…maybe it’s because I am. Or more precisely their poor choice of partners, specifically Planned Parenthood. Until the Girl Scouts acknowledge that an organization that is supposed to edify girls is at odds with itself when they support organizations like Planned Parenthood that promote sexual promiscuity (with all its attendant risks such as STIs, emotional and psychological fallout) and abortion, information like this needs to be disseminated.
Planned Parenthood says that “Healthy, Happy and Hot” has become their most popular booklet. It was handed out at the World Youth Conference in August and early this year at a Girl Scouts USA sponsored event at the UN. A recent online post by the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute sums up parts of the booklet thusly:
Aimed at young people with HIV, the brochure contains sexually explicit language and promotes casual sex with multiple partners, as well as oral, anal, and homosexual sex.
“Some people like to have aggressive sex,” says the brochure. “There is no right or wrong way to have sex.” It encourages young people who might have sex after drinking or using drugs to “plan ahead by bringing condoms.” Another section suggests readers visit family planning clinics for help in preventing or aborting unplanned pregnancies.
The publication encourages youth to keep their sexual activity secret from their parents, as well as visits to family planning clinics. “You should find out whether there are any centers near to you where you can go without needing the permission of your parents or guardians.”
Girl Scouts USA continues to refuse to decry the booklet and it continues to deny that the booklet was given out at their event earlier this year (even though reported by a reliable witness).
