Perverse Inequality Between Rules for the HIV+ and Vaccine Negative

“The public health establishment is evidently run by sex addicts for sex addicts,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., President of the Ruth Institute. “In a truly perverse move, Illinois decriminalized knowingly putting others at risk of contracting HIV. Meanwhile, New York City will soon mandate COVID vaccination to enter certain public places.”

In repealing a law criminalizing a knowingly HIV-positive person from engaging in high-risk activities, like unprotected sex, donating blood, and sharing needles, Gov. JB Pritzker said the measure will make Illinois a “safer, more inclusive state,” and will advance residents’ “ability to live their lives to the fullest,” as well as remove the “stigma” from the condition.

At the same time, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that beginning September 13, New Yorkers must prove COVID vaccination to participate in indoor activities, like dining in and attending performances. Several states, including New York and California have mandated vaccination for state employees.


Morse responded: "Great. The public health establishment transfers medical stigmatization from HIV+ citizens to unvaccinated but completely healthy citizens.”

Life Site News noted in a story about Pritzker’s move, “HIV continues to be a debilitating, life-threatening illness, with nearly 40,000 diagnoses in the U.S. in 2018.” The lifespan of HIV positive people is nine years shorter on average than their virus-free peers.

Morse explained, “In Illinois, you can knowingly spread this deadly STD without being penalized, while in New York you can be kept out of restaurants and denied employment for refusing to get vaccinated.

“This shows, once again, that advocates of the Sexual Revolution allow nothing to stand in the way of high-risk activity, as long as it’s sexual activity. Shopping, eating, and going to the movies, not so much.”

In a 2020 interview with Vanity Fair, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he saw nothing wrong with meeting potential partners through an app like Tinder or Grindr. “If you’re looking for a friend, sit in a room and put a mask on, and you know, chat a bit. If you want to go a bit more intimate, well, then that’s your choice regarding a risk,” the chief COVID advisor recommended.

“Last year, Fauci was telling us that engaging in intimate activities with someone you just met on a hook-up app was ‘your choice regarding the risk,’” Morse said. “But now De Blasio is telling New Yorkers that for the un-vaccinated to enter a restaurant poses too great a risk. The public health establishment is either intellectually bankrupt or morally incoherent, or both.”

Pro-Abortion/LGBTQ Groups Boast of Getting LifeSite News Banned by Facebook

Pro-Abortion/LGBTQ Groups Boast of Getting LifeSite News Banned by Facebook

Commenting on the news that Sexual Revolutionaries are bragging about getting LifeSiteNews banned by Facebook, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “Now we know who decides on Facebook’s ‘community standards’: the National Abortion Rights Action League, GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign and Media Matters. Big Tech has become a willing servant of the Sexual Revolution.”

On May 4th, LifeSite was permanently deplatfomed. Three days later, Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL, took credit for the move on Twitter, claiming LSN spread “COVID-19 disinformation.”


“Is FaceBook now the final arbiter on which scientific opinions are valid and which are not?” Morse asked. “They’re engineers, not scientists. And when it comes to the scientific community, there’s no consensus. The CDC, WHO and Dr. Anthony Fauci are frequently at odds. How can a difference of opinion justify censorship?

“But ‘COVID disinformation’ had nothing do with what happened to LifeSite,” Morse said. “The site is a powerful voice against the abortion lobby and radical LGBTQ agenda that had to be silenced.

“Since they can’t make the case for their cause, their first and last response is to scream ‘hate’ at the top of their lungs and censor their opponents whenever possible,” Morse charged. “The only surprise here is their audacity in bragging about their success in silencing the opposition Stalin-style.

“Big Tech operates as an adjunct of groups like GLAAD and NARAL,” Morse said. “In February, LifeSite was permanently banned from YouTube, even though its channel had more than 300,000 subscribers and averaged over 50,000 views on its main show.

“For Big Tech, it’s not about business or communications, but enforcing a rigid intellectual orthodoxy which will brook no dissent,” Mores explained. “Family advocates must unite to end these abuses while we still have a voice.”

The Ruth Institute’s Censorship and Propaganda Resource Center documents how social media are riding roughshod over freedom of speech. This will also be discussed at the Institute’s 2021 Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA.

Sodom and Gomorrah Sex Tips from Colorado Dept. of Health

Sodom and Gomorrah Sex Tips from Colorado Dept. of Health

Commenting on a guide to “Sexual health during the pandemic” from the Colorado Department of Public Health, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “It sounds a lot like the guidelines issued by New York City last March. I suppose they had to follow someone’s lead. Sodom and Gomorrah are out of business.”

The health departments in both states recommend masturbation as the best way to avoid spreading the virus. Both suggest avoiding sex “with anyone outside your household.” Also, if you do have sex with multiple partners, “have as few partners as possible.”

“The Ruth Institute offers our own health tip for the people of Colorado,” Morse said. “Have sex with one and only one partner: your spouse. That is a sure-fire way to avoid the spread of disease, including sexually transmitted diseases.”


Morse continued, “Last March, I stated that it sounded like the NYC Dept of Public Health was run by and for sex addicts. Now, Colorado sounds the same.”

Each state recommends prophylactics and dental dams and advises washing “sex toys” with soap and warm water “to avoid transmission and infection.” Colorado further admonishes “disinfect the surfaces where you have sex.” Like the kitchen table?

Morse observed: “These guidelines assume the average person has sex with multiple partners, meets partners online, and has ‘sex toys.’ Such assumptions are a way to try to normalize the aberrant lifestyles favored by the Sexual State.

“How well these assumptions work is demonstrated by the 20 million new STD infections a year in this country. Many are the result of the casual and multiple liaisons that Colorado and New York City take for granted.

“This is typical of the Sexual Revolution, which holds that any type of sexual activity is as valid as any other. If you tried to talk morality to these public health departments, which are evidently staffed by true believers, you’d get a blank stare.” Morse explained.

“Someone who prattles about washing sex toys to counter a pandemic isn’t serious. In fact, quite the opposite. How well the principles of the sexual revolution work can be seen in rising levels of divorce, out-of-wedlock births, pornography addiction, and sexually transmitted disease.

“If insanity were a disease, both the Colorado and New York Departments of Public Health would be in critical condition,” Morse said.

Ruth Inst: Thanksgiving Regulations Mark Too Many as Rulers, Not Leaders

November 25, 2020

“Thanksgiving, more than any other American holiday, is a family holiday,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., President of the Ruth Institute, in a special Thanksgiving message. 

“No matter their religious heritage, on this day, Americans unite in giving thanks for their many blessings. Families long scattered gather together to share food and make memories. In years past, the day before Thanksgiving was always the busiest travel day of the year.”

But all of this has changed, thanks to officious government. Morse charged: “This Thanksgiving, some governors are going wild with COVID restrictions. Some state governments are telling us how many people we can have at the Thanksgiving table.”


Moreover, Morse observed: “Some of the virus-containment rules establish flagrant double-standards. The Mayor of San Francisco tried to limit church attendance in the massive cathedral there to one person at a time.

“Still, sanity will eventually prevail,” Morse promised. “Yes, there are risks involved in travel and gatherings, but many people who contract the virus have modest symptoms or no symptoms at all. The vast majority of people recover fully. We now know that contracting COVID is not a death sentence.

“How and where to celebrate Thanksgiving should be the decision of individuals and families, not government. The so-called experts who are advising the governments, are single-minded in their focus on numbers of cases. They cannot see the collateral damage.”

Morse said this includes:

  • The elderly who waste away from loneliness.
  • The addicts who can’t go to their 12-step meetings, relapse, and lose their sobriety.
  • The people who become depressed and even suicidal.
  • The small business owners who have a lifetime of effort wiped out.

Morse offered a message of hope in this holiday season: “The family is bigger than government. In fact, the family existed long before there were governments. The Bible tells us that humanity started with the family.

“Every totalitarian movement of the past 100 years has despised and feared the family. That’s because the family can stand on its own. Every little household created by a man and a woman can sustain itself, provide for itself, and protect itself. Fathers are natural authority figures. Mothers are natural objects of loyalty and affection. Totalitarian governments hate both.

“In my book, The Sexual State, I point out that a free society like ours does not need or want a ‘ruling class.’ We need and want a leadership class. It has become sadly clear that too many of the people in positions of power, influence, and authority are rulers, not leaders.”

Morse closed her powerful statement with a plea to educated professionals to do their part to fight corruption in their own spheres of influence.
