Attorney Cathy Ruse has devoted her career to promoting the dignity of the human person --a career that spans the fields of communication, public policy, law, and language remediation.

This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

Currently, Mrs. Ruse serves as Family Research Council’s Senior Fellow for Legal Studies. She is also Legal Supervisor for Ave Maria School of Law/Culture of Life Foundation Washington Externship Program, and she is a Certified Dyslexia Therapist.

Mrs. Ruse previously served the United States' House of Representatives as Chief Counsel of the Constitution Subcommittee, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops as pro-life spokesman. Prior to her policy and advocacy work, Mrs. Ruse practiced law in Washington D.C. She has testified as an expert in congressional hearings in both the House and the Senate, and she has filed "Friend of the Court" briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mrs. Ruse received her law degree from Georgetown University and her doctorate in Humane Letters from Franciscan University. She holds multiple professional certifications in the field of Academic Language/Dyslexia Therapy.

Mrs. Ruse and her husband Austin received the John Paul II Award for Advancing the Culture of Life and the Defender of Life Award from Students for Life of America. They are the proud parents of two wonderful daughters.

ACTION ITEMS

  • Be very present to your children: As parents, we must be the primary educators of our children in all things, and especially in matters of sexuality. It is from parents and churches that children will hear the good news about God’s design for human sexuality.
  • Teach your children: Sex is for intimate unity within marriage and this union creates children. Marriage is for the protection and benefit of children. Children will understand the true meaning and purpose of sex within marriage, and that marriage is for the protection and benefit of children. Parents must confidently and consistently share these important messages with their children, because their children are not likely to hear them in our culture or in our public schools.
  • You must interfere: Immoral sex ed works best when parents don’t interfere. You must interfere.
  • Help your child organize a club: Choose a focus that will have a positive impact on the school, like a Bible Study club, a Pure Fashion club, a Biology Club, or a Christian Athletes club.
  • Invite a group to review sex ed materials: Invited trusted parents to review your school’s sex ed lessons. Read the actual lessons, watch the videos, and visit the recommended web sites. Do not rely on the summaries provided by the school and do not settle for being handed a packet of home resources to “reinforce” the lesson. Demand to see the actual lessons your children will see.

    Parents may opt their children out of this material whenever and wherever it may crop up—in lessons, school events, assemblies, classes, or any activities that violate their families’ beliefs.

  • Every school year, file the “Universal Model Opt-Out letter” (template provided by Family Research Council):downloads.frc.org/EF/EF19J21.pdf

Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes is an American conservative political activist, pundit, author, former ambassador to the United Nations and Adviser to President Ronald Reagan, two-time major presidential candidate, husband and father. His stated purpose in life, like that of the America’s Founders, is to provide a secure future for our children and our posterity.

Keyes is an unparalleled leader among moral conservatives. His Harvard University Doctorate in Government with its emphasis on our Constitution, his extensive experience in American government, along with his great faith in God’s part in the founding of that government enable him to provide a cogent defense of morality in America! Ambassador Keyes has unashamedly and consistently raised the standard of unalienable rights and Biblical truth in defense of preborn children. He confronts the culture of death with compelling and inspiring reasons why abortion must be banned from our land, and speaks in all parts of our country in an attempt to educate those unaware of the threat to the very existence of the United States. He boldly speaks to bolster the troops!
