Been in Girl Scouts for 50+ years.

Prove a “direct link”.

Cite facts.

References to family planning resources in books for teens, about teenage health issues? Good luck with purging that.
Abortion is legal in this country and part of any dialogue among teens.

One might say good people talking about it, not ignoring it, is the way to persuade girls to feel free to abhor it.

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.

Stupid comment in 2004 by former GSUSA CEO Cloninger about GS “partnerships” in “many communities”? She is gone. Misspoke, and becoming ancient history except to CNS.

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.

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"?

The UN's agenda is hardly a secret. If the Girl Scout reps didn't know they should have.

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?
