|Grave Concerns about Girl Scouts
1. On March 5, 2004, the CEO of Girl Scouts USA, Kathy Cloninger, appeared on the “Today” show on NBC and stated that Girl Scouts partner with “…Planned Parenthood organizations across the country to bring information-based sex education programs to girls.” Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States and often conducts graphic sex-education seminars in schools around the country that promote homosexuality, pre-marital sex, contraception, and abortion. More details about this deplorable organization are available by clicking on this link: Planned Parenthood - In Its Own Words.
2. At least 25 Girl Scout councils in at least 15 states have admitted to having relationships with Planned Parenthood. Details about these relationships can be found by clicking on this link: Girl Scout USA and Planned Parenthood: Relationships Around the Nation.
3. In 2002, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) awarded it World Citizenship Award to Dr. Nafis Sadik. Dr. Sadik was the Executive Director for the United Nations Populations Fund. This agency was de-funded by President Bush because of its continual aggressive support of forced abortions and sterilization in China . WAGGGS is supported financially by Girl Scouts USA through the Juilette Low Friendship Fund.
4. The Girl Scouts have a printed policy in their leadership books that states that prayer is not allowed at meetings, even when all the scouts are of the same religion.
5. To avoid being sued as the Boy Scouts have been, the Girl Scouts have instituted a policy that allows openly homosexual women to be leaders and camp counselors.
6. In December of 2000, shortly before leaving office, President Clinton hosted an event at the White House where he welcomed leaders of homosexual organizations. Here he debuted a film “That’s a Family” that was promoted by the Girl Scouts. The video was produced to educate public schoolchildren about homosexual families. Connie Matsui, who was the Girl Scout President at the time, addressed the audience and expressed enthusiasm for the film.
7. In 2001, in New Jersey, the Mountain Meadow Girl Scout Camp held a camping session that was advertised as a "femininst camping experience for children of lesbian, gay, transgender ... and other progressive families." One space on the application that children ages nine to fifteen filled out was "Gender of camper: male/female/other (please explain)."
8. In 1993, the Girl Scouts decided that the word “God” was not necessary in its promise and created a policy that allows Girl Scouts to substitute “words they deem more appropriate” in place of “God.”
