I find it completely misguided that our state government is trying to regulate the restriction of a therapy based on only one segment of our state society. The fact that this concept has been debated and failed multiple years in the state legislature, but is now brought up from a regulatory process is indicative that there is not broad public support and that one segment appears to be trying to use government to force their desired outcome. Why is there a need to "ban" this form of therapy other than to appease people who find it "offensive"? In Virginia, parents/guardians have the prime responsibility for the development of their children up to the age of majority. Regulating away the ability for parents to exercise that responsibility would contradict state law. In essence you would be creating a regulation contrary to a state law that would undoubtedly fail when contested in court. So why push for something that is a) illegal and b) bound to fail?
