Two ex-Girl Scouts challenge organization’s ties to Planned Parenthood

    Some would say if you even think of speaking out against abortion, you are marked as against a womens' rights.  These would be the same people who constantly harp that when you speak against this President's policies it is just because you are a racist.
   You probably will not see this story on the mainstream news but you should still see that even in this day and age of politically correctness, some young girls can still think for themselves and are not afraid of you hearing it.  This story brings to mind what the Boy Scouts went through when they wanted no homosexual scout leaders, which at that time was all over the media.
    Gone are the days when a young kids is allowed simply to ride a bike (helmeted) or go for a Sunday ride in the car (strapped in or facing backwards) for ice cream with Nana and Grampy .  Yes, ice cream....that is still legal isn't it?

May 20, 2011 ( - Two teen girls who dedicated years to the Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) have gone public with their decision to leave the popular girls’ organization out of alarm over its ties to Planned Parenthood.
Tess Volanski, 14, and Sydney Volanski, 15, say they decided to leave their Girl Scout Troop after eight years, and they describe their process of disillusionment in their blog Speak Now: girl scouts.
“Leaving Girl Scouts was not a casual, easy, or convenient decision,” say the girls. “Girl Scouts was a huge part of our lives that included a bond with our best friends.”
The girls write on the blog that “the first eye-opening, and quite honestly, jaw-dropping, example” of GSUSA’s acceptance of Planned Parenthood’s (PP) ideology was the organization’s involvement in a United Nations workshop that distributed the PP sex education pamphlet “Happy, Healthy, and Hot.”
The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as “just about vaginal or anal intercourse.” “There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” it states. Although a representative of the Girl Scouts denied that the pamphlet was distributed at the meeting, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, which broke the story, stood by their report and pointed out that a stack of the pamphlets was found in the conference room where the meeting was held moments after it ended.
