Dr. Laura Haynes retired from psychological clinical practice after more than 40 years. She now speaks and writes about same-sex attraction and discordant gender-sex identity change. She served on the board of the International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice and chaired a committee of the National Task Force for Therapy Equality.

Dr. Haynes worked on research for the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity and was a consultant for the American College of Pediatricians. She also served as president the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, Western Region. She is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the American Psychological Association.

While Planned Parenthood pushes its contradictory narrative regarding choice, Haynes’ group, The International Federation for Therapeutic and Counseling Choice, or IFTCC, is the “home for the once-gay, those coming-out and the de-transitioners, because we’re free to choose.”

“We train activists to defend the legal right to therapy," Dr Haynes explains. "So these would be therapists, pastors, journalists, attorneys, former LGBT-identified people.”

The IFTCC maintains legislation based on unscientific notions is not only wrong, it’s harmful. Dr. Haynes: “There are underlying causes that need attention that are being denied today. I think this is medical malpractice.”

In the name of choice, Planned Parenthood, et al., are eager to deal with unwanted pregnancies by killing the child. But when an individual wants an alternative to handling unwanted feelings that contradict the abortion chain’s narrative, choice is out the window.

Lauren Enriquez grew up in Houston, Texas and graduated from Ave Maria University with a degree in Classics and Early Christian Literature.
Being anti-abortion has been part of Lauren's identity since she learned what abortion was in early childhood. She couldn't understand how a nation that had the moral clarity to end slavery and strive toward race relations could legalize and abide the injustice of mass abortion on-demand. Exposure to abortion victim photography and testimonies from post-abortive parents and former abortion workers solidified her draw toward activism as a preteen, and she has been engaged in the fight ever since.
Lauren was involved in a pro-life youth group in high school, AMU Students for Life in college, and took a semester off from university to serve as a field agent for SFLA in 2008.
Lauren has appeared on EWTN, various podcasts and radio shows, and has written for outlets including The New York Times, Crisis Magazine, The Human Life Review, Townhall, and The Stream. 
Lauren currently resides in Texas and serves the Pro-Life Generation as Students for Life of America and Students for Life Action's Deputy Media Strategist. This work includes coordinating with media to speak into cultural conversations around abortion, and assisting with written communication and effective messaging strategies.
Lauren can be contacted at [email protected].

Kristan Hawkins is a Christian, wife, mother, grassroots activist, author, speaker, Podcast host and a human rights advocate. President of Students for Life of America and Students for Life Action, she was recruited in 2006 to launch Students for Life of America’s full-time operation. Since then, she has built up a small organization made up of a few dozen student groups scattered around the country to a coordinated national team that serves 1,200+ Students for Life chapters in all fifty states and has trained over 100,000 young people.

Kristan hosts a weekly podcast “Explicitly Pro-Life” found on iTunes or YouTube. Under her leadership, Students for Life exists to abolish abortion by transforming our culture by recruiting, training, and mobilizing this pro-life generation, who are the direct targets of today’s abortion industry.
She graduated from Bethany College in 2005, summa cum laude, with a Bachelor’s in Political Science. Before launching Students for Life, she served at the Republican National Committee and as a presidential appointee in the George W. Bush administration at the Department of Health and Human Services. In 2016 and 2020, she served on then-candidate Donald Trump's Pro-Life Advisory Council.
Kristan has interviewed on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, the Today Show, CBS, ABC, and HBO and has recently received the title, “One of the 4 worst anti-abortion misinformers,” by Media Matters, a title of which she is very proud. Kristan has spoken at Yale, Harvard, Dartmouth, and UC-Berkeley and countless other college campuses. Her proudest accomplishment is being a wife to her high school sweet heart (Jonathan), raising her four children and, in her free time, building awareness for cystic fibrosis, a disease shared by both her son, Gunner, and daughter, Gracie.

Scott Klusendorf travels throughout the United States and Canada training pro-life advocates to persuasively defend their views in the public square. He contends that the pro-life message can compete in the marketplace of ideas if properly understood and properly articulated.

Scott has appeared on nationally syndicated Christian programs such as Focus on the Family,The Albert Mohler Radio Program, Lee Strobel’s Faith Under Fire, Hank Hanegraaff’s The Bible Answer Man, Dr. D. James Kennedy’s Truths That Transform, Richard Land’s For Faith and Family, Tim Wildmon’s American Family Radio, Kerby Anderson’s Point of View, Todd Wilken’s Issues Etc., Todd Friel’s Way of the Master, Billy Graham’s Hour of Decision, and Moody Radio’s Prime Time America, as well as various secular talk shows.

Nationally, Scott has debated or lectured to student groups at over 80 colleges and universities. His debate opponents have included Nadine Strossen, President of the ACLU (1991-2008) – Kathryn Kolbert, an attorney that has argued for abortion rights in a United States Supreme Court case – and Kathy Kneer, President of Planned Parenthood of California.

Each year thousands of students at Protestant and Catholic high schools are trained by Scott to make a persuasive case for life. Scott is the author of The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture, and co-author of Stand for Life.  Scott has also published articles on pro-life apologetics in The Christian Research Journal, Clear Thinking, Focus on the Family Citizen, and The Conservative Theological Journal.

Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship, said: “Scott first grabbed my attention when Focus on the Family featured one of his presentations on its national broadcast. I was struck by his ability to communicate truth so clearly and insightfully. I’ve heard many speakers who deliver excellent content, but few who can actually equip people to communicate their pro-life convictions to a secular culture. In fact, I was so impressed with Scott’s talk that I phoned him directly to learn more about his work. After that, I scheduled him as a keynote speaker for our own Breakpoint conference.”

Scott is a graduate of UCLA with honors and holds a Masters Degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University.

Timothy Laws is a member of the Board of Advisers for the Alliance for the Family Foundation Philippines, which offers advice to the Board of Trustees. Alliance for the Family Foundation Philippines, Inc., popularly known as ALFI, works to influence leaders and decision-makers in Philippine society by providing them with accurate and complete scientific information and education, so they can foster and defend the sacredness of marriage; promote family solidarity; and protect human life in all its stages.

Timothy grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania.  He studied engineering in college, and after college, became a partner in a small businesses.  He wanted to do something to help make the world a better place, and at the time, hunger and starvation were one of the greatest injustices in the world. He volunteered with an NGO that works to enlist the resources of the U.S. to alleviate hunger both at home and abroad.  After a few years, Timothy met his wife through that work  -- she was also a volunteer from the Philippines, who had come to the U.S. to study.  They fell in love and married within a year, and lived in Pennsylvania and later California.  In 1996 they moved to the Philippines.  "We’re still here," Timothy says, "and we continue to try to make the world a better place in our own small way.  That’s what attracted me to my wife – in addition to her winning smile – in the first place."

Study regarding the actual effect on aggregate fertility by contraceptives.  This is the link to a copy of that paper:

The rise of divorce, separation, and cohabitation in the Philippines:

Paper with much of the information about contraception discussed, including a reference to another paper by Grant Miller, which reached the same conclusions:

Philippines Statistic Authority vital statistics report showing births are steadily decreasing, "due in large part to the influence of entertainment and news media, and governmental promotion of contraception":

Jennifer Johnson’s book, "Marriage and Equality":

Mr. Laws: "Apologies, during the interview I stated that Prof. Pritchett’s paper showed that only 5% of the reduction in fertility was due to contraceptives, but I’m reminded by the paper that the actual figure is 10%."

Deborah DeGroff became interested in the subject of children’s books when her oldest child began to read. While perusing the then-current literature of the eighties, she noted the qualitative difference between those books and the books she had read as a child. Upon more investigation, her curiosity shifted to concern. Thus began a lifetime of research and a resounding cry for parents to look inside their children’s books.

"I never wanted to write a book," Debbie explains. "I just wanted to make parents aware of what’s inside these books and encourage them to begin reading their own children’s books. I wanted to teach them what to look for as they read."

The end result of Deborah’s research and concern is the book, "Between The Covers: What’s Inside A Children’s Book." In the book, she connects the "dumbing down" of school books to a simultaneous shift from moral instruction to amoral, and ultimately to today’s immoral indoctrination of our children.

"Dr. Judith Reisman emphatically let me know that I was going to die with that knowledge in my head and that I needed to write a book," Deborah explains. "You can be assured that I embarked on this journey kicking and screaming."

Deborah and her husband have four children and "lots of grandchildren."

Ruth Institute Messaging Document
Updated November 2021

The Ruth Institute is an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a Civilization of Love.

Founded in 2008 by world-renowned author, speaker and academic Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, The Ruth Institute equips people to understand, appreciate and defend traditional Christian sexual ethics by providing scientifically sound evidence, carefully reasoned arguments, and compelling personal testimonies.

The Ruth Institute has a Dream that all children be welcomed into life in a loving home with their own mother and father, married to each other.

The Ruth Institute believes that:
• All people have the right to know their cultural heritage and genetic identity.
• Every child has a right to a relationship with his or her natural mother and father except for an unavoidable tragedy.

The Ruth Institute rejects 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.

The Ruth Institute upholds the ancient Christian teachings about marriage, family, and human sexuality. These teachings are today sometimes regarded as exclusively “Catholic,” but in fact, Judaism, and most Christian groups, historically taught many of the same things. The Ruth Institute works with individuals and groups, religious or otherwise, who share our views, in whole or in part, regardless of their positions on other issues.
