Pro-life girls to picket American Girl Place in New York

.- Adolescent girls and their parents will picket Saturday at American Girl Place on Fifth Avenue in New York City in protest of the company’s ties to the pro-abortion advocacy group, Girls Incorporated.

The girls will hold "Girls for Life" signs, along with their Samantha, Kit, Molly and other American Girl dolls, each holding her own miniature picket sign.

The Pro-Life Action League will lead the demonstration, from 10 a.m. to noon, and is hoping to reach thousands of shoppers during this busy Christmas-shopping period.

In August, American Girl launched the "I Can" bracelet program, pledging to support Girls Inc. with 70¢ for every $1 bracelet sold, plus a $50,000 donation. Girls Inc. supports abortion and lesbianism, and opposes abstinence-only sex education programs.

In October, the Pro-Life Action League alerted parents about the "I Can" project and urged them to contact American Girl to express their objections. When American Girl refused to break its ties with Girls Inc. by Nov. 1, the league called for a boycott through the Christmas shopping season.

About 1,800 babies are aborted each day in the United States.
