Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute, spoke at Franciscan University of Steubenville as part of the Distinguished Speakers Series. In her talk, “Same-Sex Marriage: Why Not?”, she explained that “Children are ordinarily entitled to a relationship with both of their parents… This is justice for the child. And every child has a legitimate interest in the stability of their parents’ union…The stability of the parents’ union is the ordinary way for the child to have a relationship with both of them.” Said Dr. Morse, “Marriage is adult society’s proactive way of protecting the legitimate interests of children, interests which children cannot protect on their own.”
