The connections between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood (the largest abortion provider in the US) isn’t the only connection for concern.
Here’s another one: they support legalized prostitution. Follow the trail, if you will. Your local troop sends money to its council, the councils send money to Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA). Not only does GSUSA receive money directly in this manner, it also receives royalties on every box of cookies sold. In turn, GSUSA is a member of, and one of the biggest supporters of, the World Association of Girl Groups and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), which helped draft the Bali Global Youth Forum Declaration demanding governments to legalize prostitution.
It won’t help to say that you didn’t support the Bali Global Youth Forum Declaration because you did. By buying cookies and supporting the Girl Scouts, you enabled WAGGGS to promote an agenda that hurts girls and treats them as nothing more than sexual objects to be used and discarded. Considering the problems we have with global sex trafficking, everyone ought to be concerned with what the Girl Scouts promote. In case you think sex trafficking is a far removed problem, read this article about how the FBI rescued 16 girls (some as young as 13 years old) from sex traffickers during Super Bowl weekend.
In other news, I received an email last week from Lila Rose, president of Live Action, stating that she is joining the boycott of Girl Scouts cookies along with other pro-life organizations. See her letter to supporters asking them to join CookieCott as well. Rose also shared a link to a 2011 video where she interviews Tess and Sydney, two ex-girlscouts who are trying to share the message of how Girl Scouts USA promotes abortion and Planned Parenthood.
And one last item to share with you today has to do with Planned Parenthood (PP). In case you’re still not convinced that PP’s goals don’t mix with the Girl Scout’s goal of the betterment of girls, take a look at how PP uses burlesque shows as fundraisers. From Saynsumthn’s Blog:
Welcome once again the bizarre and sexually charged when raising money for abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
The February 7, 2014, “Legislate This” fundraiser was started in 2012 by Ginger Snaps in Austin, TX.
Legislate This! is a burlesque show fundraising event benefiting Planned Parenthood. This event is described as, “a reaction to the ever growing frustration of living in a state governed by Dick Perry.”
According to organizers, this production is an annual event which brings together the burlesque community to show their support for Planned Parenthood. All proceeds from Legislate This! are donated directly to that show’s local PP chapter.

Maybe it’s just me, but…the time has come to join CookieCott and tell the Girl Scouts that they don’t represent your values. Then maybe they’ll listen and stop associating with organizations that seek to objectify girls and women as sex toys.
