Pelosi: Planned Parenthood Relationship to Girl Scouts Very Valuable By Elizabeth Harrington February 1, 2012
(CNSNews.com) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Planned Parenthoods relationship with the Girl Scouts of America is very valuable, Wednesday, at a congressional reception to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the organization for young girls.
Rep. Pelosi was featured at the reception with a group of female government leaders to promote the Girl Scouts new initiative To Get Her There, which seeks to create gender balanced leadership in one generation.
After the event CNSNews.com asked Pelosi: The Girl Scouts has had some ties to Planned Parenthood, do you think thats a valuable relationship to have working together?
The Girl Scouts have relationships with many organizations, Rep. Pelosi replied.
And, yes, I think they are all very valuable.
The Girl Scouts have been linked to the nations largest abortion provider in the past. In 2010, a panel sponsored by the Girl Scouts USA at the United Nations Commission featured a Planned Parenthood pamphlet called Healthy, Happy and Hot," according to published reports.
A portion of the pamphlet read: 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. Sex can include kissing, touching, licking, tickling, sucking and cuddling. Some people like to have aggressive sex, while others like to have soft sex and slow sex with their partners. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!

Is that all you got?
No facts, so shoot and duck.
ah yes I have, my daughter pulled herself out of it and we addressed it to the leader
She too had no idea but did some research and now is thinking of dropping the troop.
BTW She is a very nice conservative lady but she said she felt sick the the stomach when she did her own research.
I hope this video of the CEO of the Girl Scouts saying they partner with Planned Parenthood to bring information based sex education to girls acceptable...even if I found it on that darned internet.
Back at ya, troll.
See post 22.
Wonder how many potential girl scouts got sliced up and sucked out.
Bet they would like to have had some input on this “choice”.
I see you were already aware of the quote which you claim was stupid and “she misspoke”.
Pardon me for believing the CEO of the Girl Scouts.
and what church is that?
does it have ties to any national or international organizations that have “ties” to family planning? All are extremely liberal (why I left)
and so do the Jews from what I know.
How about Salvation Army? Red Cross? UN? Ties to PP.
Your church immmunize its work from their agencies and literature?
If you want to find ties between PP and virtually any organization (some you are part of), you can do it
Did you READ the article I gave you? You are not responding to it at all....just more fluffy comments. Broken record.
Have you even noticed that all those stories in those links refer repeatedly to the same 3 things?
GSUSA CEO Kathy Cloninger’s stupid comments in 2004. She is gone.
That UN youth conference in 2010 where a non-GS organzation left shockingly distasteful youth sex literature in the room where the GS were among teens attending a meeting. Literature not produce by, distributed by, or planned for the conference by GS.
References to family planning topics and links for teenage girls to research in teenage womens health literature. As if this constituted GS promotion of abortion anymore that similar literature at schools, colleges, doctors offices and even many churches.
Is that all they got?
What is the anger really about?
I do fault GS for trying so hard to become “socially relevant” and “hip” to teenage girls and doing way too much touchy feely “leadership” “girl power” workshop crap ... and closing down too many camps.
You lost me. All the girls scouts I knew when I was a kid had plenty of hangers, and they already knew how to hang their coats. I suspect the same is true for the 8 year olds I see selling cookies now. So why would they include coat hangers?
The answer straight from GIRL SCOUT HQ IS
Girl Scouts HAS NO DIRECT TIES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
We are a federated organization
The Councils are free to make their own relationships and partnerships, as part of the United Way and other nonprofit community participants.
Nation's Capitol and Baltimore Councils, which is where cookie money that does not go direct to the troops stays, HAVE NO TIES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. NONE. NADA. ZIP.
Furthermore, we GS Troops and Councils don't make donations. We receive them.
The priest in the parish cited in the article was obviously confused if quoted correctly, because “WAGGGS” (World Associationof Girl Scouts and Girl Guides) is the international Scouting organzation based in London. Yes, we are members of the international organization of 145 countires that have GS and GG.
But so is Boy Scouts a member of a World Scouting Organization that embraces homosexuals and mixed sex troops, unlike BSUSA.
The international scouting organizations for boys and for girls are very liberal, dominated by europeans and growing 3rd worlders (surprise), and heavily tied to the United Nations agenda.
Mostly, I and every other leader I know....ignores them, and mostly ignores National too.
Maybe they get $2 of our $12 annual GSUSA membership fee.
One final fluffy ill-informed comment from me. Did you know England has more girls joined in Boy Scouts (now just called Scouts) than it does boys? It ain't Robert Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts ay more.
read what I just posted
Just Go ogle the words ‘coat hanger’ and ‘abortion’ together and see what you find.

There is a difference between purging it and the Girl Scouts PROMOTING it.
Abortion is legal in this country and part of any dialogue among teens.
I guess we should be grateful that the Girl Scouts weren't around to promote slavery.
One might say good people talking about it, not ignoring it, is the way to persuade girls to feel free to abhor it.
Is this your way of saying that abortion should be "safe and legal and rare" or that it's "above your paygrade"?
Tangential presence of teen Girl Scout reps at a UN conference meeting several years where sex literature from a 3rd party was left in the room? Bad but unplanned.
The UN's agenda is hardly a secret. If the Girl Scout reps didn't know they should have.
