Global Fund For Women (GFW) promoted by GSUSA (note: GFW was promoted to girls by GSUSA for several years from 2005 through 2011. The reference and link to GFW was removed by GSUSA at the beginning of 2012 after our filming. We have a screenshot for you of the original link and badge taken in December 2011 click here. Also see this see this archived link to the official GSUSA Studio 2B website, showing a Girl Scout badge promoting Global Fund For Women: note the date on the top left of the archive Nov 25, 2005. GSUSA exposed girls to GFW for at least 6 years.)
Frances Kissling and Catholics For Free Choice, a “Catholic” abortion rights advocacy group, is promoted on GlobalFundForWomen.org, a website presented to girls by GSUSA (click here to see example of what girls could be exposed to on this GSUSA recommended resource)
GSUSA’s Global Action Patch referred girls to StayTeen.org to find out where pregnant teens should go for help. This GSUSA approved resource sends pregnant teens to Planned Parenthood, the world's largest abortion provider, for “help”. Stayteen.org (where GSUSA sends girls to find out about help for pregnant girls) states Raising a child is hard. Raising a child alone is even harder. Being a teenager is a great time for growing up, getting an education, meeting new people, and having fun–not pregnancy and parenthood. Stayteen.org also tells girls how to obtain birth control without parental knowledge. Click here to see more troubling excerpts from StayTeen.org. The reference to stayteen.org was scrubbed from the badge requirements in 2011 when Girl Scouts received complaints from parents and Catholic youth leaders. Stayteen.org was promoted to girls for over a year on the Girl Scouts USA website. Click here to see an archived link of the of the original badge (be patient, link takes a moment to load) or see a screenshot by clicking here. Look for stayteen.org recommendation on activity #6.

Some Girl Scout Councils partner with Planned Parenthood's "Real Life. Real. Talk." sex-education program. (Note: Real Life. Real Teen. is a project of Planned Parenthood) Click here to see an example of this GS/PP partnership. On the "Real Life. Real Teen." site, "resources to share with your teen" include a website called "Sex, Etc", which contains much troubling content. Among what you could find there is a Question and Answer section that stated that girls should consider that it could be a selfish choice not to have an abortion. Click here to see the screenshot.
