I hate to pick on the Girl Scouts, but the following message came from RNC For Life:

It’s Time NOT to Buy Girl Scout Cookies Again!
Hard as it is to say “No, thank you” to a cute little Brownie Scout, pro-lifers really need to NOT buy those cookies, the major fundraiser for the Girl Scouts USA, an organization who partners with pro-abortion organizations such as Planned Parenthood. As a co-founder and current member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), GSUSA apparently approves of the Association, whose programs aggressively promote abortion and comprehensive sexuality education and train girls to “talk about sex,” and which partners with pro-abortion organizations like International Planned Parenthood (IPPF) and the World YWCA.
Click here to see where the explicit and controversial “Healthy, Happy and Hot” booklet is prominently displayed on the website of WAGGGS partner, the World YWCA.
No wonder so many churches are rethinking their sponsorship of Girl Scout troops (just as they are now rethinking their sponsorship of Boy Scouts if the BSA decides to admit homosexuals as leaders at their May meeting). Many concerned parents are choosing a traditional values-based alternative for their daughters, American Heritage Girls. And they also are baking their cookies at home or buying them at the local bakery or supermarket.
