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

Cite facts? Howz' this? Direct link:

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?

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 ( - 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.” 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.
