Local Troops

Local Troops

Across the country, local Girl Scout councils honor and promote abortion rights advocates and pro-abortion politicians, suggest girls work with organizations that fight for abortion on demand, and invite girls to attend events related to abortion rights advocacy
and other controversial issues.

Girls from local troops may also be exposed to pro-abortion groups through Girl Scouts’ official social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter as well as the official Girl Scout blog. Accounts are held by both national Girl Scouts and local councils. Please see our Social Media page to learn more about how Girl Scouts can affect girl members using these social media platforms.

Most importantly, every single member of Girl Scouts is connected to the national (GSUSA) and international (WAGGGS) levels of Girl Scouts through their $12 membership dues. The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) states “anyone who is a Girl Guide or a Girl Scout is automatically a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.” WAGGGS promotes, specifically on behalf of its 10 million members, youth reproductive, abortion, and sexual rights. Please visit our WAGGGS page to learn more about the relationship between individual Girl Scout members and WAGGGS’ pro-abortion advocacy.

Each Girl Scout member sells cookies to raise money for her troop. In reality, the local troop earns only 10-17% of the cost of the cookies, per box. Each box costs a customer anywhere from $3.50 to $5.00 depending on location in the continental US. All the remaining money belongs to the local Girl Scout Council. The council in turn buys prizes to give to the girls depending on the amount of cookies sold and pays for the cost of producing and marketing the cookies (there are two cookie producers in the continental US area). Any profit left over after these costs, which can range from 50-65% of the cost of each box, is left to the council to use at their discretion. Councils can use this money to promote questionable pro-abortion groups and women. Without these cookie sales, these councils would cease to exist. In addition, GSUSA receives a royalty check amounting to millions of dollars from the cookie producers depending on how many cookies are sold annually. The Girl Scout organization depends on cookie sales in order to promote their agenda. Please see our Cookies page for more detailed information.

Additionally, all local Girl Scout council stores in the US purchase all uniforms, books, badges and other merchandise from Girls Scouts USA.  As documented by the Better Business Bureau for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, GSUSA merchandise sales totaled $17,942,000.
