We’ve recently ran several articles on the Girl Scouts of America and their pro-abortion agenda: The Girl Scout Propaganda Machine and Girl Scouts Support Abortion and Sexual Promiscuity. These articles also exposed the Girl Scouts’ endorsement of very liberal sexual promiscuity in teaching girls that the only thing they need to worry about were sexually transmitted diseases, but other than that, there is nothing wrong with sexual experiences.
We’ve heard from others who have had similar firsthand experience with the Girl Scouts of America and their relationship with Planned Parenthood. We also heard from others that have had nothing but positive experiences with Girl Scouts and doubted the accuracy of our reports. It is because of these Girl Scout supporters that I chose to write this blog in hopes that it will help convince them of the pro-abortion agenda of the Girl Scouts.
Renise Rodriguez worked for Girls Scouts of Southern Arizona as a girl experience associate. She also attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, where she was a religious studies major. Being a Christian, Rodriguez is also an avid pro-life supporter and often wore pro-life or anti-abortion shirts.
On one of her days off from her job with the Girl Scouts, Rodriguez stopped by the Girl Scout office. She happened to be wearing a t-shirt that read ‘Pray to End Abortion.’ Even though it was her day off and she was not there in any official capacity, she was ordered to either take the shirt off or turn it inside out.
Rodriguez was quite upset and offended by the incident, so much so that later the same day, she resigned from her job. Even in today’s difficult job market, she did not feel that she could return to work for an organization that would treat her that way, even on her own personal time.
She reported her experience to Bryan Kemper who is the youth outreach director for Priests for Life. Kemper commented on the incident and the Girl Scouts saying,
“She went in to work, off duty, to pick up a few things and was told immediately by somebody in the Girl Scouts office to take her shirt off, and that if she was going to stay in the office at all she’d have to turn it inside out. She wasn’t at work, she wasn’t on the clock — and she was pretty offended.
“The Girl Scouts seem to go farther and farther and farther away from any kind of values that they should be teaching young women. And with their connections to Planned Parenthood — and now telling this girl to take her shirt off in the office — it’s absolutely mind-blowing that this organization has gone so liberal and that America’s parents are entrusting their young daughters to the Girl Scouts.”
Parents, please take warning that if you allow your girls to be part of Girl Scouts that they may be subjected to pro-abortion and pro-sexual promiscuity teachings. But fear not as there is an organization that has been started as a Christian alternative to the liberal Girl Scouts. Check out the American Heritage Girls that are opening up in many communities throughout the country and hopefully you will be able to find one in your area. If not, perhaps you could help start one for the sake of your girls and those of your family and friends.
