Speech is prohibited by law if harmful

Speech is prohibited by law. You cannot yell "Fire" in a crowded movie theater. Speech, if harmful, like conversion therapy, can be prohibited. This is not a issue of free speech, it is part of our oath to "do no harm." There are enough "counselors" who are not licensed causing harm in Virginia, the Board should do nothing to support those who are licensed from also doing harm.
