The Girl Scouts and Pro-Abortion WAGGGS
The background facts below describe controversial events that occurred at the same UN conference where the graphic "Healthy, Happy and Hot" brochure was found in the Girl Scout meeting room. For additional information see the International Planned Parenthood section of this website.
- At the 2010 UN Commission on the Status of Women, ten Girl Scouts from the United States along with GSUSA spokesperson Joshua Ackley lobbied at the United Nations as a support team for the delegation representing the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
Click here to see disturbing information about Joshua Ackley.
- At this 2010 United Nations conference, girls on the WAGGGS delegation demanded that governments provide access to abortion.
- After WAGGGS reported on their website that their girls promoted abortion at the UN, Girl Scouts of the USA was confronted by a number of their pro-life members, asking them to disassociate from WAGGGS.
- Subsequently, WAGGGS removed from their report the language that showed that Girl Scouts had been promoting abortion at the UN.
Click here to see the two versions of the page on the WAGGGS website: the first with a demand for abortion rights and the second after they scrubbed the reference to abortion.
- The fact that WAGGGS scrubbed their report to remove the evidence showing that they were promoting abortion does not change the fact that they were openly promoting abortion at the UN.
- At this UN conference WAGGGS also demanded that governments provide youth with “access to comprehensive sexuality education,” which is one of the most controversial children’s issues debated by UN Member States in UN negotiations. This is because “comprehensive sexuality education” is used to sexualize children and to undermine traditional family values.
Click here to see how “comprehensive sexuality education” is used to undermine many of the values parents are trying to teach their daughters.
- WAGGGS delegate Nefeli Themeli gave a speech on the UN floor at this conference promoting “sexual and reproductive health and rights” and education on “sexual orientation.” Phrases calling for sexual and reproductive health and rights are highly controversial at the United Nations because they are often used to advance abortion and LGBT rights. Click here to read excerpts from Nefeli’s speech.
- WAGGGS regularly partners with UN agencies including UNFPA, UNICEF, and UNAIDS, three UN agencies known to also promote abortion, comprehensive sexuality education and sexual rights.
- In an attempt to dispel the serious concerns of GSUSA members regarding GSUSA’s activities and their participation with WAGGGS at this UN conference, GSUSA recently released a list of questions and answers. Click here to see GSUSA’s official Q and A with added commentary showing the misleading nature of many of GSUSA’s statements. This document can also be found at the end of this section.
Question: Why did GSUSA co-found, and why do they continue to maintain membership in, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), when WAGGGS aggressively promotes abortion and comprehensive sexuality education, trains girls to “talk about sex” and partners with pro-abortion organizations like International Planned Parenthood (IPPF) and the World YWCA?
Click here to see where the explicit and controversial “Healthy, Happy and Hot” booklet is prominently displayed on the website of WAGGGS partner, the World YWCA.
Question: When asked by their members if GSUSA has a financial relationship with pro-abortion WAGGGS, instead of clearly disclosing the millions they give to WAGGGS, why does GSUSA avoid full disclosure by saying that GSUSA is just one of 145 organizations paying dues to WAGGGS?
Click here to see GSUSA’s official Q and A with regard to their financial relationship with WAGGGS with added commentary showing the misleading nature of many of GSUSA’s statements. This document can also be found at the end of this section.
Question: Why doesn’t GSUSA clearly explain that they are pro-abortion WAGGGS largest member contributing millions annually?
Click here to see where GSUSA paid over $1,800,000 in dues to WAGGGS in just 2007 alone.
Question: Since GSUSA admits that when a Girl Scouts pays their $12 membership dues, this triggers a payment to WAGGGS from GSUSA, doesn’t this mean that by paying their annual dues a Girl Scout is supporting pro-abortion WAGGGS?
Click here to see an analysis done by Girl Scouts Why Not? documenting millions of dollars in “membership quota” fees that GSUSA has paid to pro-abortion WAGGGS.
Question: Why doesn’t GSUSA clarify when asked about their financial relationship with pro-abortion WAGGGS that in addition to the millions of dollars in membership fees GSUSA pays to WAGGGS, GSUSA also funds WAGGGS through their Juliette Low Fund, raises money for WAGGGS through their annual World Thinking Day program, and supports WAGGGS World Centres where girls are trained to become “global advocates?”
Click here to see supporting documentation.
Question: Are Girl Scout families aware that 42 percent of the funds they donate to GSUSA’s Juliette Low Fund are used for pro-abortion WAGGGS “capacity building?”
Question: Why are the Girl Scouts now denying in official statements that all members of Girl Scouts are also members of WAGGGS?
Click here to see where GSUSA’s scouting magazine clearly states that “Girl Scouts of the USA, and every member of it, automatically belongs to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS)?”
Click here to see an email dated March 2011 where GSUSA tells one of their members that all Girl Scouts are members of WAGGGS.
Click here to see page 40 from GSUSA's Your Voice Your World Journey book that states "As a Girl Scout, you're part of a global community—the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
Question: Why did GSUSA recently alter the wording on their website where it had stated for years that “all Girl Scouts” wear the trefoil pin and that “The World Trefoil Pin shows that you are part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS)?”
Click here to see a screen shot of GSUSA’s web page that stated until recently that all Girl Scouts are “part of” WAGGGS.
Click here to see where GSUSA recently changed their web page to now say that “Girls wear the World Trefoil Pin” only to show “their connection to the worldwide sisterhood of Girl Scouting and Girl Guiding.”
Question: Why is GSUSA is now telling Girl Scout parents who are concerned about WAGGGS promotion of abortion, that individual Girl Scouts are not members of WAGGGS, if GSUSA is still a member of WAGGGS and pay dues to WAGGGS based on the number of GSUSA’s dues-paying members?
Question: Why won’t GSUSA answer the emails sent to them by several Girl Scout parents asking them if WAGGGS receives money for the WAGGGS pins that Girl Scouts wear on their uniforms? (The WAGGGS pin comes in the Girl Scout uniform “basic starter kit” and since there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts, this could add up to a significant amount of money).
Question: If all members of GSUSA are not considered members of WAGGGS, then why doesn’t GSUSA tell WAGGGS to stop saying in their lobbying activities at the UN and elsewhere that WAGGGS represents 10 million girls, which number includes the 3.5 million Girl Scouts of the GSUSA?
Question: Are Girl Scout families aware that the Global Action Award promoted on GSUSA’s website, enables Girl Scouts to “join in WAGGGS’ international movement of 10 million girls who together are sowing the seeds of social change?”
Question: As part of WAGGGS’ campaign which encourages girls to “talk about sex,” did members of the WAGGGS delegation (including Girl Scouts) lead a discussion with girls at the UN regarding masturbation and sexual orientation as a young woman from Latin America reported?
Question: What steps have the Girl Scouts taken, if any, to ensure that the “global advocate” trainings held at GSUSA-supported “World Centres,” owned and managed by WAGGGS, are not used to train Girl Scouts to lobby at the UN to promote abortion, comprehensive sexuality education, or sexual rights?
Official Statements from Girl Scouts of the USA
with Commentary by Family Watch International
A number of Girl Scout families concerned about many of the issues addressed on our www.100QuestionsfortheGirlScouts.org website have contacted GSUSA asking them to explain their positions. Below is GSUSA’s most recent attempt to rebut accusations about its involvement in and support of controversial issues. Family Watch International’s commentary showing the misleading nature of many of their answers is highlighted in yellow below each answer.
Question: Did GSUSA distribute a Planned Parenthood brochure at a UN event?
GSUSA Official Answer: No, we did not. In 2010, GSUSA took part in the 54th Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations. Our participation in that conference was the subject of numerous internet stories and blogs that were factually inaccurate and troubling. Girl Scouts had no knowledge of the brochure in question and played no role in distributing it.
Comment:The fact is a stack of International Planned Parenthood’s graphic “Healthy, Happy and Hot”booklets were on a table in the back of the Girl Scouts’ UN meeting room as reported by Family Watch International president Sharon Slater.
Before finding this brochure Family Watch had no knowledge of the Girl Scouts’ numerous connections to Planned Parenthood and other controversial organizations and issues. The discovery of this brochure in the Girl Scouts’ meeting room was the impetus for Family Watch and a number of Girl Scouts and Girl Scout leaders to conduct the extensive research presented on www.100QuestionsfortheGirlScouts.org, which documents GSUSA’s numerous connections to Planned Parenthood and other controversial organizations, individuals and agendas.
Question: What is GSUSA's relationship with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts?
GSUSA Official Answer: The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is comprised of 145 member organizations which promote mutual understanding and cross-cultural opportunities for girls around the world. Girl Scouts of the USA is one of the 145 Member Organizations.
Each Member Organization creates its own programs and pursues advocacy efforts based on the needs and issues affecting girls in their individual countries. GSUSA does not always take the same positions or endorse the same programs as WAGGGS. GSUSA's relationship with WAGGGS is akin to the US relationship with the UN. The United States may not agree with every position the UN takes, but values having a seat at the table.
Comment: The analogy comparing GSUSA’s membership in the pro-abortion group, WAGGGS, to a country’s membership in the UN does not work and therefore makes this answer misleading on several levels.
First, while WAGGGS may have 145 member organizations, GSUSA members comprise almost one-third of pro-abortion WAGGGS total membership.
Second, most GSUSA members have no idea that because of their membership in GSUSA each Girl Scout is counted by WAGGGS as one of the 10 million girls supporting pro-abortion WAGGGS activities and statements. Citizens of UN member states are fully aware that their country is representing them at the UN.
After UN declarations, treaties, policies and programs are carefully negotiated by representatives of UN member states, these documents are publicly posted where citizens can see exactly what their government has supported. When GSUSA reports on what WAGGGS is promoting at the UN, they usually use vague descriptions like the girls are “helping to make the world a better place,” or they are making sure “girls are at the center of government priorities,” or girls are “making their voices heard.” And while WAGGGS does promote good things that most people would consider noncontroversial, GSUSA highlights those and does not disclose to their members the controversial things that WAGGGS also promotes on behalf of all their members.
Fourth, UN member states can disassociate themselves from statements made by the UN with which they disagree. Since members of GSUSA are not even aware that statements are being made by WAGGGS on their behalf, they do not have the opportunity to encourage GSUSA to publicly disassociate themselves from such statements. We know of no instance where GSUSA has publicly disassociated themselves from WAGGGS’ controversial positions or statements. When Girl Scout families have complained about WAGGGS’ positions they give vague responses like the one above to the effect that GSUSA does not agree with everything WAGGGS does.
Fifth, GSUSA does not only have “a seat at the table” with WAGGGS, they provide a disproportionate amount of WAGGGS’ funding, and therefore influence, compared to all of WAGGGS affiliates.
If GSUSA really does not agree with some of the major issues that WAGGGS promotes (like abortion and explicit sexuality education) why do they continue to provide substantial support and funding for WAGGGS?
Question: Does GSUSA have a financial relationship with WAGGGS?
GSUSA Official Answer: Every Girl Scout and Girl Guide organization is a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts -- and each Member Organization, including Girl Scouts of the USA, pays dues. WAGGGS operates in much the same way as the United Nations: each member organization pays dues based on the size of its membership and the per capita income of the country in which the organization resides.
Comment: When asked about the financial relationship with WAGGGS, why doesn't GSUSA clearly disclose that the dues they pay to WAGGGS amounts to millions of dollars and is more than all other WAGGGS members combined (more than half of all the membership dues WAGGGS receives) and that GSUSA has a number of other financial connections to WAGGGS?
Question: Are girls individual members of WAGGGS?
GSUSA Official Answer: No, individual girls are not members of WAGGGS. Girl Scouts of the USA is a member organization of WAGGGS.
Comment: This is probably the most misleading GSUSA answer of all. Until recently GSUSA openly acknowledged in several places on their website and other publications that all GSUSA members are also automatically members of WAGGGS.
When a group of concerned Girl Scout mothers began questioning GSUSA headquarters about this, at first GSUSA gave contradictory and confusing answers and then began to say that GSUSA members are not members of WAGGGS.
It would seem that GSUSA only changed the wording on their materials because a number of Girl Scouting families were leaving the Girl Scouts upon learning that by being a Girl Scout they were part of the controversial, pro-abortion WAGGGS.
It is really quite simple. If Girl Scouts are members of GSUSA and GSUSA is a member of WAGGGS then (as Girl Scout materials have always said until recently) Girl Scouts are also members of WAGGGS.
Question: Do girls have to wear a WAGGGS pin?
GSUSA Official Answer: Girls wear the WAGGGS pin to represent their connection to the worldwide sisterhood of Girl Scouting and Girl Guiding. For a girl to be in uniform, the only requirement is that she wears her Girl Scout pin.
Comment:Just recently GSUSA changed the wording on their website, which used to say that all Girl Scouts wear the WAGGGS pin and by doing so it shows they are part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). While the wording in material has recently been changed possibly to avoid offending parents, the relationship with pro-abortion WAGGGS remains the same.
Question: What is GSUSA's position regarding human sexuality, birth control, abortion?
GSUSA Official Answer: Girl Scouts of the USA does not take a position or develop materials on these issues. We feel our role is to help girls develop self-confidence and good decision-making skills that will help them make wise choices in all areas of their lives.
Parents or guardians make all decisions regarding program participation that may be of a sensitive nature. Consistent with that belief, GSUSA directs councils, including volunteer leaders, to get written parental permission for any locally planned program that could be considered sensitive.
Comment:See Girl Scouts and Abortion, Girl Scouts and Pro-Abortion WAGGGS, and Girl Scouts and Sexuality on www.100QuestionsfortheGirlScouts.org for a wealth of documentation showing how misleading this statement is.
Question: Does GSUSA have a relationship with Planned Parenthood?
GSUSA Official Answer: No, Girl Scouts of the USA does not have a relationship or partnership with Planned Parenthood.
Comment:See Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood and Girl Scouts and International Planned Parenthoodto see how misleading this statement is.
Question: Does Girl Scouting support families of faith?
GSUSA Official Answer: Yes. Girl Scouting supports girls from all backgrounds and beliefs. While we are a secular organization that refrains from teaching religious or spiritual beliefs or practices, we believe that the motivating force in Girl Scouting is a spiritual one, and we greatly value our longstanding partnerships with religious organizations across many faiths that share the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
We encourage girls to develop connections to their own spiritual and religious beliefs by earning recognitions provided by their faith communities and by earning the new My Promise, My Faith pin, which helps a girl deepen the connection between the Girl Scout Law and her faith. We support the right of faith leaders to verify that program delivered to girls in their places of worship is consistent with their faith's teachings.
Comment: While it is true that GSUSA does support girls in earning recognition provided by their faith communities, it is in GSUSA’s best interest to do so, since GSUSA receives much of their financial support from faith communities. Unfortunately, most members of these same faith communities that pay dues to, raise funds for, and sell cookies for the Girl Scouts are unaware of how Girl Scout funds are being used to undermine many of the values their faiths espouse and how Girl Scout materials are increasingly referring girls to organizations or encouraging them to admire individuals that are working to undermine many of their values.
