Parents, Beware — The Left Has Undone A Century Of Tradition In These Organizations For Children

For over a century, two organizations have given support to parents who wanted their children to learn life skills, build friendships, and respect traditional American values and the family.

As traditional values and religious liberties have increasingly come under attack by the left, schools and youth organizations have bent to the will of the liberal agenda.

And every parent should now reconsider their children’s participation in two organizations which previously were a rite of passage for the youth of America — the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America.

The values these organizations used to promote are now being eliminated altogether from their core mission in the name of “inclusivity.”

The Girl Scouts of America has always been promoted as a place where girls and young women could gain confidence and understanding from their peers, and for the better part of the last century, would learn life skills such as cooking and sewing.

Now the feminist agenda has taken over the Girl Scouts, teaching sexual education and contraception, promoting abortion, and denouncing traditional women’s roles.

LifeSite News reports:

Rochelle Focaracci, co-editor of Girl Scouts: Why Not, explained how Girl Scouts USA belongs to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and pays an annual membership fee of $1.8 million. 

“WAGGGS advocates for contraception and ‘abortion rights’ on behalf of its girl members,” she said. WAGGGS, she pointed out, openly partners with the International Planned Parenthood Federation. 

WAGGGS is also closely tied to the UN Population Fund and its agenda, which includes graphic sexual education for children from the earliest ages, free access to contraceptives and abortion for minors, and protection of “right to privacy” so youth can hide their sexual activity, pregnancies, and abortions from parents.

 “Here’s the money trail,” she said. “It’s here [in the income tax return], every year.”

Focaracci also noted how Girl Scouts partners with The Coalition of Adolescent Girls, an organization that has direct ties to the UK abortion provider Marie Stopes International. 

“Marie Stopes actually provides abortion,” she said. “Their little slogan is ‘Children by choice, not by chance.’

And the Boy Scouts of America, once hailed as an organization to guide boys to become strong male leaders and heads of their families, has recently decided participants no longer even have to be boys.

In 2013, the Boy Scouts reversed a century-old ban on accepting homosexual youth, and in 2015, began allowing gay men as Scout leaders.

And to take it one step further, they recently stated they would allow transgendered youth into their ranks to conform to the liberal trend that “gender is not biology.”

In another victory for the left, the Boy Scouts released a statement that completely undermines the foundation the organization was built on a century ago.

The Blaze reports:

“For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and other youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to the information on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs. However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and these laws vary widely from state to state.”

These organizations that have “Girl” and “Boy” in their names are no longer promoting any of the values they were founded on, and in which parents could be proud to have their children belong to.

Their aim is now to teach children that filling the traditional roles of men and women are to be avoided at all costs.

And they have allowed the left an open door to the eventual demise of both organizations, as the separation of genders and celebration of their traditional roles are coming to an end.
