Pro-life groups recommend not buying Girl Scout cookies

Several pro-life organizations are calling for a cookie-cott.

Girl Scouts USA is launching its annual cookie sales drive. Most of the funds remain with the local troops and councils, but the national Girl Scouts organization – which has been leaning to the left for over a decade – receives several million dollars in royalties. One of the pro-life organizations joining in the request to boycott the cookie sales is American Life League, and Paul Rondeau is a spokesman.

“Far left groups like Planned Parenthood, like Human Rights Campaign, infiltrate these especially pro-family organizations and faith based organizations,” he says. “Specifically so they can first corrupt them, and then coerce them to put their agenda forward on the unsuspecting people that they serve.”

Girl Scouts says they have no direct link to Planned Parenthood, and that's true. But the Scouts use curriculum from the abortion organization that promotes abortion and sexual intimacy to their young members.

“If you check their leadership you will now find appointments at the senior, executive vice president level to sit on boards of family planning groups and abortion groups and the Human Rights Campaign, the pro-abortion lobby,” Rondeau tells OneNewsNow.

He contends "the Girl Scouts is no longer to be trusted," but every cookie sold at least indirectly funds the national organization. He urges people to join the cookie-cott and not purchase the cookies.
