Buy More Girl Scout Cookies To Prove ‘Pro-Life Wisconsin’ Is Wrong

February 4, 2014

What do you call a group that goes out of their way to undermine the sale of Girl Scout Cookies?

(Come on now–this is a family rated blog.)

Pro-Life Wisconsin is asking its members to reconsider purchasing Girl Scout cookies.  That is just insane and shows who the real radicals are when it comes to this debate.   The vast majority of our citizens understand the need for private health decisions being made by a woman and her doctor is the responsible and ethical way to proceed as a society.   To drag the Girl Scouts into the fray shows just how desperate and underhanded the ‘pro-life’ crowd is when it comes to wanting to get their way.  Therefore buy more cookies this year and lets make sure the Girl Scouts do not suffer financially.

In an email to supporters Monday, Pro-Life Wisconsin said that “while some local troops’ activities may be wholesome, sadly, Girl Scouts USA promotes radically, anti-life women, such as Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, as role models, regularly partners with pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood for ‘educational’ activities, and encourages girls to fight for abortion on demand.”

The annual six-week period of Girl Scout cookie sales kicks off this Saturday.

Pro-Life Wisconsin told its supporters that “approximately 15 percent of each box sold goes to the troop. The rest goes to the regional and national organizations of Girl Scouts USA.”

That’s not true, said Christy Gibbs, a spokeswoman for the Badgerland Council, a regional body that provides Girl Scouting in south-central and southwest Wisconsin. No portion of cookie proceeds goes to the national Girl Scouts organization, she said.

As for the broader abortion issues, the national Girl Scouts association said in a statement that the organization “does not advocate one way or another with regard to what we perceive as private issues best handled by families. Personal matters are just that — personal and private — and should be addressed accordingly.”
