  • Wha'd ya expect, from a cigar smokin' gorilla?
This fight may be old  news, but the fact it continues is news worthy in and of itself. That such an organization promotes such a very horrendous, murderous procedure as 'natural' and acceptable, even encouraged, is deXXXXable and points to a larger concern; that women are being brainwashed at an early age to accept abortion on demand as as 'natural' as having your appendix taken out. At least the Boy Scouts are gallantly trying to resist the gay takeover that is rapidly gaining momentum and influence in their ranks. Perhaps this hurdle will be the next one that the Girl Scouts will easily cave on too. Hope not, but it doesn't look like the girls are up to fighting for life... I don't think the boys would be either, sadly.

Sad times...

Girl Scouts USA Threatens LifeNews After Reporting Its Link to Planned Parenthood

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 2/17/14 12:31 PM

During the last two weeks, LifeNews has brought international attention to the link between the Girl Scouts and the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the national boycott of Girl Scouts cookies sponsored by pro-life groups.

The pro-life movement has been concerned for a number of years about the ties between the Girl Scouts and the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Although the Girl Scout organization maintains that it takes “no position” on the issue of abortion, parents, churches, and pro-life activists have long complained of the pro-abortion slant of the Girl Scouts’ resources, role models, and affiliations.

girlscouts5After a series of articles on the boycott and the Girl Scouts-Planned Parenthood link, that featured the Girl Scouts logo to identify the organization, Brian Crawford, an executive with Girl Scouts USA, wrote LifeNews a scathing letter attempting to intimidate us into stopping our reporting on their link and to no longer use their logo or image to identify them as we bring attention to their support for the nation’s biggest abortion business.

In his letter Crawford again denied any connection to Planned Parenthood and he complained about LifeNews.com “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood,” saying “GSUSA has an obligation to protect the Girl Scout name.”

“Girl Scouts of the USA does not have a partnership or any relationship with Planned Parenthood and does not plan to initiate one,” he claimed.

The letter “demands” that LifeNews no longer identify the Girl Scouts using Girl Scout logos as we report on its link to the abortion company that does approximately one-third of the abortions in the United States. The GSUSA letter lists a date by which LifeNews must guarantee the Girl Scouts it “will comply with our demand.”

However, the links between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood are longstanding, with a Girl Scouts CEO and individual troops admitting as much.

Fresh on the heels of Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) sharing a recommendation for pro-abortion Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis as a 2013 Woman of the Year via their official Twitter account, the organization suggested pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as a woman “with courage, confidence, and character.”

Meanwhile, the new national spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts, Kelly Parisi, is the former spokeswoman for a pro-abortion organization — one founded by Gloria Steinem.

The Girl Scouts have been criticized for their involvement in the May, 2013 Women Deliver Conference, an international event that included “safe and legal abortion” among its overarching themes. It documents its role in the planning and facilitating of the December, 2012 Bali Global Youth Forum and the outcome declaration, which demands youth access to abortion.

The ties between the two groups have been questioned ever since former 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.” See the video here.

Then, in a national survey, seventeen Girl Scouts councils admit to partnering with Planned Parenthood; many other councils refuse to answer the survey question. Of the 315 Girl Scout councils in the U.S., 17 councils reported having a relationship with Planned Parenthood and its affiliates, and 49 reported they do not. The other 249 refused to disclose any relationship.

In 2010-2011 Girls Scouts in New York partnered with Planned Parenthood for a sex-ed program, “Real Life. Real Talk.” The program website touts their partners (link has since been removed): “Real Life. Real Talk. is proud to count the following organizations, faith communities and companies as partners: …Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways.”

For fourteen years, the Girls Scouts in Waco, TX co-sponsored a sex ed conference with Planned Parenthood. “It’s Perfectly Normal” a book written by a Planned Parenthood executive was  given to all children in attendance says abortion can be “a positive experience.” And in January 2012, Girl Scouts employee Renise Rodriguez wore a “Pray to End Abortion” t-shirt during off-duty visit to her Tucson Girl Scout office and was ordered to her to turn the shirt inside out or leave.

As LifeNews reported in 2012, the Girl Scouts joined with Planned Parenthood to head a UN conference and LifeNews reported on the investigation the Catholic Church is undertaking into the ties between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups.
One should have an open mind...open enough that things get in, but not so open that everything falls out.

In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair, the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.

A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy.

How the once stalwart cultural institutions which helped form children in self-dependence, moral lifestyle and positive communitarianism have fallen. Not even they are immune, I suppose, to the unrelenting bang of the hyper-sexed, hyper-individualistic, hyper-relativistic culture and its purveyors.

I don't know why anyone is surprised at this. Planned Parenthood is a feminist invention and feminists amount to little more than sex-obsessed individuals with an ax to grind against those "crusty old religious people." If my daughter was exposed to that I'd pull her out of GS immediately and write the troop leader stating exactly why I pulled her out. Parents who are real parents will do that and hopefully the organization will fall flat on its face while ones like the American Heritage Girls blossom.

For too long Catholics have put blind faith and allegiance to the awards and institutions of man. Catholic colleges, hospitals, high schools, etc are all examples of what happens when "good intentions" turn sour because of complacency. Schools are treated like babysitting services these days for 2-income families. Mom and dad are on autopilot and can't be bothered to actually be parents. The clergy also spend more time railing men about issues of lust because most are under the false pretense that women are "sexless angels." Many of today's women would put men of old to shame as far as lust goes yet the pulpit is silent on this matter. Even when the subject of birth control comes up, men end up taking the brunt of the fire. Either you go fire and brimstone with everyone or no one.

Perhaps when LCWR bus shows up at the Vatican with a large following of women to assume command, the cardinals and rest of the clergy will realize that they put too much of the sexual onus on men and not enough on women.

I no longer purchase their cookies.  When you decline to purchase cookies from the kids selling them at every WalMart, Kroger, Target, etc. you get some nasty looks and parents with the girls act like you are a horrible person.  I was going to explain to one over zealous mom why I would not purchase her child's cookies but my husband walked me by them telling me he didn't want me to create a scene.  Some don't take no for an answer.
