Pelosi: Planned Parenthood Relationship to Girl Scouts ‘Very Valuable’ [to butchers]

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 Parenthood’s 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 Scout’s 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 that’s 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 nation’s 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!”

You are not making any friends with this. Maybe you don't care. This story was here on FR recently...get a clue. MY church doesn't tolerate planned parenthood.

As for the girls in the troops, those are the ones that got away....they lived, now planned parenthood is still after them.

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.

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.

"Abortion is legal in this country and part of any dialogue among teens"
 
 
And because this is so.... Any and all evidence that the Girl Scouts are linked to Planned Parenthood is a lie?
 
Perhaps he needs reminding that this is a pro-life site.

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

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?

Look. Upthread you said you've been with the GS for 50 years. So I understand your misplaced loyalty.
 
But understand. The Girl Scouts have left you. And all the other other so-called examples of other organizations having ties to PP doesn't mean a thing. We are talking about the Girls Scouts here. Stay focused.
 
And No. You are still wrong when you say these hundreds of links we are giving you only focus on 3 basic issues. The rot starts at the top, and is filtered down to local states and chapters.
 
Besides the hundreds of WND links I gave you, here are hundreds more from Free Republic.

Not only did I read it, I communicated my concerns to GS in my Council and GSUSA, because I manage over 400 girls in more than 20 troops, half of whom are in troops at our local Catholic parish, as is half of my own troop and my own daughter.

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.

Just Go ogle the words ‘coat hanger’ and ‘abortion’ together and see what you find.

References to family planning resources in books for teens, about teenage health issues? Good luck with purging that.

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.
