Girl Scout CEO Kathy Cloninger admits to a relationship between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood in a 2004 interview on the Today Show. Video Clip (33 seconds long)
On GSUSA’s national Studio2B website there was a direct live link to Planned Parenthood to help girls work on an Interest Project and earn an “On Your Own” patch. This link was up as late as November 2005.
Is the new GSUSA, CEO Anna Marie Chavez (reportedly Catholic) pro-abortion? In 2009 Chavez spoke at a women’s event co-sponsored by the local Planned Parenthood. Would a Catholic be seen at these events? Ideology at work: Girl Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chavez Article written by Mary Hasson, Catholic News Agency 3/1/12
Girl Scouts’ spokesperson, Michelle Tompkins, attempts to explain the relationship between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood. Video Clip Interview was produced by CNS in June 2011
Sandy Thomas, Vice President of Global Girl Scouting/Strategic Alliances, stated in an email dated April 4, 2011: “Through GSUSA’s membership all our girl and adult members are members of WAGGGS. The amount of .44₵ is the approximate amount GSUSA pays per member as the WAGGGS quota is figure on the numbers of members.” After reviewing every detail (including GSUSA’s tax returns) within our WAGGGS page, you will conclude that more Catholic Girl Scout members equals an increased annual “membership quota payment” from GSUSA paid to the pro-abortion advocacy WAGGGS organization.

Links on Girl Scouts Why Not.com
Recent investigations show concerns about the NFCYM, including information on the NFCYM’s own website that link Catholics to pro-abortion organizations. In addition, a book authored by the NFCYM Executive Director, Bob McCarty, provides problematic recommendations to pro-abortion websites. To view more troubling issues please see our NFCYM page.
The Articles page contains very informative articles published in Catholic News Agency, World Net Daily, Life News, The Washington Times, American Life League’s STOPP International, National Catholic Register and many others on the subject of Girl Scouts and their relationship/partnership with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups that are contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
GSUSA is hiding the Truth from you. So, if you contact them with concerns, don’t expect to get straight answers. We have screen shots of GSUSA’s own website proving relationships or partnerships with pro-abortion advocacy groups. See if your local GS council is listed here on our Truth page.
All Girl Scouts are members of WAGGGS through collaborated websites, activities, and finances. This intricate relationship with local Girl Scout troops is extremely disconcerting because WAGGGS promotes and advocates a campaign for “sexual and reproductive health services,” including “emergency contraception in order to avoid unintended pregnancies” and accessible, affordable … abortions” as stated on their website.
Girl Scouts Resources: GSUSA books that are purchased by families at the local Girl Scout council level. Some of the literature lists websites that girls can explore which leads them to Planned Parenthood and other Pro-Choice websites. Some of the books list known pro-abortion women advocates for young Girl Scouts to emulate.
The About page contains information about our “Parents for Life” mission group, our mission goals, and intentions. Our mission group includes 1 former Girl Scout Leader, 4 former Girl Scouts, 4 families and a spiritual director. We launched www.girlscoutswhynot.com on May 8th, 2010. Our mission group is exposing the connection of Girl Scouts to Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion advocacy groups and individuals. We are asking all Catholic parishes and schools worldwide to sever ties with GSUSA and WAGS.
