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!”

Pelosi also said: ‘Planned Parenthood is nice to have associated wth the Girl Scouts in case a boy who thinks he’s a girl decides to try lesbian sex while camping and makes the girl pregnant.’/s

Responsibility2nd has links about the connection between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood; I'm pinging both lists because GS also teach and promote all kinds of leftist immoral agendas including premarital/extramarital sex and homosexuality. They AREN'T your grandmother's Girl Scouts.

Oops - I had an open window ready to post and went and did things, and came back and hit “post”.

It’s a good thread with good info, so I guess it’s okay!

"Been in Girl Scouts for 50+ years. Prove a “direct link” Cite facts.

Cite facts? Howz' this? Direct link:

http://wordsfromcana.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/girl-scouts-leadership-pro-choice-pro-gay-ideologues-worlds-apart-from-the-families-they-serve

Among other things, the article says this: "In recent years, the Girl Scouts have tacked left, and criticism has mounted–over their programs and their partnerships with America’s leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

(As an aside, the Scouts mislead families and churches into believing that they have no relationship with Planned Parenthood at any level) They maintain that “Girl Scouts of the USA [i.e. the national office] does not have a relationship or partnership with Planned Parenthood,” but say nothing about the many local Girl Scout councils that do partner with Planned Parenthood and its teen subsidiaries.

Concerned Scouts and their parents have publicized and documented the Girl Scouts’ liberal bent. And they’ve asked for changes.

The Girl Scouts consistently respond as if the reported problems are small brush fires that erupt sporadically because people are careless. And they project the impression that these brush fires would die out on their own, but for the hysterical bystanders—conservatives, of course—who shriek at the first wisp of smoke."

Then add to that that the national office brags (did I say “brag”?) that 85% of their staff are lesbians, and you can see (if you really want to) that the whole organization is corrupt as hell.

And by the way, the statement you made about abortion being legal, well, so was slavery. Each and every abortion is premeditated murder upon the most helpless of unborn Americans. Too bad you feel as you do. There used to be Christianity in Girl Scouts . . . but not no more! Huh?

Embarrassed? Frightened is more like it. I wish the Bishops would speak out more against Catholics who support abortion and same sex marriage. How come they continue to receive the Eucharist?
The Bishops waited to speak out on these issues until the horse was out of the barn. Maybe if we had heard more from them earlier,Obama wouldn’t have had the nerve to remove the conscience claus from ObamaCare.

“As a Catholic, I continue to be embarrassed at all the fake Democrat Catholics that populate high positions in our government.”

I am embarrassed that neither the last pope nor this one has declared them anathema.

Vladimir Lenin would be proud of Madam Pelosi - not as in “madam speaker,” but as a Madam trying to indoctrinate and prostitute young girls for Planned Parenthood.

Howz' this one? I'm not being snarky, but if you've been affiliated with Girl Scouts for 50 years, as you've said, then how could you have missed this disgusting connection with these beastly organizations? Explain, if you can.

WASHINGTON, February 2, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - When asked about Girl Scouts of America’s (GSUSA) connections to Planned Parenthood, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the relationship between the two groups is “very valuable.”

CNSNews.com asked the former House Speaker following a Girl Scouts-sponsored event, “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, and, yes, I think they are all very valuable,” Pelosi replied.

Pelosi had been featured at the reception to promote “To Get Her There,” a new initiative by GSUSA to promote women’s leadership. While the national branch of Girl Scouts has recently been denying the organization’s relationship with Planned Parenthood, on March 5, 2004 Girl Scouts CEO Kathy Cloninger admitted on NBC’s The Today Show: “We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with…Planned Parenthood organizations across the country.”

In national survey in 2004, sixteen Girl Scout councils admitted to partnering with Planned Parenthood, around 25% of the councils who responded to the survey. Most did not respond, however.

The Girl Scouts/Planned Parenthood controversy erupted anew in 2010 after it was revealed that the scouting group distributed a graphic sex education pamphlet by Planned Parenthood entitled “Happy, Healthy, and Hot” during an event at the United Nations headquarters. Last month, a Catholic parish in Virginia banned the Girl Scouts from meeting on church grounds over the Planned Parenthood connection.

In January a teenage Girl Scout employee who wore a “Pray to End Abortion” t-shirt to work during off-duty hours was ordered to turn the t-shirt inside out or leave.
