Yet another link between the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the Girl Scouts has come to light and it is giving pro-life advocates further pause about their involvement in the organization.
Indiana Right to Life has learned the city of Bloomington, Indiana web site in 2009 reported the direct involvement of a Planned Parenthood health and sexuality educator in the development of a Girl Scouts program targeted to girls as young as five years-old.
In its report on the 2009 Woman of the Year and Lifetime Contribution Award, the site notes that Anne Reese was nominated posthumously for the Lifetime Contribution Award. The report continues, Annes career started with Planned Parenthood in Bloomington where she worked for many years as a health and sexuality educator, and helped initiate the Family Life Education program for Girl Scouts ages five to 18 throughout a twelve-county area.
The new revelation comes on the heels of Indiana state representative Bob Morris refusal to sign onto a resolution honoring the Girl Scouts out of concerns over the organizations objectionable partnerships such as the one reported on the City of Bloomington web site.
We are deeply concerned by this new information, states Indiana Right to Life president Mike Fichter. The Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood have both dismissed Rep. Morris concerns as baseless, yet the Bloomington web site could not be any clearer.
Morris became the only legislator in the Indiana House to withhold his support for a resolution honoring the Girl Scouts of America. Fichter says he saw the letter Morris wrote before it drew attention from the media and said it struck him as nothing more than a legislator who performed his due diligence in Googling the term Girl Scouts Planned Parenthood.
What I didnt expect was the giant sound of hyperventilation resonating from coast-to-coast. First it blew up on Twitter, then it blew up on cable, then it just blew up, he said. Overnight, Morris became the target of ridicule, misinformation and worse. Most assume it was because he impugned the reputation of the organization known for those famous cookies weve all enjoyed at one time or the other. But from a different view, Im not so sure all of this noise is so much about the Girl Scouts as it is about once again Planned Parenthood.
Maybe the better question is: why is this guy so concerned? This lack of asking the right question has led every single report that Ive read to overtly ignore the fact that former Girl Scouts of America CEO Kathy Cloninger stated on NBCs Today Show that yes, the Girls Scouts partner with Planned Parenthood. Thats not urban legend, thats YouTube, he added. Call me silly, but when a CEO says her organization partners with Planned Parenthood, I take it that her organization partners with Planned Parenthood.
Fichter notes that concerns over potential partnerships between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood have been percolating since former Girl Scouts of America CEO Kathy Cloninger affirmed on NBCs Today Show in 2004 that the Girl Scouts did partner with Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana is the states largest abortion business, annually doing more than half of Indianas 10,000-plus abortions each year through its four abortion clinics, including its abortion clinic in Bloomington.

The founder of the Girl Scouts Juliette Gordon Low must be rolling over in her grave.
I haven’t bought a GS cookie for quite a few years since they got involved with Planned Predators. Disgusting. I can’t imagine that they’d let these bloody handed monsters anywhere near their girls. How stupid can you get?
How she has changed our culture.
It has been a holocaust.
Just watch how the damn liberals will make that a civil rights issue or call people bigots and other names if they oppose it.
This is unrelated but I just watched Special Report on Fox and noticed when they came to the debates and the contraception question, they did not play Gingrich’s opening salvo regarding Obama and infanticide. That was the most dramatic and damaging remark of the night, yet it didn’t show. I’ve been trying to see if it gets replayed by anyone. It’s always interesting to pay as much attention to what you don’t see sometimes as what you do see.
A good answer to those at work pushing the cookies: “Sorry, I’m pro-life”
There’s a reason why Girl Scouts have NEVER had a problem with the left. You can almost figure out which groups stand where, just by watching the left.
Yeah, no conflict of interest there.
Are you saying that an employee of Planned Parenthood must never volunteer for the Girl Scouts?
How about them apples boy?
Get yer Zot machine warmed up!
Wow—signed up today.
