Regional Girl Scout spokeswoman Christy Gibbs said that cookie revenue goes directly to the troops and stays within the regional council, and it does not go to the national organization.
“It supports a Girl Scout, a girl who is setting a goal to pay her way to camp this summer,” Gibbs said. “It supports a Girl Scout troop setting goals for what they want to do.”
Gibbs said the Badgerland Girl Scout Council does not take a position on issues of abortion, birth control or human sexuality.
“They have held up groups, individuals and resources that are pro-abortion in nature, that are advocating so called full range of reproductive right,” State Director for Pro-Life Wisconsin Peggy Hamill said. “Red flags have gone up with the Girl Scouts for as long as I can remember, I would say at least 20 to 25 years.”
Hamill said they hope the boycott will not traumatize the girls but will make the world a better place.
The cookies go on sale Saturday.
