I support the guidance document to ban the practice of conversion therapy.
While I respect a family's right to raise their children as they believe is best, we already put limits on what a family may do if their choices put a child in harm's way. Conversion therapy has no scientific validity and children should not be exposed to this process based upon a parent's beliefs, however sincerely held. The State already does not allow parents to withhold life saving medical care from a child just because it violates their religious beliefs. Allowing parents to subject their children to conversion therapy is harmful and ineffective.
