Ruth Speaks Out

This blog is maintained by the Ruth Institute. It provides a place for our Circle of Experts to express themselves. This is where the scholars, experts, students and followers of the Ruth Institute engage in constructive dialogue about the issues surrounding the Sexual Revolution. We discuss public policy, social practices, legal doctrines and much more.


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

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. Third Annual Awards Dinner and Summit for Survivors of the S*xual Revolution – July 17-18, 2020

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.”
