No More Girl Scout Cookies for Me Until They Stop Supporting Planned Parenthood
Life News ^ | Day Gardner

Posted on 02/05/2014 7:16:49 AM PST by Morgana

In 5th grade, I really wanted to be a Girl Scout like my friends Lorie, Rita and Joann (all white). One day a week, my friends would wear their green dresses with the dark green sashes to school–I wanted so badly to be a Girl Scout.

One evening, my mother took me to a Girl Scout meeting to join. I remember walking in with excitement, all smiles. The leader saw us come in but refused to speak to us or acknowledge us in any way.

Even the girls and the few mothers that were there averted their eyes to avoid looking at us. We sat through the meeting and when it ended my mother went with me in tow to talk to the leader, but the woman actually turned her back to us as we approached. We stood there…waiting.

girlscouts3Finally, my mother grabbed my hand, we turned and walked out. I had a huge lump in my throat–my friends huddled together staring–seemingly afraid to talk to me. I really didn’t understand. I looked back at them with tears welling. My mother jerked my hand hard and said very sternly–don’t look back! She held her head high as we got into our car and drove away.

In school, the next day, my friends acted as if nothing had happened–as if everything was the same. It was never the same for me.

That was the first time I experienced great disappointment with the Girl Scouts organization.

Today the Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) continue to disappoint with its support of Planned Parenthood and others who support abortion. They may try to deny this, however, in 2004; the CEO of Girl Scouts USA, Kathy Cloninger stated on national television that, GSUSA partners with Planned Parenthood organizations across the country, “to bring information-based sex education programs to girls.”

SIGN THE PETITION AND JOIN THE BOYCOTT: We Support the Pro-Life Girl Scout Cookie Boycott

According to a GSUSA spokeswoman Michelle Tompkins every local Girl Scout council is allowed to work with Planned Parenthood and confirms that some have relationships with the baby killing giant. www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwgPf0j4ehs (mark 3:45)

Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas, Girl Scouts Gateway Council and Girl Scouts of Western New York maintain close relationships with Planned Parenthood in coalitions or serve on committees which advocate for abortion and sex education.

Girl Scouts of Western New York works closely with Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups in programs aimed at early teen-aged girls.

Girl Scouts of Northern California refers “at risk” girls to Planned Parenthood for help with family planning.

The almost hilarious thing here–is that Planned Parenthood doesn’t “plan” parenthood. They are in the baby killing business, and killing the baby totally destroys all thoughts of parenting and demolishes hope for a family.

Planned Parenthood is being sued in Chicago for allowing 24 year old Tonya Reeves to bleed to death in 2012 after a botched abortion when a hospital was less than 2 miles away.

In 2002, 25-year-old Diana Lopez went to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Los Angeles for an abortion. Before the day was over, Ms. Lopez–like Ms. Reaves–had bled to death from a botched abortion.

In 2003, 18-year-old Holly Patterson entered a Hayward, California Planned Parenthood clinic seeking a chemical abortion. She died seven days later of an incomplete abortion. There are hundreds of these stories!

Why would the Girl Scouts want to align their organization with Planned Parenthood which besides killing children — is also responsible for emotional distress and physical trauma in women — and in some cases the deaths of young women and girls?

The bottom line is that Girl Scout leadership today promotes an ideology that embraces sexual and reproductive choice to girls encouraging promiscuity and abortion. Mothers need to know this and so do the young girls who hoped to someday wear that spiffy green sash.

That's not enough.....Maybe when they're set up...it's time to say...

"So you think killing babies is okay"..."You're not my kind of role model".

"Buy your cookies?? To support Planned Parenthood? No thanks!!"

She doesn’t say where she grew up but I could see that happening in the south (I grew up in Texas), just after the Civil Rights Act which is about when she would have been that age. Dr. Gardner is African American.

I strongly disagree that you should support the scouts in anyway. It’s been almost fifteen years since my daughter was in the scouts. At that time, I could see from their literature that the group was sliding left. I have read many articles showing that they have a different set of values than I do. If you love your daughter, find some other organization.

Here’s a group that sounds like a good alternative to GS. American Heritage Girls:

I’m with you, the GS should not be supported...even locally. I read, on another thread, that the money raised locally doesn’t primarily benefit the troop. Not sure, but I’ll not support GS, regardless. Enough is enough.

The girls are worth MUCH MORE THAN THAT. They’re worth being informed that the money they collect goes to killing their babies.

I stopped buying them when I read that pervert “scout masters” are common in the Girl Scouts and that there a well known “woman-girl” thing going on with these girls.I didn't know they supported Planned Barrenhood as well.Yet *another* reason to boycott.It's sad for the girls however.

To save me time and allow me to get my message clear and direct as why I'm saying NO to the Girl Scout Cookie hustle at every grocery store, I printed the following note and handed it over to the adult on the line with the Girl Scouts...

Girl Scouts+Planned Parenthood+'Windy' Davis=NO Girl Scout Support

Works for me...no questions, no grief!!

A few days ago I declined purchasing GS cookies and one of the girls started chanting “don’t be greedy, help the needy”. I wanted to tell the adult ( I didn’t see her) that I’m not contributing to an organization that wants Wendy Davis to be women of the year. Also, maybe someone can’t afford to buy cookies and shouldn’t be called “greedy” loudly in public.

I was involved in Scouting for too many years to just walk away from a problem.
