A Hoosier lawmaker is standing his ground after making derogatory comments about the Girl Scouts of America. According to state representative Bob Morris of Indiana, the organization sexualizes young girls and promotes homosexuality and abortion. His opinion is based on quite a bit of research into the group, which he claims is aligned with Planned Parenthood.
Morris was openly criticized for his stand on the Girl Scouts by others in the Indiana House. Planned Parenthood of Indiana also denied allegations they were involved with the children’s organization. Even so, plenty of evidence exists otherwise. In fact, a few years back the CEO of the Girl Scouts gave an interview where she stated “We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with our church communities, with YWCAs, and with Planned Parenthood organizations across the country, to bring information-based sex education programs to girls.”
Meanwhile, Morris isn’t backing down, but instead asks those who are unsure to do more research into the connection between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood. He claims that as a result of his findings, he and his wife have decided not to let their daughters continue being girl scouts. Instead, they are joining and alternative organization called American Heritage Girls.
American Heritage Girls are similar to Girl Scouts, but are based on Judeo-Christian values. Girls ages 5 through 18 are welcome to join and there are different levels for each age group. There are troops in nearly every state, and you can find one by visiting the group’s website at http://www.ahgonline.org/.
