Your View: Link to Planned Parenthood

DIAMOND, Mo. — This letter is to inform the readers that the national headquarters of the Girl Scouts has not changed its affiliation with Planned Parenthood and its anti-life philosophies.

Anna Marie Chavez became the Girl Scouts chief executive officer in November 2011. She planned a billion-dollar fundraiser featuring speakers such as Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Joanna Coles, the editor of the lustful Cosmopolitan Magazine, among other anti-life participants.

Not all Girl Scout councils will reveal their relationships with Planned Parenthood. American Life League launched a nationwide investigation with one-third responding.

Twenty-two percent revealed they had a direct relationship with Planned Parenthood. The girls in the councils that have a direct relationship with Planned Parenthood are indoctrinated with booklets such as “It’s Perfectly Normal,” which contains descriptions, depictions and promotion of sexual acts.

The councils that are not affiliated with Planned Parenthood still support the national Girl Scouts headquarters with their Girl Scout Cookies sales. A portion of the profit from every council’s cookie sales is forwarded to the national headquarters and thus affiliated with Planned Parenthood. The remaining profits are shared with state and local councils.

There are other worthwhile alternatives to the Girl Scouts, such as American Heritage Girls, Frontier Girls Clubs, GEMS Girls’ Clubs and Little Flower Girls’ Club, which are all free of the abhorrent Planned Parenthood and anti-life affiliations.
