After making controversial decisions over the past few years, the Boy Scouts of America is now facing bankruptcy and a massive decline in membership.
The organization has “hired law firm Sidley Austin for assistance in a possible chapter 11 bankruptcy filing,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Daily Caller reported that at its peak, the organization had a membership of approximately 4 million. Now that number has dropped to an estimated 2.3 million. The controversy the organization has faced in recent years and legal costs for sexual abuse lawsuits are both believed to be factors in the decline.
The trouble may have begun in 2013 when the organization decided to allow openly gay boys to join the ranks. From there, the changes continued to bring outrage across America.
In 2015, the Boy Scouts of America lifted the ban on openly gay scout leaders. In 2017, the changes continued and transgender boys were allowed to be members.

Girls were allowed in the program in 2018 — despite the fact that they have their own Girl Scouts program. The new program was given the “gender-neutral name” of Scouts BSA.
