Fighting School Corruption a Part of Ruth Inst. Summit

The Ruth Institute’s Fourth Annual Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA, will include panels on the corruption of education through sexual indoctrination and the transgender ideology.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said, “Each week seems to bring a new revelation about public and private schools indoctrinating children in the Sexual Revolution. In June, the prestigious Dalton School in New York City showed 6-year-olds a cartoon of children discussing masturbation.”


It’s a tenet if the Sexual Revolution that children can’t be sexualized too early,” Morse said. “They’re grooming these kids for exploitation later in life.”

The Ruth Institute Summit will include a talk on “Resisting the Corruption of Education” by Family Watch International President Sharon Slater, and a session on “Legal Strategies for Reclaiming Education” with Maria Keffler, co-founder of Partners for Ethical Care, and Mary McAlister, Esq., Senior Litigation Counsel with the Child & Parental Rights Campaign.

Slater is also the chair of the UN Family Rights Caucus. She has directed multiple widely-acclaimed documentaries, including The War on Children: The Comprehensive Sexuality Education Agenda.

Keffler is also co-founder of the Arlington Parent Coalition and the author of Desist, Detrans & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult. Keffler writes: “Blindsided when a child suddenly announces a transgender identity, a growing cadre of parents have found themselves under assault by an insidious predator: the billion-dollar gender industry.”

McAlister has advocated for parental rights at all levels of federal and state courts for nearly three decades. She has a passion for protecting the innocence of children and has been an advocate for children’s rights, particularly protection from the harms of early sexualization and sexual exploitation.

Morse said, “American schools have become indoctrination cells. Schools belong to parents and taxpayers, not the teachers’ unions, and certainly not Planned Parenthood and various LGBTQ groups. It’s time we reclaimed what’s rightfully ours and moved to protect the innocence of our children.”

Attendance to the “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” Summit can be in person or on-line with a Virtual Conference Pass. Early Bird registration pricing ends July 6.

 

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

Jennifer Roback Morse is the author of The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies Are Destroying Lives and Love and Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village.

Ruth Inst. Board Member Paul Jonna Named CA Lawyer of the Year

Paul M. Jonna, an attorney with the firm of LiMandri & Jonna in Rancho Santa Fe, CA, and a member of the Ruth Institute’s Board of Directors, was selected as a 2021 California Lawyer Attorney of Year in the Constitutional Law Category by the Los Angeles Daily Journal, an honor he shared with his partner Charles LiMandri.

Jonna and LiMandri were recognized for their outstanding work defending a San Diego church against Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order banning indoor worship during the COVID lockdown, treating houses of worship as “nonessential,” unlike retail establishments.


Eventually, the Supreme Court decided in a 6-3 ruling in February 2021, that the state had discriminated against religion by applying stricter standards to houses of worship than retail stores, in violation of the First Amendment.

Regarding the award, Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., commented: “We are so proud of Paul and his association with the Ruth Institute. He’s been in the forefront of protecting constitutional rights against government overreach in high-profile cases involving religious freedom and the Sexual Revolution.”

Jonna represented a California bakery when the Department of Fair Employment sought to force it to make custom wedding cakes for same-sex couples.

He also represented investigative journalist David Daleiden who exposed a Planned Parenthood clinic’s sale of fetal body parts. The abortion industry seeks to punish Daleiden in ongoing litigation. Jonna is Special Counsel for the Thomas More Society in these cases.

On February 21, 2020, Paul Jonna was a guest on the Ruth Institute’s Dr. J Show discussing his work on the same-sex wedding cake and Daleiden cases.

On joining the Ruth Institute’s Board of Directors in 2019, Jonna remarked: “The Ruth Institute’s focus on defending the family and helping victims of the Sexual Revolution is more important than ever in today’s cultural climate.”

Jonna was selected by the San Diego Business Journal as one of the “Best of the Bar” for 2016 and 2017 and was named to the Super Lawyers’ 2019, 2020, and 2021 San Diego Rising Stars list.

Jonna previously worked at national law firms handling multi-billion-dollar cases for a broad range of large corporate clients. He earned a J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law, where he was Comments Editor of San Diego Law Review, and earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Southern California. He’s also a former three-term President and current member of the Board of the St. Thomas More Society of San Diego. Jonna also serves as the President of the San Diego Chapter of Legatus.

Planned Parenthood Despicable for Medicating “Transgender” Youth--Ruth Inst.

Planned Parenthood Despicable for Medicating “Transgender” Youth--Ruth Inst.

“Apparently there’s no longer enough money in the abortion racket. Now Planned Parenthood has found a new class of victims to exploit,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Ruth Institute.

Morse was reacting to an explosive interview with an anonymous Planned Parenthood employee, calling trans kids ‘cash cows.’ The PP staffer told Wall Street Journal that youth who identify as transgender were quickly prescribed cross-sex hormones with no examination of their underlying condition.

The staffer also said that many of those seeking such treatment “showed signs of emotional and mental health issues” and then “are kept on the hook for the foreseeable future in terms of follow-up appointments, blood work, meetings etc., whereas abortions are (hopefully) a one-and-done situation.”


Morse stated, “Our friends who do sidewalk counseling outside Planned Parenthood clinics told us about the increase of ‘trans-minded’ clients, so we weren’t surprised by these revelations. Planned Parenthood has simply found a new way to exploit youth.

“Young women who are often at their most vulnerable visit a clinic and are put on an operating table as quickly as possible,” Morse said. “There is no counseling. No alternatives are discussed. The names of underage women who were sexually exploited often aren’t reported to the police. It’s: Get on the table, put your feet in the stirrups, and you’re done. There isn’t even a discussion of the psychological effects of abortion, like post-abortion syndrome or the increased risk of breast cancer.”

With Planned Parenthood’s recent selling baby parts scandal, “How much more evidence is needed of the predatory nature of Planned Parenthood’s ‘business’?” Morse asked.
