Pro-life group takes stance on Girl Scout cookies

The leader of Pro-Life Wisconsin is asking supporters not to buy Girl Scout cookies this year.

Peggy Hamill is the group's director. She says she was a scout when she was young, and even led her own troop, as an adult. Hamill says local Girl Scout troops do a lot of good, but she's concerned about the national organization's support for pro-choice groups, like Planned Parenthood.

Hamill says only a small portion of the Girl Scout cookie money stays with the local troops, and the vast majority goes to the national organization.
