American Girl, manufacturer of a highly popular line of dolls and children's books, has inserted itself into a national controversy by funding a youth organization that supports abortion and homosexuality.
Eric, in a post on prolifeblogs.com, writes,
I want to encourage everyone to keep up the pressure on the American Girl doll company to sever their ties with the anti-family group Girls Inc. With the Christmas shopping season on the horizon, a large outcry over their link to abortion, birth control and lesbianism may bring results.The Pro-Life Action League describes what concerned citizens can do:
The League is urging 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. Letters, phone calls and e-mails should be directed to:WriteWingBlog published a response from the company before concluding, "Don't let this company pull the wool over your eyes. Demand that they stop ALL fuding of this dangerous organization, or they will find themselves in the midst of a wide-spread boycott."Ellen L. Brothers, PresidentScheidler and the League hope 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.
