UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) A pro-life group is urging its supporters not to buy Girl Scout cookies. Pro-Life Wisconsin says the national Girl Scout organization has a partnership with Planned Parenthood. However, Girl Scout officials in Wisconsin say none of the cookie money goes to the national group. A scouting spokeswoman in the Madison area tells the Wisconsin State Journal that all cookie revenues stay with the troops which sell them, and their regional councils.
The national Girl Scouts have posted an explanation on their Web site. It says the group quote, "does not advocate one way or another with regard to what we perceive as private issues handled best by families."
