The Mothers Behind The Girl Scout Cookie Boycott

Girl scout cookies boycottThe new gluten-free shortbread cookies should have been the most controversial part of the 2014 Girl Scout cookie campaign.

Instead, pro-life groups across the country have banded together to launch CookieCott 2014, a boycott of Thin Mints, Tagalongs and other tasty pastries because the Girl Scout’s national leadership “continues to show its attachment to pro-abortion leaders and organizations.”

What began as a local effort through Pro-Life Waco has rallied anti-abortion groups across the country, including Pro-Life Wisconsin. But how exactly did the Girl Scouts, a group that actively states it “does not take a position” on birth control or abortion, manage to enrage pro-lifers?

It all apparently comes down to a tweet and a Facebook post. At the end of last year, the Girl Scouts’ official Twitter account tweeted a Huffington Post article on “Incredible Ladies of 2013.” In addition to featuring Beyonce and Malala Yousafzai, the list gave a nod to Wendy Davis. Then, on Dec. 30, the Girl Scouts posted on their Facebook page a link to a Washington Post article called “Seven Women Who Made a Difference in 2013,” which included Secretary of Health Kathleen Sebelius.
