The Girl Scouts Organization is at it again. Many of us were under the impression that "hey, the Girl Scouts are OK! This Planned Parenthood travesty was just an anomaly involving one super-wacky abortion-supporting Bluebonnet chapter in TX."
Evidently, we were wrong!
Kathy Cloninger, CEO or the Girl Scouts of America, went on the Today Show and had this to say:
"We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with our church communities, with YWCAs, and with Planned Parenthoodorganizations across the country, to bring information-based sex education programs to girls."
Churches and Planned Parenthood?
As a former Girl Scout I have to say I don't remember ever talking about sex at troop meetings or campouts. I do remember going to the blood bank and getting my blood typed, trying pickled herring for the first time, winning a costume contest, making s'mores, hiking, playing "light as a feather, stiff as a board" at a sleep-over at a church with a huge, scary mural of Jonah and the whale on the wall, making friends, weaving mats to sit on outside, earning badges (including the famed "math whiz" badge), etc.
Thank God I was allowed to just be a child in the Girl Scouts and no one was bugging me about sex or using me to make abortion look more valid, innocent and appealing.
I don't like where the Girl Scouts are headed. What's next? Planned Parenthood badges that depict the mythical coathanger with a slash through it? Yeah, I can see it now: you have to escort one woman into an abortion clinic to kill her future Girl Scout and then you earn your badge. Sheesh.
I hate to say it, but their willingness to associate with Planned Parenthood is making me toss my cookies. Until they clean up their act I won't buy another box!
