There are 750,000 teen pregnancies each year. 81% are unmarried.
The USA Today reports that 1 in 4 teens have a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
A common STD, gonorrhea, is now becoming resistant to antibiotics. Here’s the solution, says the Girl Scouts of America:
“Youth development, education, health, out-of-school time, social services, and government organizations can have a positive effect on girls and boys as they face decisions related to sexual activity and pregnancy.”
Guess who’s missing from this equation? The family.
The Girl Scouts look down on the family unit, because it is ill-prepared to impart “values-neutral” information regarding the intricacies of sexual expression. Translation: the family may not agree with liberal doctrine regarding sexuality, birth control, promiscuity, and abortion.
The Girl Scouts partnered with Planned Parenthood back in 2008 and have actively taken a leadership roll in influencing our kids’ values regarding sexuality.
They distributed a Planned Parenthood brochure to girls titled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” It touted oral sex as a pleasurable alternative to vaginal and anal sex. It encourages girls to “just have fun, explore and be yourself.”
Many families don’t realize what has happened to Girl Scouts.
I have been a huge supporter of Girl Scout cookies my entire adult life. This is the time of year the girls come knocking. Interestingly, none came to my door last year. Many are church friends who discovered what I discovered, that the Girl Scouts of America support values that are destructive to our kids, and they’re doing it behind parents’ backs. These friends are pulling their kids from Girl Scouts.
I will not be purchasing Girl Scout cookies again.
