The Girl Scouts believe in a "values-neutral" agenda

By Tom Quiner

DownloadedFileMore than half of teens have engaged in oral sex.
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.

    Actually the brochure “Happy, Healthy, and Hot” is not about how girls should explore themselves have fun. It’s actually about young people with HIV and how they should continue to have lots of sex even though they have the virus that causes AIDS because sexual pleasure is a basic human right.

    Hi Tom,
    I am a journalist who has covered public policy and worked in media for 25 year and have been following this issue closely for four years. (Got a briefcase with a five inch thick file in it documenting your premise above.) I was greatly disturbed when writing an article on abortion when I accidentally stumbled onto and
    Any good journalist fact checks claims, so that’s what I did.
    It took me many, many hours and about three month of fact checking of all the content of both web sites’ claims, sad to say, I found they all checked out. Girl Scouts own materials the girls read, tax documents, web content, corporate, government, and nongovernmental affiliates and partners were definitely promoting an unofficial agenda of reproductive rights, a redefinition of family.
    The only plausible conclusion from the documentation was that GS remains officially “neutral” but unofficially advances their reproductive rights agenda, duping many families that do not hold those same views.
    I have to say, GS own materials were quite incriminating in proving their reproductive rights unofficial agenda.
    GS international sisterhood World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) opening promotes contraception, emergency contraception and abortion. Slick marketing, double speak, and spin by GS marketing people have successfully deflected some of the criticism, some may be may duped, but being a political person, privy to market messaging tactics, I see right through all the smoke and mirrors. If you want to read more check out National Catholic Register. They ran a three part series on the topic. Also Google, Cathy Ruse and Mary Hassan, reputable women writers who have done substantial research on the topic.
    Thanks for writing about this. I will no longer purchase GS cookies nor will any of our large extended family.
