Some years ago, conservatives reported that there was a connection between the Girl Scouts of America and Planned Parenthood, but at the time, Girl Scouts denied having anything to do with Planned Parenthood or support for abortion.
In time, the evidence linking Girl Scouts with Planned Parenthood and abortions was so overwhelming, that Girl Scouts stopped denying the accusation and justified their association as part of their teaching of women’s (girl’s) rights.
In 2011, it was reported:
“The Girl Scouts has steadily redefined its values by cozying up to Planned Parenthood, homosexual and so-called transgendered groups, and the ultra-Leftist Media Matters through a book published in 2010 titled MEdia.”
“In 2004, the CEO of Girl Scouts USA, Kathy Cloninger stated the following on national television: “We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with our church communities, with YWCAs, and with Planned Parenthood organizations across the country, to bring information-based sex education programs to girls.”
In 2014, a boycott against Girl Scout cookies was called for, as reported:
“‘The Girl Scouts was once a trusted organization dedicated to character building in young girls and women. Now, GSUSA is abusing that trust,’ said Judie Brown, president of American Life League, the nation’s oldest Catholic pro-life education and advocacy group.”
“‘Most parents and grandparents remain painfully unaware the GSUSA has introduced so-called ‘family planning’ ideology in its curriculum and promotes groups like Planned Parenthood to our daughters and granddaughters,’ she said…”
“It was on NBC in 2004 when Kathy Cloning, CEO of the Girl Scouts, admitted the group ‘partners with Planned Parenthood across the country to bring information based sex education programs to girls’.”
“The STOPP program run by American Life League, which monitors Planned Parenthood, earlier surveyed 350 councils to ask if they had any involvement with the abortion provider. Eighty percent refused to answer, 17 councils said they did and 49 said they don’t.”
Now, there is more evidence that Girl Scouts of America not only supports abortion but is rewarding girls who promote the first-degree murder of unborn innocent children:
“The Girl Scouts’ support of abortion is growing increasingly apparent in the information age.”
“Its materials, social media accounts and more point to the organization’s pro-abortion bias. One of the groups exposing it, MyGirlScoutCouncil.com, posted more evidence Friday on its Facebook page.”
“Breitbart reports the group discovered that the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona recently honored a teen for her volunteer work on ‘reproductive health justice’ – an umbrella term that includes abortion on demand. Meghna Gopalan, recently profiled in a Tucson publication, received the Gold Award, the Girl Scouts highest honor, for her work.”
“Her project involved working with the pro-abortion Women’s March and its affiliate in Tucson. She said her goal was to ‘educate people about and destigmatize access to women’s healthcare’ — euphemisms for abortion.”
“Her comments to the local news also suggest that abortion was a focus of her project and she worked directly with a pro-abortion organization.”
“‘I’m planning on hosting an event to educate people about and de-stigmatize access to women’s healthcare. I’ve been working with El Rio Reproductive Health Access Project, and they offered ideas on reproductive health justice which would broaden the scope of the project a little bit. I got interested in the topic with the Supreme Court nomination of [Brett] Kavanaugh…’ Gopalan said.”
I haven’t bought a Girl Scout cookie in several years because of their pro-abortion stance and the fact that this is what they are teaching young girls across the country. At one time, this organization taught tens of thousands of girls solid moral values, but as liberals infiltrated their hierarchy, the solid moral values have been replaced with liberal immoral values and as such, I for one strongly advise every parent to pull your daughters out of Girl Scouts before they too are indoctrinated with their immoral agenda.
