Speak Now: Girl Scouts

One of these days I'll get around to writing more posts on anime... probably after school's out. I really want to focus on anime, related topics, and my faith, but this is important enough to me that I had to post it.

Anyway, on to the true purpose of this post.

I just discovered the site "Speak Now: Girl Scouts". It's a site founded by two teenage girls who decided to leave Girl Scouts after 8 years of commitment because they found out Girl Scouts supports things they don't - namely: Planned Parenthood and abortion, thought it doesn't stop there. Even if you agree with the pro-choice cause, I encourage you to check this site out. I think it's important to know what some of the most respectable organizations in our nation are teaching our kids (yes, yes, I realize I count as a kid depending on the situation).

I found some of the information on this site shocking. I understand if an organization like Girl Scouts gives a little, um, misguided support of the pro-choice cause (count the euphemisms; I'm being nice). However, I did not expect them to undermine the family values I consider so important in as many ways as "Speak Now: Girl Scouts" lists.

Anyone know of some yummy cookies that taste like thin mint Girl Scout cookies?


  1. Wow, very interesting...I didn't know that this was going on. It's very disconcerting to read about the connections between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood, especially since my wife and I have always planned on having our girl join the scouts.

  2. I had no idea either. Then again, I didn't know much about the Girl Scouts beyond their cookies.

  3. That's really appalling. It's one thing for the GS to sort of gently line itself up with leftist political ideas and homosexual tolerance, such is sort of eye-rollingly expected from women's groups, but for a supposedly wholesome youth organization to so strongly push a pro-abortion agenda really sickens me.

  4. @ Anonymous: Exactly. I'm used to tolerating some of the liberal ideas. It's different when they're promoting "pro-choice" agenda to children.
