Ban Conversion Therapy
How disheartening to learn about this misguided Catholic church "initiative". Yet how heartening to see the hundreds of respondents who call out this so-called "therapy" (with originis that date back to 1890) for what it is. U.S. News and World Report states that conversion therapy has been denounced by the American Psychiatric Association and has been debunked by researchers. In recognition of "all God's children", it is time for Virginia to be added to this growing momentum of 16 states as of April 2019 that have banned this practive-- including the most heavily Catholic population states of New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Illinois, California, New Mexcio, and Massachusetts.
