My heart goes out to the little girls selling Girl Scout cookies in front of Fresh ‘N Easy, but I refuse to buy any from them. Why? Girl Scouts supports Planned Parenthood and therefore, abortion rights.
Here’s an excerpt from an article detailing the practice:
There are many significant pro-life concerns about the Girl Scout organization. Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) collaborates with numerous organizations that promote abortion for all women, including adolescent girls. GSUSA is the largest member organization of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), making up a quarter of its 10 million girl members worldwide and paying over 1 million dollars annually to WAGGGS based on the number of registered GSUSA members. Through its resources, participation in international seminars and conferences, and non-formal education programs, WAGGGS actively advocates for and funds campaigns to expand reproductive/abortion rights. Both GSUSA and WAGGGS delegates regularly participate in various UN conferences, and, as representatives of WAGGGS, advocate specifically on behalf of their 10 million girl members for the inclusion of abortion rights on the global stage. The International Planned Parenthood Federation claims a close partnership with WAGGGS. In the United States, regional Girl Scout councils (though not required) are permitted to partner with local Planned Parenthood affiliates. GSUSA is also a member organization of The Coalition for Adolescent Girls, whose international and national agenda specifically supports abortion related care for adolescent girls.
