Prohibit licensed providers from attempts to change SO or GI of minors; ensure penalties deter this.

Please prohibit licensed health providers in Virginia (regardless of what kind of degree allows them to provide "counseling") from attempting to change the sexual orientation and/or gender identity of minors in Virginia, and ensure that that the penalties for attempting to do this will act as a strong deterrent.

No sexual orientation or gender identity is, in itself, a mental illness. Thank you.
