Dr. J Show Explores Abortion Breast Cancer Link

“Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we chose to focus on the abortion breast cancer link -- ABC,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

“On the latest Dr. J Show, I interviewed Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, MD, who has spent decades documenting the ABC link.”

Before her retirement, Dr. Lanfranchi spent more than 33 years as a breast cancer surgeon practicing in New Jersey. She is also the co-founder and president of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute.


Morse noted: “Only 15% of women who smoke get cancer, while 5-10% of women who’ve had an abortion get breast cancer. In both cases, the risk is very real.”

Lanfranchi reported: “In a period when 48 million abortions were done on American women, the incidence of breast cancer rose 40%.” Moreover, “Romania enjoyed one of the lowest breast cancer rates when abortion was illegal but has developed one of the world’s highest rates since abortion was legalized.”

She added, “By 1995, after abortion was widely legalized in the West, 17 studies worldwide (8 on American women) showed a statistically significant abortion breast cancer link.”

Morse charged: “Some in the medical community and media have either ignored or tried to discredit this research. But our first concern should be women’s health, not trying to bolster a political position, for or against abortion.”

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.

Barrett Didn’t Have to Apologize. Homosexuality is not Innate, Says Ruth Institute

“Judge Barrett did not have to apologize at all for using the expression ‘sexual preference,’” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., “Homosexuality is not innate.”

Morse was commenting on an exchange in the course of Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) objected to Barrett’s use of the expression (in regard to Obergefell v. Hodges) which she said was “offensive to the LGBT community,” whereupon Barrett apologized.


Morse remarked: “The LGBT community, so-called, can take offense at anything they want. We certainly can’t stop them. However, science has now proven beyond doubt that there is no ‘gay gene.’ Whatever combination of nature and nurture, choice and chance, may be at work for any particular person’s situation, hard genetic determinism is certainly not correct.”

She added: “Self-identifying as ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’ or ‘transgender’ is certainly a choice. Living a sexually active life with partners of the same sex is a choice, in fact, a whole series of choices.

“Unfortunately, we now have science by interest-group intimidation,” Morse charged.

In a commentary on a study in the August 30, 2019 issue of the publication Science, Fr. D. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., the Ruth Institute’s Senior Research Associate, remarked that the study “explodes the false narrative that being gay is an innate condition that is controlled or largely compelled by one’s genetic makeup.”

Sullins explains: “Rebutting decades of search by LGBT scientists for a ‘gay gene,’ the study’s first author flatly concludes ‘it will be basically impossible to predict one’s sexual activity or orientation from genetics.’” http://www.ruthinstitute.org/ruth-speaks-out/born-this-way-no-gay-gene

Morse added: “But this false narrative of gay at birth, or homosexuality as an innate condition, was the basis for the Supreme Court’s decision mandating same-sex marriage in Obergefell. That’s why the LGBT movement and its apologists become hysterical at the suggestion that homosexual behavior is a choice, implied in the expression ‘sexual preference.’ For the Sexual State, there’s so much at stake here.

“Ironically, the same politicians who say ‘listen to the scientists’ when it comes to COVID, are saying ‘Don’t listen to the scientists; listen to us,’ when it comes to homosexuality,” Morse remarked.

On June 5, 2020, Morse interviewed Dr. Walter Schumm of Kansas State University on efforts to silence research on gay issues.

In Gratitude for Our Many Blessings – Ruth Institute’s Third Annual Rosary Around the Lake to Take Place October 11

October 6, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: info@ruthinstitute.org 

In spite of the coronavirus and the devastation Hurricane Laura wrought on Lake Charles, The Ruth Institute will hold its Third Annual Rosary Around the Lake in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on Sunday, October 11.

Due to a variety of unique difficulties, this year’s event will not be around the lake, but around the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (935 Bilboa Street) instead.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said: “Between all the uncertainty created by the coronavirus and Hurricane Laura, we wondered if it would even be possible to hold the event this year. But we decided that prayer is more important now than ever. Please help us show Our Blessed Mother how grateful we are for the many blessings and protections she has showered on us.”


Morse noted that even though Lake Charles was devastated by Laura, “Both our Cathedral and the Shrine of Our Lady Star of the Sea were untouched. And our clergy here in Lake Charles have made Christ in the sacraments present to us. We are truly blessed!”

Participants will assemble inside the Cathedral and recite the Joyful Mysteries at 2:30 PM, and then process around the neighborhood. Benediction and recitation of the Sorrowful Mysteries will take place at an outdoor altar. The event, concluding with recitation of the Glorious Mysteries, will be over by 4 PM.

A Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form will be celebrated at the Cathedral at 5 PM.

Bishop Glen John Provost of Lake Charles wrote to Morse: “I wish to commend you for organizing this worthy demonstration of our faith in Our Lord and His Blessed Mother. Please be assured of prayers and gratitude and looking forward to the event.”

As in years past, the Lake Charles event will be part of an international prayer event, Rosary Coast to Coast. This gathering involves tens of thousands around the world.
