Girl Scouts emblemA Christian-based organization for girls is urging that parents exercise caution regarding a sex education program that provides a controversial approach to the subject.

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington is providing a puberty workshop from January to May next year.

The Wright Conversations organization, which has been honored by Planned Parenthood, will be instructing girls ages nine and up on intimate matters and in a very explicit manner.

Patti Garibay, who heads American Heritage Girls, told OneNewsNow that girls need to understand more than the mechanics of their sexuality.

“So when I see programs that are called information-based sexuality programs," she says," it just raises a red flag because what that typically means is they will be devoid of any morality or any faith tradition around those very important topics of sexuality that really should be discussed – in my view – with the parents and the church." 

The pro-family advocate also noted that the program offered by Wright Conversations group goes to an extreme, since there are reference materials suggested by Wright that young scouts have access to when registering.

"That is very scary and I find it rather reckless,” Garibay warns.

American Heritage Girls says it provides resources to better equip parents and churches to address the sensitive issue of human sexulity with a biblically based moral perspective.


This story has been updated to reflect the correct beginning age for participating Girl Scouts in the workshop. It is age nine, not age six.
