|Rep. Bob D. Morris|
Once confronted by local media including WRTV's Chris Proffitt, Morris refused to back off his claims inviting people to do their own research to see if what he put in the letter "intended for his colleagues" was true.
Morris, first elected in 2010, wrote in his letter to his colleagues that he believed the Girl Scouts had "entered a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood" based upon his own web research. He cites what he calls, "abundant evidence" that Planned Parenthood has an agenda that includes "sexualizing young girls through the Scouts, which is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood."
I've done some internet research of my own, and many of Morris' claims are refuted. Is there some connection between the Scouts and Planned Parenthood? Yes, there is evidence to support that, but, for Morris to describe the group as an arm of Planned Parenthood is just not supported.
Thus, I'm left with my only response...
