Abortion activist Wendy Davis considered by Girl Scouts as ‘Woman of the Year’ for 2013

A marathon filibuster to speak about against the Texas abortion bill put Wendy Davis into the national spotlight and garnered the attention and respect of the Girl Scouts.

Wendy Davis filibuster Texas abortion billOn December 18, 2013, Girl Scouts USA tweeted: “Incredible Ladies Who Should Be Women of the Year for 2013” and asking if anyone should be added to the list.

Is there anyone you’d add to this list? Incredible Ladies Who Should Be Women Of The Year For 2013 http://t.co/r6MAzSH0ZK via @HuffPostWomen — Girl Scouts (@girlscouts) December 18, 2013

The link goes to a column by the Huffington Post, which promotes Davis and pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem as potential women of the year.

Christy Volanski, a mother of two former Girl Scouts who created the website Speak Now Girl Scouts to expose the link between the group and the Planned Parenthood abortion business, explains the Girl Scouts have long ties to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

“As a concerned pro-lifer who supported the Girl Scout organization for many years, as a girl member and as a troop leader, it saddens me to share the fall of this once venerable organization that to this day retains the support of so many wonderful women and girls, many of whom are unaware of what they are actually supporting. But families deserve to know the truth,” she said. “There are a lot of accusations in the blogosphere about the Girl Scouts. Some are fact, like the Girl Scout organization works alongside abortion providers and funds/promotes abortion rights advocacy groups.”
