Thank you, corporate America

American Girl teams with pro-abortion, pro-lesbian group

It’s not bad enough that you sell for the sake of profit only, now you want to encourage young girls to become lesbians through politically correct sophistry. It's become a constant battle every day by parents to keep the wolves at their doors at bay to protect their offspring from the corruption of liberalism.

Family advocates are warning parents that the popular American Girl doll maker, owned by Mattel, is partnering with a group that supports abortion and lesbianism.

In August, American Girl launched the "I Can" campaign with Girls Inc., urging girls to take a pledge and purchase a special bracelet.

With every purchase of the "I Can" band, 70 cents is given to Girls Inc. in addition to American Girl's contribution of $50,000.

"Parents need to know that this effort to promote self-esteem among girls is not as innocent as it seems," said Ann Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League. "While Girls Inc. has some good programs, they also support abortion, oppose abstinence-only education for girls and condone lesbianism."

The American Family Association also has initiated a campaign to warn parents.

On its website, Girls Inc. says it supports a girl's right to abort an unwanted baby and promotion of contraceptives for girls.

The group also offers resources encouraging lesbian and bisexual lifestyles.

One publications states, "The emergence of a lesbian identity is an ongoing process, rather than an event."

"Parents associate American Girl dolls with wholesome American family values, yet Girls Inc. contradicts parents' most basic moral beliefs," Scheidler said. "We're encouraging parents, grandparents and other family members to write and call American Girl President Ellen L. Brothers to object to the company's support for Girls Inc."

Scheidler said she hopes American Girl will sever ties with Girls Inc. before the League calls for a boycott of American Girl products and launches a picketing campaign at the American Girl Place retail stores in Chicago and New York.
