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.
40 Years of Roe v. Wade Memorials
Thanks to those of you who helped memorialize the 55 million never-to-be-born babies who have lost their lives since the Supreme Court legalized abortion. Some pro-lifers who did not have an abortion facility near their home chose to have a display at their homes, such as this one by Carol Ann Preston in Carrollton, Texas.
This memorial idea came from Skeet Workman, a long-time Eagle in Lubbock, TX. Her efforts locally were very successful, as this television coverage shows (click on the video tab). She reports that several anonymous letters to their aborted babies were left among the flowers and teddy bears by heartbroken women and some men who lost their children by abortion and sorely regret those decisions. The letters are so touching and represent the reality of the emotional grief experienced by those who have had abortions. One in particular is very heart-rending and is reproduced below:
One Mother Who Chose Life for Her Son
Contemporary Christian singer Mark Schultz has written a song, “Everything to Me,” which is the story of a young mother choosing to place her newborn baby into the care of an adoptive family. A former youth group leader in Nashville, Mark had more than just a pro-life sentiment in mind in this song. He had his life in mind, because that young mother was his mom. You can watch the video of this life-affirming choice.
