“Individuals with a Cervix” is the Latest Effort to Erase Women, Ruth Inst. Charges

“I don’t know whether to laugh or cry,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., regarding CNN using the expression “individuals with a cervix” instead of women, in a story about screenings for cervical cancer.

“We have come to expect this kind of nonsense from CNN. It’s no wonder CNN is at the bottom of the cable-news heap, with roughly half the viewership of FOX News.”

Morse continued, “I was really disappointed to see that the CNN story was a direct report from the American Cancer Society’s premier journal. The medical profession, including venerable organizations like the American Cancer Society, has gone all-in for the Sexual Revolution.”


“Increasingly, the Ruling Class and the Beautiful People of society avoid saying ‘man’ and ‘woman,’ to avoid offending men who say they are women,” said Morse. “In May, a UN official said we need to make language more ‘gender-neutral’ by avoiding words like ‘husband’ and ‘wife,’” she explained.

Morse urged: “CNN and the American Cancer Society need to get a grip on reality. There are two, and only two, sexes – male and female. A man doesn’t become a woman by wanting to be one, or by mutilating his body with hormones and surgery, none of which alters his DNA.”

Morse continued: “Only women can get cervical cancer, because only a woman has a cervix. Why is that so hard to understand? For decades progressives have claimed to be empowering women. Now they are erasing them and pretending that male and female are ‘social constructs.’ The Sexual Revolution was never really about empowering women.”

“There seems to be no end to CNN’s language-manipulation. Instead of saying ‘baby,’ it once used the expression ‘a fetus that was born,’ referring to protections for infants that survive an abortion,” Morse said.

“Just because CNN ‘self-identifies’ as a news channel doesn’t make it one.”

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.

Ruth Institute’s 2020 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution an Overwhelming Success

July 22, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org 

The Ruth Institute’s 2020 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution (July 17-18) overcame last-minute challenges to emerge as an historic contribution to the cause of educating the public about the millions of lives damaged by the Sexual Revolution.

“Despite new restrictions on public gatherings in Louisiana, announced by our governor only the week before the event, our 2020 Summit was more successful than we could have hoped,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.


Morse explained that the Summit was a hybrid event, with in-person participation in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and online involvement. “None of the evils we confronted – pornography, sexual abuse, gender confusion, coercive population control and dramatically falling fertility – are going to call a time-out for a pandemic,” Morse observed.

The Summit included an Ambassador’s Program (intensive leadership training, by invitation only), an Awards Banquet and the Summit itself. Sessions included Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse -- Surviving Pornography -- Surviving the LGBT Sub-Culture -- and Reporting from the Trenches on the Transgender Movement.

Among the topics covered in the Ambassador’s training program were: Understanding the Global Sexual RevolutionMedical Tragedies of the Sexual RevolutionSocial Science Evidence About the Sexual Revolution – and Human Rights Catastrophes of the Sexual Revolution: Population Control and Demographic Winter.

The speakers and panelists included experts as well as those offering personal testimony, among them: Dr. Michelle Cretella (Executive Director, American College of Pediatricians), Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D. (former Professor of Sociology at Catholic University of America and Senior Research Associate at the Ruth Institute), Dr. Paul Church (former Assistant Professor of Surgery at the Harvard Medical School), Sue Ellen Browder (a journalist and author of Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement), Luis Ruiz (a survivor of the Pulse Nightclub shootings who subsequently left the LGBT lifestyle), Faith Hakesley (a victim of rape by a Catholic priest who met with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI), Brandon Showalter (a journalist who has written extensively on the trans movement), Melea Stephens (a family therapist and board member of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation) and Attorney Cathy Cleaver Ruse (formerly Pro-Life Spokesman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops now Senior Fellow for Legal Studies at the Family Research Council).

Morse summed up the importance of having a live event during the time of COVID: “The relationships and friendships formed were invaluable. Although we were delighted to offer online participation to those who weren’t able to join us in person, including some of our speakers, there are distinct advantages that come from being physically present in a conference room with leaders and activists who are working on the same issues and share your perspective.”

“They need and deserve to have their values defended with research, analysis and personal anecdotes,” Morse said, “and we were grateful to be in a position to do just that.”

Recordings from the summit will be available on-line in the not too distant future.

Among the participants on the Surviving the LGBT Subculture panel is Doug Mainwaring, a journalist, and Luis Ruiz, who survived the Pulse Nightclub shootings. Both left the LGBT subculture.

Survivors Summit Covers Abuse, Addictions and Attitudes that Threaten our Civilization

June 23, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org 

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s disastrous Bostock decision, the Ruth Institute’s Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution takes on extreme urgency. The Summit, to be held July 17-18, in Lake Charles, LA, will analyze the many ways the Sexual Revolution needs the power of the State to do its destructive work.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., stated, “The Bostock ruling redefines “female” and “male” for purposes of law. The Obergefell decision redefined marriage. The Federalist Society vetted Gorsuch, appointed by Pres. Trump, who wrote the majority opinion. This terrible ruling shows that the conservative legal establishment has no idea how to address sexual and social issues. The Sexual Revolution attacks both the individual and the family. At our Summit, we’ll take a hard look at some of the most destructive pathologies the Global Ruling Class has inflicted on ordinary people.”

Expert presentations will include:


  • Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse – The future of health and the family depends on ending it. No one will do this but people of faith! Presented by Dr. Morse and Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D.
  • Surviving Pornography, as a nation, as a family, as an individual: Pornography as a Public Health Crisis, Melea Stephens (of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation) and Protecting Young Eyes: Tools for Parents and Other Educators, presented by Chris McKenna (of Covenant Eyes).
  • Surviving the LGBT Sub-Culture: Medical Issues – presented by Dr. Michelle Cretella, MD, of the American College of Pediatricians.
  • Reporting from the front lines of the Transgender Movement – stories from parents of gender-confused children, “desisters” (individuals who lived as the opposite sex and stopped), resistance within the medical profession and surprising new allies, presented by journalist Brandon Showalter.

The program will also include testimony from Survivors of the Sexual Revolution, as well as activists’ panels, question and answer sessions and general discussions.

Among the participants on the Surviving the LGBT subculture panel are journalist Doug Mainwaring and Pulse Nightclub shooting survivor, Luis Ruiz. Both left the LGBT subculture.

Morse observed: “After the Bostock ruling, social conservatives of all faiths have realized beyond any shadow of a doubt: we are on our own. Participants at our Summit will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of redefining the direction of the social conservative movement. The encounter with experts and their analysis, the first-hand testimony of Survivors, and the experience of effective activists, will inspire participants. They will come away with new friends as well as practical tips on how to get involved and make a difference.”

Ruth Institute: SCOTUS erases womanhood

June 16, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. said, “The Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County erases womanhood. It is the end of women in sports and women’s rights to privacy. Thanks to the Sexual Revolutionaries on the Court, our laws will refuse to distinguish men who say they are women from real women.”

The Court held that the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which was intended to protect employees from racial discrimination, applies to an individual’s subjective, claimed perception of his sex (so-called sexual identity).


Morse called the ruling: “A decision by an activist court which bears no relationship to the law it claims to be applying, nor to reality itself. The Supreme Court can distort the law, but it can’t change reality. If you’re born a man, you’ll remain one to your dying day, regardless of what you believe or do to your body.”

Although the decision immediately concerns employment law, bureaucrats and other activist judges will surely apply it more broadly. Morse warned: “Justice Alito’s dissent spells out the long-term consequences of today’s ruling. Bathrooms, changing rooms, sports, health care, housing, employment in religious institutions, freedom of speech, will all be distorted. A school district will decide that the ruling compels it to allow boys access to girls rooms. Sports teams will feel compelled to let boys who ‘identify’ as the opposite sex play on girls’ sports teams, essentially ending women’s sports.”

Dr. Michelle Cretella, M.D., Executive Director of the American College of Pediatricians, agreed with Morse: “The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 against science, common sense and the bedrock of Western Civilization when it redefined ‘sex’ to include gender identity and thereby erased females from American law. From the scientific point of view, sex is defined according to an organism's biological role in reproduction; it is an innate and immutable trait that is solely biologically determined. Thanks to the betrayal of conservative justices John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch, all Americans and American institutions (including churches) must pretend that sex is a mere state of mind that can be changed at will. This means that all Americans are now compelled by federal law to lie - compelled by law to speak and behave as though people are whoever or whatever they claim to be irrespective of the facts.”

Dr. Cretella will be speaking at The Ruth Institute’s annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual RevolutionJuly 17-18, in Lake Charles, LA. Her topic will be Medical Tragedies of the Sexual Revolution.

Morse concluded, “We can hope that a future court will reverse the Bostock decision. In the meantime, the fight will continue in other forums and on other battlefields.”

Cretella agreed: “The enforcement of this insanity requires nothing less than a tyrannical new order of government. We must resist.”

Ruth Inst. Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution – July 17-18, 2020

June 2, 2020

For Immediate Release

For more information, contact media@ruthinstitute.org.

The Ruth Institute will hold its Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution on July 18, in Lake Charles, LA. Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “This Dinner and Summit will take those who’ve suffered from the Sexual Revolution from victimhood to healing, empowerment and activism.”

The event will be held live, in accordance with the gradual reopening guidelines for the state of Louisiana. Morse said, “We are not cowering in fear, wondering whether we will have a future. We will comply with all public health guidelines in place at the time. But we want the public to know that we at the Ruth Institute are filled with hope for the future. We will act as if we have a future.”


The Awards Dinner Friday evening kicks off the festivities. The Institute will give awards for activism and public witness, including a keynote address on How the Sexual Revolution Hijacked the Women’s Movement. The Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution on Saturday includes these sessions:

Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse – Statistical analysis and strategies for healing, including testimony from survivors of childhood sexual abuse, including clergy sexual abuse.

Surviving Pornography Addiction – Understanding pornography as a public health crisis, and offering strategies for protecting children.

Surviving the LGBT Sub-Culture – Including health and psychological risks commonly associated with same-sex sexual activity and gender dysphoria.

Morse added: “Last year’s Survivors Summit was an overwhelming success. This year, we’ll be hearing expert input and testimony from survivors on a new range of issues associated with the Sexual Revolution.”

“The Ruth Institute is the only organization fighting for the family and exposing the interconnectedness of such diverse issues as divorce, pornography, sexual abuse, gender dystopia, the LGBT movement and the sub-cultures it’s spawned.”

Morse concluded, “Our Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution will be about healing, hope and unity.”

Ruth Inst. Rejects UN “Gender-Neutral Language” Manipulation

May 29, 2020

For Immediate Release

For More Information: media@ruthinstitute.org

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said the United Nations’ attempt to make language more politically correct is “another advance for the Sexual Revolution and a further descent into barbarism.”

A UN bureaucrat recently tweeted that we need to make language more “gender-neutral” by eliminating the words “husband” and “wife” and substituting “spouse.” Morse noted, “Who controls the language controls the debate.”

“I warned ten years ago during the marriage debates that a necessary consequence of removing the gender requirement from marriage would be de-gendering marriage,” Morse said. “No more ‘husband and wife,” only gender-neutral ‘spouse’ or ‘partner.’”


Morse asked how far this will go. “This process also includes replacing the words ‘father and mother’ to the gender-neutral ‘parent.’ The words ‘son’ and ‘daughter’ become the generic ‘child.’ The end goal of the Sexual Revolutionaries is to remove all references to sex from law and custom.”

Regarding the UN tweet: “There was never a vote to switch from husband and wife to spouse, not even in the UN, where such a vote might have passed,” Morse said. “And there was certainly never a popular referendum on the question. Very few of the ordinary people who supported same-sex marriage had any idea that they were de-gendering marriage. Proponents of the Sexual Revolution are adept at infiltration and subversion of unaccountable bureaucracies.”

Morse urged: “Don’t let them get away with it. Once we start purging the language of gender-specific words, there’ll be no end to it. Each victory will whet the Revolutionary appetite for more. Today’s gender-confused children are, in part, a consequence of our gender-confused law and language.”
