Are the Girl Scouts linked to the abortion provider Planned Parenthood?

A new pro-life website set up by two teen siblings exposes the links and connections between the Girl Scouts of America and the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Last year, the Girl Scout organization came under fire nationally when the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute a brochure entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” The brochure, aimed at young people living with HIV, contains explicit and graphic details on sex, as well as the promotion of casual sex in many forms.

In 2004, a report from a pro-life group that monitors Planned Parenthood indicated more than one-quarter of GSA troops work with the pro-abortion group. Of the 315 Girl Scout councils in the U.S. at that time, 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.

After learning of these disturbing links, teen siblings Sydney and Tess Volanski decided to leave their local Girl Scout group after eight years of involvement and they have decided to launch a new web site called “SPEAK NOW: Girl Scouts” exposing the distribution of the brochures at the UN meeting and other links between the young girls’ organization and the abortion business.

Sydney told the pro-life group Concerned Women for America, “Even though they denied this involvement … we wanted to make sure that we knew what we were supporting by being a Girl Scout, so we continued to research the connection.”

“We found shortly after this ‘Healthy, Happy, Hot’ issue, that The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts also called WAAG, which is the international organization that Girl Scouts is a part of, had a post on their website demanding safe, affordable, and accessible abortions for women as young as I am, 15,” she said.

[…]In fact, Kathy Cloninger, CEO of the Girl Scouts of America, appeared on NBC’s “Today” show many years ago and said, “We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with our church communities, with YWCAs, and with Planned Parenthood organizations across the country, to bring information-based sex education programs to girls.”

This is not an organization I would send my future children to for any reason.

    Chelsea, you should check your stats. Do you seriously believe abortions are only 3 percent of their REVENUE? Please do yourself a favor and research Planned Parenthood.
    How dare you qoute the bible on behalf of planned parenthood. Do you believe God wants you to do nothing has unborn babies are being killed???

    Thank you for this post! Too few people stand up for truth these days! In my opinion, there is absolutely NO reason why Planned Parenthood should be distributing that brochure to ANY Girl Scout! The use of the word “hot” in the title is evidence enough that Planned Parenthood is not a suitable role model for girls. There are many, many ways for girls (and boys for that matter) to learn about safe sex. First and foremost, is the PARENT!

    And,for the record, the Bible DOES allow for believers to RIGHTEOUSLY JUDGE. That is what is happening here!

    Planned Parenthood is a vital service for millions of women. Only three percent of their business is actually performing abortions. I would rather have my little girl be educated about the dangers of unsafe sex than not be educated at all, and Girl Scouts is a good program and I am glad they have decided to educate young women.

    I’m going to end this comment with a quote from the bible you so cherish. Judge not, lest ye be judged.
