Facebook May Be Liable for Trafficking, Court Says

On Friday, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that Facebook may be held liable for sex traffickers who use its platform to prey on minors.

The social media giant denies responsibility and claims it has no way to police such postings.


Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D, responded, “Facebook is showing its true colors. It has no trouble censoring conservatives and shutting down groups whose speech offends its politically-correct sensibilities. They could certainly shut down child exploitation if they wanted to. But Facebook is part of the Global Ruling Class and the Sexual Deep State.”

Morse noted that in May, Facebook permanently deplatformed Life Site News, supposedly for spreading “COVID-19 disinformation.” The real reason, Morse said, was that, “The site is a powerful voice against the abortion lobby and radical LGBTQ agenda that had to be silenced. This could be seen in the fact that a number of groups like the National Abortion Rights Action League and the Human Rights Campaign took credit for the move.

“You must appreciate the irony here,” Morse observed. “Facebook claims it can’t monitor sites that promote the sexual exploitation of children, but it can scour its platform for sites that promote what it calls ‘disinformation’ on COVID-19.”

Facebook isn’t the only tech giant with a double standard. In August 2020, Amazon stopped selling The Health Hazards of Homosexuality: What Medical and Psychological Research Reveals, claiming the book contains “content that is considered offensive,” despite having sold it for several years.

Morse asked, “Offensive to whom? How can medical science be offensive? Apparently when it runs contrary to Big Tech’s political agenda.” To counter this Tech tyranny, the Ruth Institute developed a Censorship and Propaganda Resource Center.

“Amazon says a book of medical and scientific research on the health hazards of homosexuality is ‘offensive,’ but offers books like The Joy of Gay Sex and Fist Me! A Guide to Anal Fisting.”

Morse concluded: “Apparently, the sexual exploitation of minors does not offend Facebook’s nebulous community standards.”

The Ruth Institute’s 2021 Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, will be the premiere event for leaders, activists and professionals fighting the Sexual Revolution.

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

In First Presidential Debate, the Family Was Lost in the Shuffle

In First Presidential Debate, the Family Was Lost in the Shuffle

“family

“Last night’s confrontation between President Trump and former Vice-President Biden shows the need for a separate debate focusing solely on family issues,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

Partnering with Life Petitions, the Ruth Institute has a petition calling for a debate on family-related issues. More than 6,000 signatures have been collected.

Morse observed: “Last night’s debate covered the Supreme Court, COVID-19, the economy, and race and violence, among other pressing concerns. It was entirely predictable.

“This is all well and good, but the family lies at the heart of all of these concerns,”


Morse noted. “Urban crime and violence are spurred by the decline of the family in inner cities. Strong families are the foundation of a strong economy. Intact families have found it easier to weather the coronavirus storm.”

Morse explained: “It’s a case of missing the forest for the trees. At the root of many of our most perplexing problems is the decline of the family, and a revival of family values is the solution.

“Some people claim that it ‘takes a village to raise a child.’ We think that is code for ‘let the government raise children and run the family.’ We at the Ruth Institute believe exactly the opposite. We believe it takes a family to raise a village, or a community, or a nation.”

Morse added: “Families in America want to know what the candidates would do to end the horror of abortion (currently verging on infanticide), if they would declare pornography a public health crisis (as have 16 states), what they would do to stop sex-trafficking, if they’re concerned about so-called transgender medical procedures for minor children, if they support using U.S. foreign aid to force developing nations to adopt Western-style laws on abortion and homosexuality, and how they would strengthen man-woman marriage, currently under attack on so many fronts.

“Last night’s debate in Cleveland strengthened our commitment to promoting a presidential debate on family issues,” Morse said.

Sign the Ruth Institute/Life Site petition calling for such a debate.

Ruth Inst. and Life Site News Launch Petition for Presidential Debate on the Family

Partnering with Life Site News, today, the Ruth Institute launched a petition to the U.S. Commission on Presidential Debates calling for a 4th debate to be focused on the family.

Ruth Institute President Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., explained: “The decline of the family is at the root of most of our problems. We’re calling for one debate focused exclusively on what the candidates will do to support the family.”

She continued: “Honestly, I’m shocked that we even have to state this obvious point: Every human life begins with a family. Every significant challenge the United States faces can be improved by strengthening the family. The breakdown of the family and the over-sexualization of society create massive problems affecting the economy, the criminal justice system, public health, education, and even national defense. The rioting in our cities is in part the result of family breakdown.”


Three debates are scheduled on September 29, October 15, and October 22, to cover public health, including COVID 19, public safety, the economy, and defense/foreign policy.

Morse said, “These are all important issues to be sure. But unless something is done immediately, the family will once again be ignored. Issues like marriage, the right to life, parental rights in education and health, sex education in schools, pornography, population control, and declining fertility will be overlooked entirely or treated as an afterthought.”

She added: “We believe this is the first time such a debate has been proposed by anyone. We at the Ruth Institute and our friends at Life Petitions think it’s about time.”

Sign the petition here.
