The NCSF response to the Scout Associations FS950000 Promoting Good Sexual Health Within Scouting - by Fr Jonathan How
Statement from Bishop Moth regarding My Body, My Choice
“The Scout Association has published the resources My Body, My Choice in response to requests from members. The recognition given in the document to the place of abstinence in combating the problems of STIs and teenage pregnancy is welcomed. We also appreciate that Scouting recognises the importance of the religious beliefs of young people and the wishes of their parents regarding the formation being offered.
The Scout Association, along with the publication of My Body, My Choice, is also making available a teaching document, Cherishing Human Sexuality which sets out Catholic teaching in this area, and draws on the Bishop’s Conference document Cherishing Life. Cherishing Human Sexuality will further an appreciation of the Gospel of life, which is at the heart of the Church’s understanding of human relationships.”
