marriage is for the protection and benefit of children. Children will understand the true meaning and purpose of sex within marriage, and that marriage is for the protection and benefit of children. Parents must confidently and consistently share these important messages with their children, because their children are not likely to hear them in our culture or in our public schools.
  • You must interfere: Immoral sex ed works best when parents don’t interfere. You must interfere.
  • Help your child organize a club: Choose a focus that will have a positive impact on the school, like a Bible Study club, a Pure Fashion club, a Biology Club, or a Christian Athletes club.
  • Invite a group to review sex ed materials: Invited trusted parents to review your school’s sex ed lessons. Read the actual lessons, watch the videos, and visit the recommended web sites. Do not rely on the summaries provided by the school and do not settle for being handed a packet of home resources to “reinforce” the lesson. Demand to see the actual lessons your children will see.

    Parents may opt their children out of this material whenever and wherever it may crop up—in lessons, school events, assemblies, classes, or any activities that violate their families’ beliefs.

  • Every school year, file the “Universal Model Opt-Out letter” (template provided by Family Research Council): downloads.frc.org/EF/EF19J21.pdf

"I am going to be a boy, it will keep me safe"

Dr. Erin Brewer developed a trans identity after being molested in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. In her mind, she *was* a boy. But instead of enabling this delusion, Erin's mother eventually sent her to a therapist, and she received proper care to manage her gender confused feelings. She eventually accepted her gender, but continued running away from God.

She became a star on the most popular pornography site in the world, making the top 20 most popular amateur performers, with over 10.8 million views and more than 400 videos. She was saved from pornography when she accepted Jesus as her Savior. She deleted all of her videos and is now speaking out about the dangers of gender ideology and porn. She openly shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement. Erin earned her bachelors degree from Hampshire College, and her Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.

Ambassador & Presidential Candidate Alan Keyes Talks National Policy with The Ruth Institute

Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes is an American conservative political activist, pundit, author, former ambassador to the United Nations and Adviser to President Ronald Reagan, two-time major presidential candidate, husband and father. His stated purpose in life, like that of the America’s Founders, is to provide a secure future for our children and our posterity.

Keyes is an unparalleled leader among moral conservatives. His Harvard University Doctorate in Government with its emphasis on our Constitution, his extensive experience in American government, along with his great faith in God’s part in the founding of that government enable him to provide a cogent defense of morality in America! Ambassador Keyes has unashamedly and consistently raised the standard of unalienable rights and Biblical truth in defense of preborn children. He confronts the culture of death with compelling and inspiring reasons why abortion must be banned from our land, and speaks in all parts of our country in an attempt to educate those unaware of the threat to the very existence of the United States. He boldly speaks to bolster the troops!

Reversing The “Seamless Garment”

(February 28, 2020) Dr J is speaking with Traci DeVette Griggs on Family Policy Matters. Their topic is the "seamless garment," an idea that has had several meanings over the years. In the 1980s, it meant a consistent position on the life issues; more recently, it has been used as a way to downplay the horrors of abortion in favor of other issues. Dr J has some thoughts on this.
