Fmr. spokeswoman for pro-abortion foundation now works for…the Girl Scouts

The woman who now handles the Girl Scouts’ communications used to have another employer: an abortion lobby think tank founded by Gloria Steinem.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Kelly Parisi has served as vice president of communications at the Girl Scouts of the USA since last July. But her last job, before her two-month gap in employment, was as vice president of marketing and communications for the Ms. Foundation for Women. The foundation – which Steinem founded in 1973 – lists “Reproductive Rights and Health” (which includes support for taxpayer-funded abortion) first on its list of issues.

Parisi, who has a minor in women’s studies, said she was thrilled to work at the foundation, because she was “able to channel my outrage at women’s inequality and gender injustice into action every day.”

“The last two years have generated record numbers of restrictions on reproductive rights across the country,” she said. “Women are constantly under attack.”

At the Ms. Foundation, Parisi served on a five-member “executive team” that guided policy. A report she contributed to last year called for the “repeal [of] state and federal legislative barriers to abortion access,” granting military women access to abortion, implementing the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), expanding “family planning” funding, and teaching “comprehensive” sex education in the public schools.
