Pro-Life Group Calls for Girl Scouts Cookie Boycott Based On False Claims
In December 2013, the Girl Scouts of the USA tweeted a link to a Huffington Post article about ladies who should be “women of the year, which included Beyonce, Malala Yousafzai and Texas State. Sen. Wendy Davis (D).
The boycott was started by John Pisciotta, head of a very small pro-life group in Waco, Texas.
“The Girl Scouts were once a truly amazing organization, but it has been taken over by ideologues of the left, and regular folks just will not stand for it," Pisciotta told BreitBart.com. "Anyone who cares about this ought to go to CookieCott.com and find out why.”
CookieCott.com makes the false claim that "the Girl Scouts recently endorsed pro-abortion politicians Wendy Davis and Kathleen Sebelius as worthy role models for our children."
However, in reality, the Girl Scouts have not endorsed Davis or Sebelius and do not take a position on abortion, notes The Washington Post.
Davis, who is running for governor in Texas, made headlines last year when she filibustered a state bill (for 17 hours) that would not allow victims of rape or incest victims to have an abortion after 20 weeks.
