Abby Johnson is a former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director and was also named Planned Parenthood Employee of the Year. Abby worked with Planned Parenthood for eight years. After seeing an ultrasound guided abortion, Abby left the abortion industry and is now a respected pro-life advocate. Abby has recently made multiple comments about the relationship between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood. Here’s what Abby says:
"Nobody loves brochures more than Planned Parenthood. I mean, they have a brochure for everything! You can go out and save the world if you will just take a few dozen of their beautifully branded brochures…of course, you can’t find any information on adoption, prenatal care or fetal development…but I digress. I will never forget the first time I saw a GSA logo on the back of one of our brochures. We had just gotten a new shipment of life-changing (blah) brochures in the mail. I flipped them over and there it was…Girl Scouts of America. Surely this was a brochure about being sexually abstinent, right? Or about keeping yourself safe from violence. Nope. It was about “how to know you are ready for sex.” Really? Girl Scouts? Do Girl Scouts have sex? That was my immediate thought. They are supposed to be selling cookies…not having sex. Wow. So this is where that cookie money goes. I didn’t think much about it at the time. I was, of course, glad to see the collaboration. NOW, it makes me sick." See full story from Abby at this link.
