Children Need Their Parents!


In this episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to Dr. Mark Rollo’s wonderful interview with Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse on his show, First Do No Harm.

You will hear these two engaging speakers discuss her book The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies are Destroying Lives and Why the Church Was Right All Along

Dr. Morse tells Dr. Rollo of how she transitioned from a seemingly tranquil life as an economics teacher at Yale to a defender of the family and founder of the Ruth Institute.

She tells of the adoption of her son from a Romanian orphanage and the birth of her daughter which led to her having two children in less than six months. This abrupt change in life taught her many things, but most importantly, that children need their parents.

Dr. Morse expounds on three of Ruth Institute’s core values, near and dear to all of us who work with her:

Firstly, that all people have the right to know their cultural heritage and genetic identity. Secondly, that every child has a right to a relationship with his or her natural mother and father, except for an unavoidable tragedy. And thirdly, that we reject the idea that a child is a problem to solve if you don’t want one and an object to purchase if you do want one.

She explains that these are natural principles that arise from simply considering the perspective of the child in society as opposed to the adults needs and wants.

Dr. Morse laments that society treats adults as weak beings who will be crushed if they don’t get what they want and yet views children as strong, resilient youths who will quickly rebound from divorce and other traumas. The end result: adults get what they want while the child’s rights are denied.
