A Call to Boycott — It’s Time to Not Buy Girl Scout Cookies
Did you know what the Girl Scouts of American (GSUSA) has become? Here are a few examples.
- Girl Scouts’ curriculum for girls, sold and promoted by every local Girl Scout council, recommends pro-abortion role models/organizations such as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Geraldine Ferraro, Hillary Clinton, Amnesty Intl., Population Council, ACLU and National Organization For Women (NOW). In addition, the Journey books remind girls that they are counted among the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts or WAGGGS’ 10 million members. This organization advocates for “affordable, accessible, safe abortion”.
- GSUSA and local Girl Scout councils connect girls to resources promoting abortion rights and inappropriate sexual content via official Girl Scout social media accounts. 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.
- GSUSA is a member organization of other problematic groups. GSUSA is a member of The Coalition for Adolescent Girls, whose international and national agenda specifically supports abortion related care for adolescent girls. GSUSA is a core member of the National Council for Research on Women which supports abortion rights and comprehensive sex ed. GSUSA maintains membership in the National Collaboration for Youth, an organization that promotes comprehensive sexuality education, opposes abstinence-only education and seeks to ensure access to contraception for all regardless of age.
- Just in December 2013 GSUSA. via their Twitter account, shared a recommendation for pro-abortion Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis and suggested pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as a woman “with courage, confidence, and character.”
For more information listen to my interview with Christy Volansky, a mom who, along with her two daughters, had to make a decision to leave the Girl Scouts in response to their pro-abortion, anti-family positions.
It’s Girl Scout cookie time again, but can we in good conscious support this organization?
1.) Go to the Pro-Life Waco website specially created for the Girl Scout cookie boycott and print the flyer they’ve created that you can hand to adults who are present at a Girl Scout cookie table that may be set up in your neighborhood grocery store. Don’t confront the girls; they are simply being used to raise the money to operate their local troop (10%-20% of profits stay local) while the counsel gets the rest. Remember every Girl Scout Council in the country is pushing the very liberal curriculum advocated by the national Girl Scouts.
2.) If a Girl Scout knocks on your door and asks you to buy cookies simply tell them “No” and let it go at that.
3.) If your church hosts a Girl Scout troop, ask them to reconsider their association with this organization which advocates for abortion and homosexual rights.
4.) Consider asking your church to host an American Heritage Girls troop.
5.) Check out this website (as mentioned in the interview) to see what your council may be up to.
