My vote, if I had one, would be a resounding and emphatic "NO".
This is a topic that is too emotionally charged and loaded up with all sorts
of political agendas in the US. The BSA should not get involved in it. It
would only be trouble.
I believe the correct and proper choice has been made by leaving this topic
to the parents and religious leaders.
