Please Ban Conversion Therapy
I was excited to learn that the board is considering banning the practice of conversion therapy for licensed providers. It is absolutely shocking that providers remain committed to harming patients based on their religious beliefs - not to mention religious lobbying for the practice to remain promoted. Our patients continue to commit suicide and have lifelong problems because of these practices that are now proven to be harmful. At what point did we say we practice based on our religious beliefs over our scientific bases? This must stop. I urge the board to move forward in banning providers to offer this service.
