Girl Scout Heroines

From the Journeys Book: 'Your Voice Your World: The Power of Advocacy'. These are some of the women who are presented as "Voices For Good", Advocacy Role Models for girls to emulate. In all of the Journeys books we reviewed, pro-abortion champions are promoted constantly, as well as advocates of the same-sex lifestyle. A pro-life champion was only found one time in our review (though her pro-life views were not mentioned at all). Where are the rest of the pro-life champions? Where are the advocates for the sanctity of marriage? Where is the neutrality? (This list is a work in progress.)

Other GSUSA Heroines include:

Pam Smallwood: Waco, Texas Planned Parenthood Director honored as a Girl Scout "Woman of Distinction" in 2004. This issue caused a local pro-life group to discover the Planned Parenthood "Nobody's Fool" workshops that had been sponsored (with printed Girl Scout logo) for years. It was also discovered that this GS-sponsored event was handing out the comic-book-style "It's Perfectly Normal," with soft-porn instructions on masturbation, sexual positions, same sex relationships and reasons to abort. The Girl Scout Bluebonnet Council only stopped sponsoring the event when a cookie boycott was launched receiving national press.

Kavita Ramdas: Juliette Gordon Low Award, Girl Scouts of America 2005, Keynote Speaker at the GSUSA National Convention in 2005, President and CEO of the Global Fund for Women since 1996 (the Global Fund for Women is the largest non-profit foundation in the world funding women's human rights [including abortion])

Recent quote from Wilson's article in Huffington Post "I was chagrined, although not entirely surprised to also see the story chronicling Congress's attempt to defund the best help for mothers and families in America and around the world: Planned Parenthood. I'm just thrilled that I didn't have to read that another state tried to mimic South Dakota's ill-timed and nauseating legislation which would have protected those who murder to "save" the life of a fetus"  

Adrienne Germain: President of the International Womens Health Coalition. This group is among the most aggressive promoters of a right to abortion at the United Nations and around the world. In her bio, Germain boasts being honored as a Girl Scout Woman of Distinction
