The Girl Scouts have, in recent years, become a tool of the radical left for indoctrination.
The Girl Scouts have been linked to the nation’s largest abortion provider [Planned Parenthood] in the past. In 2010, a panel sponsored by the Girl Scouts USA at the United Nations Commission featured a Planned Parenthood pamphlet called “Healthy, Happy and Hot," according to published reports. A portion of the pamphlet read: “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 sex and slow sex with their partners. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” (More here.)
That ain't your Grandma's Girl Scouts. I guess selling cookies and community service just doesn't cut it anymore. Some of my granddaughters used to be involved in the Girl Scouts. Not any more. When my daughter realized how radicalized the GS had become, she helped organize a local chapter of American Heritage Girls. This organization better reflects traditional American values:
American Heritage Girls was founded in 1995 in West Chester, Ohio by a group of parents wanting a wholesome program for their daughters. These parents were disillusioned with the increasing secular focus of existing organizations for girls. They wanted a Judeo-Christian focused organization for their daughters and believed that other parents were looking for the same for their daughters.
I've seen some of the fruits of the chapter that my own granddaughters are involved in and it's quite inspiring. They earn badges, awards, etc for community service - very similar to the GS. Last year, they earned badges for their visitation to local nursing home residents. I had the honor of sharing in that activity with them. AHG is a great organization. Check 'em out.
