Quit the Girl Scouts Over Their Planned Parenthood Connection

“Do not pass along false reports. Do not cooperate with evil people by telling lies on the witness stand.  Do not join a crowd that intends to do evil. When you are on the witness stand, do not be swayed in your testimony by the opinion of the majority.” Exodus 23:1-2

Do you think we should have pro-lifers go work for the abortion industry?  Couldn’t they do good work in there?  I mean, surely they could talk women into saving the lives of their babies, right??  Would you support that?  Probably not.  Why?  Well, we don’t believe in cooperating with evil.  Even if you were trying to do your best to save babies, you would still be working for the organization that kills them.  We certainly couldn’t promote that.

Do you know that many people do promote this exact same scenario?  They do this with the Girl Scouts.  The Girl Scouts are directly affiliated with Planned Parenthood, our country’s largest abortion provider.  Planned Parenthood put out a brochure entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.”  This brochure was distributed to thousands and thousands of Girl Scouts.  The intended audience is girls aged 8-16.  Here are a few excerpts from the brochure.

“Sex can feel great and can be really fun! Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. Sex can include kissing, touching, licking, tickling, sucking, and cuddling. Some people like to have aggressive sex, while others like to have soft and slow sex with their partners. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!”

“Improve your sex life by getting to know your own body. Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Don’t stop there: find out how your partner’s body works, what makes them feel good and what gives them pleasure. Talking with your partner about what you each like and what feels good is the best way to have great sex.”

“Your skin is the largest erogenous zone on your body, and your mind plays a big role in your desire for sex and sexual pleasure. Caress and lick your partner’s skin. Explore your partner’s body with your hands and mouth. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them. Tickle, tease and make them feel good.”

I am a parent of a small child.  I would never want her to see such filth.  But the Girl Scouts promotes this agenda.  Any money that is given to the Girl Scouts goes to their national office…this includes money for uniforms, badges, cookies, annual dues, etc.  That money is then, in part, used to associate with Planned Parenthood.  No one can say that “their troupe” does not give money to Planned Parenthood.

If you are a member of the Girl Scouts organization and you pay dues and you sell cookies and you have uniforms with badges, then you are in association with Planned Parenthood.  Period.  How could anyone who says they are pro-life cooperate with such evil?  How could anyone who is against abortion contribute in ANY part to the killing of children…especially if they KNOW that their money is going toward such activity.

Scripture is clear.  We must NOT cooperate with evil in any way.  We MUST cleanse our churches and our Christian faith of such evil.  We CAN work to educate others about Girl Scouts without being active participants…just like we do with Planned Parenthood.  I no longer work at Planned Parenthood, but I feel like God is using me to inform people about the dangers of the organization.  People who have been involved with Girl Scouts can do the same…and live with a clean conscience.

A quote from Girl Scouts CEO, Kathy Cloninger, “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.”

How much more evidence do you need?  We must remove ourselves from such evil.  We cannot allow ourselves to participate “from within.”  We must get out.  We must stand up for truth, with a clean conscience and clean heart.

There is an alternative…American Heritage Girls.  This organization is a REAL Christ-centered, scouting organization that does not contribute to Planned Parenthood.  There is an option.  There is no reason to allow your girls to be subjected to Planned Parenthood’s radical anti-life and anti-family agenda.  For more information on American Heritage Girls, please visit www.ahgonline.org.
