Did you know Girl Scouts is affiliated with Planned Parenthood? Parents pushing those cookies may tell you the money goes towards their daughter’s camp fees or troop fees. But ultimately, ANY moneys given to the Girl Scouts association (including that $12 registration fee every year) is in the hands of the Organization to spend or donate as they wish. A parent or troop leader doesn’t have the final say (or any say for that matter) to where those moneys are allocated.
A parent or troop leader may tell you that the money donated to Planned Parenthood isn’t for abortions, but for well woman exams or even birth control. Girl Scouts does not have the authority to spend Planned Parenthood’s money. Regardless, any money given to Planned Parenthood frees those funds for exams and birth control so that they can perform more abortions at a bottom price.
Girl Scouts has partnered with Planned Parenthood in many ways – they have distributed materials that promote sexual content, birth control options, reproductive rights, and pregnancy alternatives with Planned Parenthood listed as a “helpful link”. Girl Scouts also presents many pro-abortion and pro-homosexual role models and guest speakers. You can also find the Girl Scouts logo on various Planned Parenthood brochures.
Think about that for just a second. We’re spending money on Girl Scout cookies for the GSA to teach our daughters about sexual education and then those dollars are turned around and spent at abortion clinics? “From 2008 to 2009, Planned Parenthood received $363 million in government grants and contracts — our tax dollars. During the same time period, they destroyed the lives of 324,008 unborn babies.” Do you want your money going to the education of sexual promiscuity and pregnancy alternatives to young girls and teens?
I don’t agree with the Girl Scouts agenda and it is our duty to continue telling people about this cause. I believe in teaching sexual purity, however difficult it may be to attain, and I believe in teaching my children to love themselves as God made them. I don’t need a troop of any kind to do this for me.
For those seeking alternatives to the fellowship of girls along with Christian fellowship, look into American Heritage Girls or Little Flowers Girls Club. You can also stand up for your faith and host your own Cookies for Life campaign.
For those who believe Girl Scouts does so much good that it’s okay to ignore the bad, please pray about this. Rather than spending money on cookies, spend your money wisely and send a youth to church camp. Spend your time and make a better impact and take a youth horse back riding, camping, or for a spa day. No troop or organization can take the place of true relationships!
