Pro-Life Groups Launch National Boycott of Girl Scout Cookies Over Abortion Ties
By Life Site News On February 3, 2014
National pro-life groups have banded together to launch a boycott of the sales of Girl Scout cookies over the ties the organization has to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and how it has promoted pro-abortion groups and activists.
The pro-life movement has been concerned for a number of years about the ties between the Girl Scouts and the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Although the Girl Scout organization maintains that it takes "no position" on the issue of abortion, parents, churches, and pro-life activists have long complained of the pro-abortion slant of the Girl Scouts' resources, role models, and affiliations.

SIGN THE PETITION AND JOIN THE BOYCOTT: We Support the Pro-Life Girl Scout Cookie Boycott
The groups made their announcement via an article in Brietbart News:
Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation, who recently gave the keynote address at the March for Life Rose Dinner in Washington, D.C., is a champion for adoption over abortion.
"The Girl Scouts still proclaim to be honest and courageous, while denying their continual collaboration with the nation's largest and undeniably dishonest abortion chain," Bomberger said. "Abortion doesn't make the world a better place, unless you agree with the deeply racist and elitist pseudoscience of eugenics - the foundation of Planned Parenthood."
Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League commented , "As the father of six girls, I'm extremely disappointed by the Girl Scouts' increasing collaboration with Planned Parenthood, an organization that aborts over 150,000 unborn baby girls every year."
Similarly, Jim Sedlak of the American Life League told Breitbart News, "Through their continued support of the Culture of Death, the Girl Scouts have betrayed their heritage and their future. There is nobody who should purchase Girl Scout cookies to fund this group."
