The Girl Scouts: A “Groundbreaking” Feminist Moment

Are the Girl Scouts neutral on abortion? Hardly. They recently sponsored a live screening and panel discussion of the feminist documentary, MAKERS, which presents abortion as essential to women’s autonomy. Headliners for the event included Amy Richards, whose “groundbreaking” MAKERS video describes her decision to “get rid of” two of her three triplets through selective reduction. Welcome to the new Girl Scouts.

After all, GSUSA stakes its relationship with families and churches on the credibility of its promise to ‘take no position’ on sexuality and abortion.
