Girl Scouts OK Pro-Abortion Planned Parenthood Sex Guide at United Nations Mtg
Life News ^ | 3/11/10 | Terrence McKeegan, J.D.

New York, NY (LifeNews.com/CFAM) -- The World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations this week where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute a brochure entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” The event was part of the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) which concludes this week.

The brochure, aimed at young people living with HIV, contains explicit and graphic details on sex, as well as the promotion of casual sex in many forms. The brochure claims, “Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!”

The brochure goes on to encourage young people to “Improve your sex life by getting to know your own body. Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them.”

The brochure also tells students that national laws requiring HIV-positive people to reveal their status to their partner(s) “violate the rights of people living with HIV” and calls for advocacy to “change laws that violate your rights.” It explains, “There are many reasons that people do not share their HIV status. … They may worry that people will find out something else they have kept secret, like they are using injecting drugs, having sex outside of a marriage or having sex with people of the same gender.”

The Girl Scouts, along with the YMCA have been co-moderating a young women’s caucus that included an “Intergenerational Conversation” side event on “universal access” and “reproductive health.” One recent Girl Scout project “aims at securing the right of women, men and adolescents aged between ten and twenty-five, to better reproductive and sexual health.”??

Also at CSW last week, the heads of various powerful UN agencies including the UN Population Fund, UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), UN Children's Fund and the World Health Organization released a “UN Joint Statement” under the name of the “UN Adolescent Girls Task Force,” which calls for their agencies to promote and support programs “that empower … adolescent girls, particularly those aged 10 to 14 years.”

One of the chief priorities for empowerment is ensuring access to “life-skills based sexuality education, HIV prevention, and sexual and reproductive health.”

The New York Times recently reported that UN Population Fund had co-sponsored a very controversial curriculum with UNESCO, that included teaching children as young as five to be sexually active and training adolescents to advocate for abortion.

Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women of America told the Friday Fax, “Governments and NGOs should be aware of Planned Parenthood’s insidious plan to work with UN agencies and girls’ organizations in order to profit from encouraging kids to be sexually active.”

Many years ago, the head writer, (a conservative) at the Plain Dealer in Cleveland did a story about a Girl Scout Group in Cincinnati that was teaching LITTLE Girl Scouts how to MASTURBATE and OTHER things!!! I called G. Gordon Liddy and he contacted the Girl Scout Leader on the air, and the writer, and enough pressure was put on that they closed that group down.....maybe that Lesbian went to the UN!!

I'll never forget the last sentence of that writer's article......."it's enough to make you toss your cookies".

I certainly hope that any Catholic school worth its name cancels any affiliation they may have with the Girl Scouts immediately. And that goes double to people buying their cookies.

The tentative GS camp this summer just went out the window. I know the local people aren’t like this, but no controlling who gets involved at camp.

Girl Scouts are a lost cause, they do not stand for anything moral anymore as an organization. I have seven grandaughters and that was not an issue in our family. And we come from a strong Scouting background, mainly Boy Scouts but we were always hoping that GSA would get a clue. They didn’t, they bought the lie.

Dollar General discount stores sell their knock-off brand, Clover Valley “mint thin” cookies. They are so good and you can’t tell the difference. Best thing is they only cost $1.00.

Seems that the Devil is having a whopping good time these days running freely through just about every American institution.

I suspect those people who are participating in his schemes are about to get their due very, very soon.

I can think of several wrong ways to have sex. Having sex with a girl scout is one of them.

Different topic, but was Planned Parenthood one of the groups supporting President Clinton’s claim that oral sex wasn’t sex?

No, not at the moment. I just signed up this evening to be a Tiger Cub leader. James will start Scouts in the fall.

I expect this news will drive off some of the leaders and families from the troops we had in the homeschool association.

The part about the sexual indoctrination doesn’t much surprise me. Afterall, what would you expect? Girl scouts in my view is nothing but an organization that exploits girls to support a bureaucracy. What percentage of the average troops efforts revolve around selling their cookies? 25%? 50%?

Cui bono?

It certainly isn’t going to the troop. About 50 cents goes to them. The cookies cost maybe 75 cents to produce. A box costs $3. Where is the rest going?

Cui bono?

If you’re going to pimp out girls to sell cookies, how much more of a philosophical leap is it to pimp them out in the more traditional sense? A sexual indoctrination agenda should come as no surprise.

I am a GS co-leader and all I can say is that what the children are taught and exposed to really depends on each troop and the leader/leaders of that troop.

I personally think it would be a shame to dismiss every Girl Scout troop based on the actions of some. If my children (both in scouts for years) were exposed and taught any of that crap, I'd rank them out in a nano-second. But the girls have been been busy attending their meetings at a local church that sponsors them, collecting food and funding for a local crisis center, participating in community cleanups and we intend to send a supply of donated cookies to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hopefully, we'll have enough raised to also give the girls a nice little party at the end of the year. No doubt, they are exposed to much worse at their local public schools.

So the next time you see a little Girl Scout helping in their community or selling Girl Scout cookies, instead of assuming the worst, why don't you ask them (or their leaders) what they are supporting and what they are learning. One of the interesting things about Girl Scouts is that the girls are the ones that get to decide who and what groups they support with their fund raising. As leaders, we can offer suggestions but the girls have to make the final call. ;) Not some yahoos in New York or wherever.

That’s good that the girls get to decide where their share of thw money goes. But it sidesteps the real issue; the bulk of the revenues from cookie sales go right back to the central organization. The troops organize and sell the cookies and do the bulk of the work. And for that the troops receive a pittance. It’s the “yahoos in New York or wherever” who are profiting from this arrangement.

Actually, that's not true, either. The girls in my troop get to keep 25% of their fundraising this year due to size and sales...the rest goes to the local service unit who have employees, building costs and other overhead to manage. The "bulk" of the funding stays local.

I can't stress the importance of getting involved with your (general you) child's activities and getting to know the people influencing your child whether it be Girl Scouts, dance or sports. I just hate to see a good organization summarily dismissed based on what some are doing. We can find examples of people holding ideals we disagree with in just about any group or activity whether it be Little League, dance or whatever. I choose not to let my child play sports in leagues where the coach stresses winning at any cost. I don't allow my daughters to dress like hoochiemamams for dance programs, and I certainly won't allow an organization to promote abortion or sex to them. The worst thing I've seen in all the years I've been involved is they have apparently jumped on the Green Bandwagon. My Junior was reading from her book yesterday and comparing the energy consumption between the US vs. Bolivia, some African countries, India, China, etc. What kind of GS leader would I be if I didn't tell her to go look up the some other facts about those same countries like average life span, access to education, employment not to mention electricity and running water! ;)

It’s flabbergasting. Honest to God, when I was growing up in an average middle-class home in the 50s (and attending Girl Scouts), the two worst things imaginable were reading Classics Comics instead of the real book that had been assigned, and saying a swear word. Anything else fell completely below the acceptable standard. Our graduating class from high school in the 60s almost had graduation cancelled because ONE kid had a beer in his car in the vast school parking lot on the day of the graduation rehearsal. My mother’s highest praise and worst threat were the same words: “I’m going to tell your grandmother.”

I have actually sat down and tried to explain to my grown son what it was like to grow up in a Christian society. His eyes glaze over. It can’t be explained.
