Girl Scouts Join Planned Parenthood at Huge Pro-Abortion Conference
http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/31/girl-scouts-join-planned-parenthood-at-huge-pro-abortion-conference/ ^

Tell me who you hang out with and I’ll tell you who you are.

Anna Maria Chávez, CEO of Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA), offers this pithy saying as her favorite quote. In order to figure out who the Girl Scouts are, I suppose we must follow Ms. Chávez’ logic and look at the organizations that GSUSA associates with.

A good place to start would be the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). WAGGGS has member organizations across the globe, the largest of which is GSUSA, contributing approximately a quarter of the ten million members that belong to WAGGGS. GSUSA is a co-founder of WAGGGS and one of WAGGGS’ largest financial supporters, paying over $1 million each year in membership fees which are triggered by each girl and adult member’s annual GSUSA registration.

The global organization is a well-known advocate for sexual and reproductive rights, including abortion, for youth, and claims to speak for all of its 10 million members.

At least the Girl Scouts are still thinking about heterosexual relations. The Fabulous Boy Scouts announced that Gerbil Patrol will be a new option for patrol names. </sarc>

“World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS)”

Oh, I get it. It says ‘World Association’ so we should give a damn.

Is GSUSA the same “Girl Scouts” that sell Girl Scout cookies? If so, I’ve bought my last box of GS cookies.

I won’t buy any either. (I always thought they were over-priced, mediocre cookies anyway....never understood what the fuss was about.)

Girl Scouts: The Girl Scouts of the USA’s LGBT-inclusive policies have drawn the ire of right-wing groups. “Girl Scouts of the USA and its local councils and troops value diversity and inclusiveness and do not discriminate or recruit on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, or physical or developmental disability,” reads a statement on the organization’s blog. To an ultraconservative group called Family Watch International, this amounts to “special rights based on sexual orientation or gender identity.” On its website, the group claims, “Girl Scouts of the USA is increasingly promoting LGBT issues to girls by featuring prominent LGBT rights activists as role models at Girl Scout events, in Girl Scout materials, and by referring girls to websites that aggressively promote special LGBT rights.” Among the “role models” right-wingers find objectionable: Houston mayor Annise Parker, an out lesbian, whose city hosted the Girl Scouts’ 2011 national convention. A Houston Chronicle editorial countered the conservative “grumblings” by saying, “It’s startling to realize that an event as wholesomely routine as the mayor’s welcoming a Girl Scout convention to town could ever count as an act of bravery. But it does – and it’s the kind of brave inclusiveness that the Girl Scouts have always stood for.”

WAGGGS is dominated by European liberals and agenda-driven 3rd worlders,and yes GSUSA is a member of the World Scout Organziation along with 144+ other countires that have Girl Scouts and Guides

But then, so is the uber liberal World Organization of Scouting, of which BSUSA is a member

It is hypocritical to say that GSUSA is just as radical as WAGGGS, because then we would have to say USA is just as radical as the UN, to which we belong and to which we send a great deal of money and even the lives of our soldiers

When you cozy up to the UN for any youth programs ... look out

Both the Baden-Powells must be rolling in their graves over the corruption (largely by wealthy liberal Euro-crats) of their fine ideals for Scouting/Guiding

the fuss was that many years ago the Girl Scouts started baking cookies to send to troops overseas in WW1

Then after WW1 they kept baking cookies to sell to support their troop activities. Back then girls baking cookies was considered a useful domestic skill and a harmless and even enjoyable treat people could buy to teach the girls the value of work and skills in setting goals

In WW2 cookies went n hiatus due to butter, sugar and flour rationing, but then many GS helped in Red Cross and other paramilitary organizations, bond drives etc

after WW2 cookies returned but as a commercial bakery product as more women now were working, and out of the home and kitchen

and it continued from there

The girls in our Council alone have sent tens of thousands of boxes of GS cookies to troops overseas and the USO cupboard at BWI airport is full of GS cookies given to troops and families passing through...all purchased with money donated to and by mostly 7-11 yr old girls while they are selling cookies

We have yet to hear of a troop who spit at them, called them names or refused a box of donated cookies because of the national CEO’s presence at conferences attended by “planned parenthood”

and BTW National gets no proceeds from cookie sales, except from the bakery that pays royalties for the logo and name. All cookie money goes to local Councils and troops and virtually none have any dealing with Planned Parenthood. I know neither ours nor the 2 neighboring Councils do

Girl Scouts USA gets 30 percent,
Cookie Revenue

Where does my money go when I buy Girl Scout Cookies?
With every purchase, approximately 70% of the proceeds stays in the local Girl Scout council and with troops to provide a portion of the resources needed to support Girl Scouting in that area, including the portion that goes directly to the group selling the cookies. The balance goes to the baker to pay for the cookies.

Does any of the money from cookie sales go to Girl Scouts of the USA (the national Girl Scouts organization)?
Girl Scouts of the USA is paid a royalty for use of the licensed trademarks by its licensed bakers based on gross annual sales volume. Girl Scout councils do not provide any portion of their cookie revenue to Girl Scouts of the USA, and no other revenue from cookie sales goes to Girl Scouts of the USA. Girl Scouts of the USA provides contractual services and approves all program, marketing, and sales materials developed by the bakers. GSUSA also provides coordination and training for national media, safety standards for girls and volunteers, our world-renowned girl-leadership program, and full support during cookie season.

well, your first sentence doesnt make any sense but the rest of your comment is almost a direct quote from QA about cookie sales, which benefit Councils and troops, not GSUSA in NYC

Here’s direct link to national blog site
http://blog.girlscouts.org/2013/01/its-official-national-girl-scout-cookie.html

cookie money goes to the bakers and to GS Councils and Troops. For a $4 box of cookies my troop makes about $.75 because the girls earned their way up to top level incentives. When someone donates money at a cookie booth, they use it to buy extra boxes of cookies and donate them to First Responders in our community - their decision

We have also “bought” cookies (or “biscuits”) by making donations to Girl Scouts and Guides in New Jersey, New Zealand and Japan after natural disasters disrupted their cookie sales..looks like we’ll be buying cookies from Councils in Oklahoma this year

Last year, the Girl Scouts decided to admit boys who dress as girls—which shouldn’t come as a surprise, says FRC’s Cathy Ruse, since they have a cross-dresser in their front office. And that’s not all. “Earlier this month, a Girl Scout Employee... made the mistake of stopping by the office to do extra work on her own time in a T-shirt [that said] ‘Pray to End Abortion.’ A supervisor ordered her to turn the shirt inside out or leave the office. She left, for good.” So, says Cathy Ruse, should we all.

http://www.girlscoutswhynot.com/ Sandy Thomas, Vice President of Global Girl Scouting/Strategic Alliances, stated in an email dated April 4, 2011: “Through GSUSA’s membership all our girl and adult members are members of WAGGGS. The amount of .44₵ is the approximate amount GSUSA pays per member as the WAGGGS quota is figure on the numbers of members.” After reviewing every detail (including GSUSA’s tax returns) within our WAGGGS page, you will conclude that more Catholic Girl Scout members equals an increased annual “membership quota payment” from GSUSA paid to the pro-abortion advocacy WAGGGS organization.

Dear fatima,
Little Flowers is an alternated for Catholic girls. My daughter participates in this. I’d let her sit at home and comb her hair out of boredom before she EVER becomes a Girl Scout.

I saw that.

I gave up on girl scouts many years ago. It was out in certain circles they were giving to PP.

It doesn’t take a big leap of credibility.

This isn’t news. The GSUSA has been indoctrinating little girls in the realm of contraception, abortion, and sexual experimentation including homosexual sex for several years now.

They have a radical feminist agenda & even if your local scoutmaster dosen’t think alomg those lines, their “curriculm” and reading/book list definately promotes those values. And dues money along with cookie sales empower their agenda by keeping the org afloat.

All Christians should shun this evil organization. I will not endanger my daughter’s soul by involving her in this.

and teaching skills and building memories for a whole lifetime for many many girls, just as other GS leaders did for me

Just recovering from taking over 150 kids (and 75 of their parents) camping last weekend, many for their first time

so LOL LOL LOL .... what did you do last weekend and how many people’s lives did you affect for the better?

Affect for the better? So an org that encourages little girls to embrace the contraceptive culture affects them for the better? I think not. I refuse to allow my daughter to be influenced by something so destructive.

So go ahead & keep lying to yourself about the Girl Scouts’ radical feminist agenda. Not me.

And as far as what did I do last weekend & how many lives I affected, I could positively influence more people by sitting at home praying the rosary for them than deluding them into accepting the culture of death promoted by the Girl Scouts.

And as if its any of your business, I worked last weekend at a children’s hospital caring for children undergoing surgery.

Don’t try to sell your BS to me about GSUSA. Take it somewhere else

Pray that rosary for yourself too, sister
Catholics helped elect obama and virtually every other US politician that brought the cuture of death to our nation
Amen

BTW we were at a YMCA camp last week, ya might want to to protect your daughter from the YMCA, and the YWCA too. Oh when you skip the GS cookies, skip the Salvation Army bellringers- more agents of abortion

and her teachers dont belong to the NEA, right? More contacts with and open support to Planned Parenthood

Presumably you have vetted the hospital you work at to make sure you are not taking a salary from any medical organization that has any contacts with Planned Parenthood, such as attending conferences where PP advocates are also attending or presenting any material or literature

and surely you vetted that your hospital doesn’t perform abortions or refer women who seek them to other abortion providers - probably with resources provided by ...... Planned Parenthood

and make sure that the CEO and execs of your hospital and its umbrella corporations, donors, grantmakers, medical suppliers and its big pharma suppliers and everyone in the food chain NEVER never attends conferences in company with execs from, makes money from or donates money to any cause than benefits .... abortion

otherwise you would be a hyocrite, no?
And worse than me, a paid employee of an organization or many that directly support “the culture of death”

Now we shall agree to disagree on what constitutes “support” and I shall take my BeeEss to another year of GS planning, membership is up!

Oh I do pray the rosary for myself. As for those “catholic” voters, most of those are catholic in name only but I suspect you already know that. And I suspect you also know the Catholic vote alone couldn’t have elected Obama; he scored big with the Protestants, too. But lets stick to the thread topic, shall we?

Yes, I’m well aware of who the YMCA & YWCA support, as well as the Salvation Army. I don’t support those organizations, nor various medical societies that propogate the destruction of embryos for research (American Cancer Society). The hospital I work for does not provide abortions nor does it support PP, not even thru United Way.

You must be so proud to support PP via your involvement with the GSUSA. If you are, I’ll pray for you, and might I suggest FreeRepublic isn’t the forum for you. You should take your support for Planned Parenthood over to the DU
