• ‘Make the Family Great Again’: Leaders Are Recognizing No Strong Societies Without Strong Families

    Surge Summary: The pro-family Ruth Institute is grateful domestic and international leaders are supporting its “Make the Family Great Again”outreach to the newly formed State Department Commission on Unalienable Rights, encouraging it to support efforts to strengthen marriage and family.

    Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of the Ruth Institute, thanked the pro-family leaders who have signed the Institute’s petition to Make the Family Great Again.

    “We’re grateful for the help of so many wonderful leaders, both here and abroad, who’ve been in the trenches of the fight for life and the family and are supporting the Make the Family Great Again petition,” Morse said.

    The petition, co-sponsored with Life Petitions, calls on the newly created State Department Commission on Unalienable Rights to focus on the family in guiding the Department in its dealings with foreign governments and international institutions.

    The Commission is headed by pro-life Harvard Law Professor Mary Ann Glendon, a former ambassador to the Vatican, and a natural-rights proponent.

    Original petition signers include: Ted Baehr (Christian Film and Television Commission), Fr. Shenan Boquet (Human Life International), Brent Bozell (Media Research Center), Patrick Fagan (Marriage and Religion Research Institute), Professor Robert George (Princeton University),  Michael Pakaluk, (Catholic University of America), Jor-El Godsey (Heartbeat International), Mike Huckabee (former Arkansas Governor), Alveda King (author and activist), Steven Mosher (Population Research Institute), and Sharon Slater (Family Watch International).

    Signers outside the U.S. include leaders from Trinidad, Nigeria, Malawi, Canada, Kenya, Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Venezuela, the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Georgia.

    “This is a great opportunity for the pro-family movement to be heard with a petition addressed to a sympathetic State Department Commission,” Morse observed.

    The petition notes that:

    • Marriage and the family are universal institutions for the stability of society and the continuation of the human race.
    • Children need their mother and father.
    • Stable loving families provide the basis for strong societies, including thriving economies, national security, and international peace.

    Therefore, the petition calls on the Commission on Unalienable Rights to work for recognition of:

    • The right of every child to a relationship with his or her natural mother and father, excepting an unavoidable tragedy
    • The right of every person to know the identity of his or her biological parents
    • The right to life from conception to natural death, and
    • The right of families to educate their own children in their faith tradition and values, without being undermined by the state.

    Sign the Petition to Make Families Great Again here.

    The Ruth Institute is a global interfaith non-profit organization equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
