The Girl Scouts haven’t been the beacon of moral example for girls in some time, and their latest event proves just how far they’ve fallen.
According to Life News, one Girl Scout teen organized a project that teamed with the Women’s March in order to further the goals of what these groups refer to as “women’s healthcare”:
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.
While the Girl Scouts claims to lean in no one political direction about abortion, their actions, like the one above, say differently. Add on to that, that Girl Scouts CEO Kathy Cloninger admitted on NBC’s The Today Show that they do have relationships with Planned Parenthood locations all over the nation.
It even goes further than that.
“In a national survey in 2013, seventeen Girl Scouts councils admitted to partnering with Planned Parenthood; other councils refuse to answer the survey question,” wrote Life News. “Of the 315 Girl Scout councils in the U.S., 17 councils reported having a relationship with Planned Parenthood and its affiliates, and 49 reported they do not. The other 249 refused to disclose any relationship.”
According to Life News, they even share exalt abortion activists and politicians, and participate in events that promote abortion:
In 2013, Girl Scouts USA shared a recommendation for abortion activist and former pro-abortion Texas legislator Wendy Davis as a 2013 Woman of the Year on its official Twitter account. The organization also suggested pro-abortion former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as a woman “with courage, confidence, and character.”
Meanwhile, a former national spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts, Kelly Parisi, also was a former spokeswoman for a pro-abortion organization founded by Gloria Steinem.
The Girl Scouts also have been criticized for their involvement in the May 2013 Women Deliver Conference, an international event that included “safe and legal abortion” among its overarching themes. It documents its role in the planning and facilitating of the December 2012 Bali Global Youth Forum and the outcome declaration, which demands youth access to abortion.
It’s clear that the Girl Scouts has a very solid take on their abortion stances, and must seem to believe the organization can play dumb successfully to an audience they must consider dumb enough to believe it.
Aside from participating and promoting leaders in the abortion industry for recognition, they’re now rewarding children for pushing the issue themselves.
