"What happened to the Girl Scouts?"
First asked (and answered) in 2000 by Kathryn Lopez of The National Review Magazine...
and by us, a year ago, in August 2004.
This time, it's asked due to their choice of a keynote speaker who is the head of the pro-abortion "Global Fund for Women." The group was co-founded by Frances Kissling, now head of "Catholics for a Free Choice."
Just an FYI: there's at least one "alternative to the Girl Scouts ... a rapidly growing movement called the American Heritage Girls [already in their 11th year apparently]. American Heritage Girls is committed to "Building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country." Kind of sounds like what the Girl Scouts' promise used to be: "On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, to help people at all times and to live by the Girl Scout Law."
