American Girl Dolls, Mattel Support Abortion

It would appear that American Girl doll company and their manufacturer, Mattel, have teamed up with a strong pro-abortion activist group called Girls Incorporated. Under the partnership, Mattel will be selling a bracelet that says "I Can" and remitting a large portion of the proceeds to Girls Incorporated. Further, American Girl will be making a separate contribution of $50,000 directly to Girls Inc. over and above the per bracelet contribution.

The following is a snippet from the Girls Inc. website.

"Girls Inc. firmly believes that girls have the right
to...reproductive healthcare..."

Here is another statement from Girls Inc.

"Reproductive Freedom

Girls Incorporated affirms that girls and young women should make responsible decisions about sexuality, pregnancy and parenthood.

We recognize the right of all women to choose whether, when, and under what
circumstances to bear children. Reproductive freedom and responsibility are
essential to other rights and opportunities, including pursuit of education, employment, financial security and a stable and fulfilling family life. Restrictions of reproductive choice are especially burdensome for young women and poor women. Girls Incorporated supports a woman’s freedom of choice, a constitutional right established by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 in Roe vs. Wade.'"

Girls Inc. is very forthcoming about its pro-abortion stance. Therefore, Mattel and American Girl cannot plead ignorance when it comes to their alliance with the pro-abortion group.

You may feel compelled to check labels more closely when making purchasing decisions in the future.
