Randy Finder is interested in information on handling of pregnant Scouts
(and, by extension, Guides).
We have had a pregnant Explorer in our Post. There's really no story to
tell. For a while she wore a larger uniform blouse, then she had a baby boy.
The only restrictions that were placed on her activity were those determined
by the medical community.
As to marital status, that is not - as I recall - a question asked on the
youth registration form. Therefore it is irrelevant.
If you go beyond those thoughts, you may be seen as discriminatory.
