    Surge Summary: In the face of reports Roe v. Wade may soon be overturned, Sexual Revolutionaries are correct to be concerned about what other of their perverted sacred cows might come down. Precedent is not sacrosanct. Are decision against “same-sex marriage” soon to follow?

    “The Sexual Revolutionaries fretting over gay marriage and contraception are not wrong,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “Once the Court stops propping up the Sexual Revolution with so-called rights invented out of thin air, a lot of ‘settled issues’ are up for grabs.”

    “Although in his draft of a Roe decision, Justice Samuel Alito said it would not impact other so-called rights, like gay marriage, logic would suggest otherwise,” Morse observed.

    Roe v. Wade was decided over 49 years ago,” Morse noted. “But Obergefell v. Hodges – which mandated homosexual marriage nationwide – was only decided in 2015. Doesn’t that make Obergefell a less important precedent?”

    “The Supreme Court found rights in the Constitution that simply aren’t there. There’s no right to privacy, which the Court claimed to find in the First Amendment. This imaginary right to privacy was the foundation for Griswold and Eisenstadt as well as Roe. And there is no right to gay marriage in the 14th Amendment,” Morse explained.

    “Part of the original Bill of Rights, the First Amendment was enacted to protect freedom of speech and religion. It says nothing about privacy, let alone abortion.”

    “The 14th Amendment was ratified after the Civil War to prevent Southern states from abridging the rights of ex-slaves. Only justices bent on legislating from the bench could interpret that as requiring same-sex marriage nationwide,” Morse charged.

    “The Court frequently changes its mind about divisive topics,” Morse said. “In the 1858 Dredd Scott decision, it said slaves are property. In 1896, it said ‘separate but equal’ in education was constitutional. In 1954, it said it was not.”

    “There is one important difference between Roe and Obergefell though,” Morse continued. “Roe galvanized the pro-life community and created a vibrant authentically grassroots nationwide movement. After Obergefell, proponents of marriage threw up their hands and said, ‘Oh, well, we tried,’ and moved on to other issues. The right-to-life movement never gave up and has had many successes.”

    “We are fighting transgenderism today, precisely because we lost and gave up on marriage in 2015. Obergefell de-gendered marriage, which led to removing gendered words from legal documents. ‘Husband’ and ‘wife,’ were replaced with ‘spouse’ or ‘partner.’ ‘Mother’ and ‘father’ became androgynous ‘parents.’ No wonder we’re fighting transgenderism in schools.”

    “If the Supreme Court does recognize a right to life, it gives hope to those of us who never gave up on man-woman marriage.”

    The Ruth Institute’s upcoming 5th Annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution June 24-25 in Lake Charles, LA, will feature a keynote speech by Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America. There will be multiple sessions on gender ideology, and Morse will present: “Defending Traditional Christian Sexual Ethics like a Pro.”
