Please ban conversion therapy: dangerous and harmful to children

Conversion therapy is incredibly harmful to LGBTQ youth. It can lead to self-hatred, depression, and suicide. Being gay isn’t a choice. You can’t “cure” being gay. But you can hurt a gay child by telling them this lie and forcing them into therapy that teaches that being gay is wrong. Make conversion therapy illegal. Help protect children and prevent suicide.
