Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was the Sexual State in a Black Robe

September 22, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: info@ruthinstitute.org

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was doubtless a fine person and dedicated to her ideas,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “I pray for God’s mercy on her soul, and solace to her family. But her ideas are dividing America.”

“For Justice Ginsburg, the Sexual State trumped everything else, including First Amendment freedom of religion, common sense and basic science.”


Calling the late Supreme Court Justice “the personification of the Sexual State in a black robe,” Morse explained: “She consistently solidified the most radical tenets of the Sexual Revolution using the power of the State. She used the highest law of the land to overturn democratic processes that tried to protect traditional sexual morals.”

In abortion cases where even most of the court’s liberal members favored restraint, she remained an unapologetic champion of abortion without exceptions. Justice Ginsburg allowed radicals to use the power of the State to enforce their views on LGBT issues, including “transgenderism.” In June, she was part of the majority that applied workplace anti-discrimination provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to homosexuals and the gender-confused.

According to Morse, “This marked the first time the Supreme Court equated so-called sexual orientation with race and religion – a move which would have confounded the authors of the ’64 law. Although meant to cover employment, the decision will inevitably lead to removing remaining barriers to a distinction between women and men who call themselves women, their DNA notwithstanding.”

“The ruling essentially erased women,” Morse observed. “So it’s ironic that Justice Ginsburg is being hailed as a champion of women’s rights.”

“In addition, her dissents showed a marked hostility to religion. For instance, in Little Sisters of the Poor vs. Pennsylvania (2020), six justices upheld a Trump rule exempting the sisters from a provision of the Affordable Care Act, which would have forced them to provide contraceptives to employees through their health insurance plan. Ginsburg was one of only two justices who dissented.”

“In 2016, Donald Trump was elected to put the brakes on the Sexual State. He can make a significant step in that direction with a prompt replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

Ruth Inst. Says Removing Margaret Sanger’s Name Won’t Mean Fewer Black Babies Killed

August 3, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org 

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., called Planned Parenthood’s announcement that Margaret Sanger’s name will be taken off its Manhattan clinic “an important gesture, but still just a token. In New York City, there will still be almost as many abortions of black children each year as live births.”

With the renewed emphasis on removing vestiges of past racism, it’s hard to ignore Sanger’s history. “The mother of the U.S. population control movement – who’s often described as an abortion pioneer – was a dedicated eugenicist,” Morse explained. “As such, she believed in keeping down populations she considered ‘racially inferior.’ That meant non-whites.”


Sanger made no attempt to hide her beliefs. Even Adolf Hitler was aware of her views. She was one of only two Americans he praised, along with anti-Semitic conspiratorialist Henry Ford.

“If she was alive, Margaret Sanger would be thrilled by the effect of abortion in the United States,” Morse noted. “African American women account for roughly 13% of the total population, but 38% of all abortions performed in this country. It’s been conservatively estimated that since Roe v. Wade, more than 20 million abortions have been performed on African Americans – more than the entire black population of the United States in 1960.”

Sanger’s views aren’t confined to a benighted past. In 2009, Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the Court’s most liberal members, said that one reason for Roe was “concern about population growth and particularly growth of populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

“Who was she talking about, I wonder?” Morse asked sardonically, “Blue-eyed, blondes?”

“Taking Sanger’s name off its Manhattan clinic changes nothing. Planned Parenthood will still locate its clinics in poor minority neighborhoods. People of color will still suffer disproportionately from abortion. Besides, helping poor people means expanding their opportunities, not killing their children,” Morse charged.

The Ruth Institute’s 2020 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution (July 17-18) included a discussion of proven social science research about post-abortion trauma by Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., the Ruth Institute’s Senior Research Associate.

Ruth Inst: Prof. Mike Adams’ Death Shows Academic Establishment’s Fear of Truth

July 28, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.  

Commenting on the tragic death of University of North Carolina Professor Mike Adams, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “Mike was a constant irritant to the cultural ruling class. The Academic Establishment hates being challenged, especially by someone truthful and funny.”

Professor Adams, a 27-year teaching veteran, was found dead in his home, apparently of a gunshot wound. He was a tenured professor of sociology and criminology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and an author, public speaker and frequent contributor to conservative publications.

“His uncompromising opposition to abortion, feminism, LGBTQ activism and the trans movement made him a regular target of the Establishment,” Morse observed. “He made them look ridiculous, which joyless ideologues simply cannot abide.”


“Reporting on his death, the media describe Adams’ tweets as ‘controversial’ and ‘provocative.’ However, they never disproved the truth underlying his humor,” Morse added.

Among Adams’ tweets was: “The violent outrage of white liberals taking to the streets is brought to you by your local university. None of this would be possible without the encouragement of academic extremists who have hijacked the system of higher education.”

“Can any serious person deny this?” Morse said.

Speaking of the COVID shutdown, Adams wrote: “Presently a woman can get her baby cut out of the womb in North Carolina. But she cannot go to a salon to get her hair cut.”

Morse noted: “North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is on record supporting infanticide. So which part of Mike’s statement is untrue?”

One of Adam’s media critics wrote: “He called trans people mentally ill and asserted that any doctor willing to help with gender-reassignment surgery should be charged with mutilating a mentally ill person.”

Morse responded: “Anyone who thinks it’s normal for a man to have his penis cut off or a woman to have healthy breasts removed needs a serious reality check.”

The university forced Adams, 55, into early retirement. In recent weeks, friends said he was “under a lot of stress.”

“No kidding,” said Morse. “The stress came from his persecution. In any other context, this would be called workplace harassment.”

Morse concluded: “The academic totalitarians took another conservative scalp. A brave man has left us too soon. An eloquent voice has been stilled. Professor Mike Adams, rest in peace.”

The Institute recently held its 2020 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution (July 17-18), which included discussions of abortion and transgenderism, along with pornography, population control and sexual abuse. Videos from the Summit will be available in mid-August.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Mildest of Abortion Restrictions

June 30, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

The Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to be within 30 miles of a hospital in case of a botched abortion. “How can the pro-abortion movement, which claims to care about women, oppose something that is for the health and protection of the mother?” asked Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

“The Supreme Court’s liberal majority will do all it can to facilitate the Sexual Revolution, of which abortion is the crown jewel,” Morse said. “We’re told sex should be child-free, guilt-free and problem-free. If something inconvenient like conception occurs, abortion is the fail-safe.”


Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., Senior Research Associate of the Ruth Institute, said, “No one who welcomes the Supreme Court's latest decision can ever again claim to be against substandard ‘back-alley’ abortions. The Court's myopic decisions in Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton created this problem in the first place by preventing the adoption of federal standards for surgical abortions.

“Ample experience of women's brutal treatment at the hands of uncaring, self-serving abortion providers has shown that the abortion industry cannot regulate itself. Now the reasonable attempt by the people of Louisiana to ensure that the horrors of death mills such as Dr. Gosnell's in Pennsylvania can have no place in their state, have been thwarted by the self-appointed experts in medical care of the Supreme Court.”

Fr. Sullins will speak on post-abortion trauma at the Ruth Institute’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution July 17-18 in Lake Charles, LA.

The United Nations Advances the Sexual Revolution – What’s to Celebrate?

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. “The Ruth Institute will not be celebrating,” said Founder and President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “What could have been a force for peace and understanding has led the war on unborn children and human reproduction.”

Since its founding in 1969, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has spent an estimated $20 billion facilitating abortion and forced sterilization campaigns worldwide. President Trump ended U.S. funding of UNFPA in 2017, saving taxpayers $32.5 million annually.

Morse explained: “At the time, the U.S. administration noted UNFPA’s complicity in China’s notorious one-child policy -- which included forced abortion and involuntary sterilizations -- affecting half a billion women over 30 years. The UN agency has held up China’s program as a model for developing nations to follow.”


Coalitions Director of the Ruth Institute, Don Feder said, “The United Nations Population Fund has sowed the wind and is reaping the whirlwind with its attack on human reproduction. Worldwide, the fertility rate is half of what it was in the 1960s.”

“It will be impossible to maintain industrialized civilization with declining populations,” Feder continued. “With pension costs and medical care for the elderly rising, and tax revenue declining from fewer workers, national budgets will be caught in a squeeze. Loneliness and suicide among the elderly will also rise. As it slips into old age, a whole generation will be left with no children or grandchildren to visit them in retirement – or one child a thousand miles away who may call them once a month. We can thank the United Nations for this human tragedy.”

Feder will be addressing population control and demographic winter at the Ruth Institute’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, July 17-18 in Lake Charles, LA. Learn more about the Summit here.

Ruth Inst. Supports President’s Decision to Defund Pro-Abortion WHO

June 4, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.  

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., applauds President Trump’s decision to stop funding the World Health Organization, which had been receiving $450 million a year from the United States.

Morse noted that the President cited WHO’s gross mishandling of the coronavirus epidemic and subservience to China. “But WHO is also an advocate of abortion,” she said. “WHO treats abortion as a necessary health service. Thus, it considers restrictions on abortion as a denial of health care.”


In a 2012 publication, WHO stated that 22 million abortions were performed worldwide each year under “unsafe conditions,” from which 47,000 die and an additional 5 million were disabled. The organization claims, “Access to safe elective abortion early in pregnancy could prevent nearly every one of these deaths and cases of disability.”

Morse charged: “WHO’s mindset perfectly reflects the abortion mentality, which itself is another aspect of the Sexual Revolution. Abortion is never safe for the unborn child. In its calculation, WHO doesn’t even take this into account. To it, the unborn child is a nonentity – a thing not worthy of consideration.”

She added: “In America, ‘safe’ abortion has led to infanticide – allowing the child to die after delivery – and the sale of fetal body parts.”

WHO is relentless in pushing abortion. At the last meeting of the World Health Assembly (WHO’s governing body), the Trump Administration was forced to disassociate the United States from language in a draft document that promoted what it called “sexual and reproductive health” as a human right. The U.S. delegation responded, “We do not support abortion in our global health assistance.”

Morse observed, “If WHO follows China’s party line on COVID-19, it follows International Planned Parenthood Federation’s party line on abortion. Surely there are more worthy recipients of $450 million a year in federal funding than an organization the treats abortion as health care.”

Ruth Inst.: “Once Again, Sexual Revolution is Taxpayer-Funded”

May 21, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said she was appalled that Planned Parenthood affiliates received $80 million in forgivable loans under the Paycheck Protection Program and applauded the Trump Administration for demanding return of the funding.

Morse declared: “As an organization with more than 500 employees, Planned Parenthood doesn’t qualify for the program. Moreover, I don’t think this is the type of ‘business’ Congress and the administration had in mind when stimulus spending was authorized.”


In 2017-2018, Planned Parenthood performed 332,757 abortions. That year, it had $1.9 billion in assets. As independent filmmaker David Daleiden showed, a number of affiliates of the abortion giant made money selling aborted baby parts.

“The Sexual Revolution is largely supported by taxpayer dollars and government mandates,” Morse explained. “Contraception is an Obamacare mandate. Government agencies like the New York City Health Department promote the weirdest perversions imaginable. Public libraries provide a forum for Drag Queen Story Hour. And public education includes taxpayer-funded sex education that amounts to indoctrination and propaganda.”

Morse continued: “The Sexual Revolution is driven by elites who have forced the people to finance the destruction of their moral code. Billionaire donors like George Soros, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett finance abortion, contraception and sexual indoctrination. But they also spend their resources manipulating the political process to get funded by the US Treasury. Planned Parenthood’s brazen application for support from the Paycheck Protection Program shows how accustomed they are to feeding at the federal trough.

“These elites are so entrenched in the corridors of power that even in the Trump Administration, they found a way to get their hands on funding intended to keep small businesses and their employees going during the coronavirus shutdown.”

Morse said she was encouraged that the Small Business Administration is demanding that Planned Parenthood affiliates return the funds they received. She also called for safeguards to be put in place to prevent this from happening in the future.

The Man Who Exposed Forced Abortion in China a Guest on The Dr. J Show

April 27, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

Steven Mosher, author of Bully of Asia: Why China’s Dream is the New Threat to World Order, is this week’s guest on The Dr. J Show, the interview program of The Ruth Institute.

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, PhD., founder and president of the Ruth Institute, said, “We’re grateful for the opportunity to bring viewers this interview with Steven Mosher, the first person to expose the horrors of forced abortion in the People’s Republic of China. Decades before the communist regime exposed the world to the coronavirus, it was committing massive human rights abuses.”

In 1980, as the first Western social scientist to study in China, Mosher witnessed the regime’s one-child policy in action. He watched in horror as women in the seventh, eighth, even ninth month of pregnancy were dragged to an operating table to have a C-section abortion performed on them.


Mosher said this shocking experience made him pro-life, and his new pro-life stance cost him his doctorate.

Morse said, “Here in microcosm, is the whole story of US relations with the People’s Republic of China. Mosher’s advisors at Stanford University valued their access to research in China, more than exposing these human rights atrocities. Time after time, Westerners give China a ‘pass,’ so they can continue doing business there. This has been going on for forty years.”

Mosher also recounts his attempts to tell the president of the National Organization for Women about the appalling coercion of the Chinese Communist Party on women. The president of NOW responded, “Well, China does have a population problem.”

Morse stated, “Again, there is the story of highly-placed advocates of the Sexual Revolution ignoring human rights abuses. The claim that they defend a ‘women’s right to choose’ is a cover story, not a real commitment.”

Mosher subsequently abandoned a career as a social scientist and became a leader in the pro-life movement. Today he’s the president of the Population Research Institute.

“My interview with Mosher shows that the Chinese Communist Party has a long history of callousness and corruption even toward its own people, well before the recent COVID-19 catastrophe,” Morse said.

Each week on the Dr. J show, Morse interviews experts on issues ranging from surrogacy and “transgenderism,” to divorce, sexual abuse, pornography and other aspects of the Sexual Revolution.

Ruth Inst. Applauds Appeals Court Decision to Close Abortion Clinics

For immediate release

For more information contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., applauded a federal appeals court decision that allows Texas to stop abortions during the coronavirus pandemic. “The move will conserve scarce medical resources,” Morse said, “and give women who were planning to have an abortion time to rethink that fatal decision.”

Both the Surgeon General and the CDC have called on health care providers to delay non-urgent and elective procedures during the pandemic. Attorneys General in Texas and Ohio have ordered abortion facilities to comply.

Planned Parenthood sued to have the orders overturned, arguing that abortions are essential and cannot be delayed.


While a lower federal court agreed and issued an injunction against the Texas order, the U.S Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals said the order was constitutional and lifted the injunction. This is the first time a federal appeals court has ruled on the matter.

Morse explained: “Since Roe v. Wade, abortion proponents have told us that a woman has a right to choose to end the life of an unborn child. But if abortion involves choice, it must be elective. By its very definition, an elective surgery is subject to choice, not something one is required to have.”

In an earlier press release, the Ruth Institute noted that while so much of the nation has closed down to prevent the spread of a deadly virus, facilities working not to save lives, but to take them, remain open.

“Being confronted by so much death should encourage us to hold life precious,” Morse said. “During the coronavirus crisis, hospitals, physicians and health care providers are struggling heroically to save lives. Isn’t it ironic that the abortion industry struggles to keep taking lives, at all costs?”

See The Ruth Institute’s earlier press release: Abortion Clinics Stay Open – Even a Pandemic Must Not Be Allowed to Interfere with the Sexual Revolution.

In a similar vein, the Ruth Institute has a petition calling for a moratorium on “sex-change” operations, which are also elective.
