Ban conversion therapy
Conversion therapy is outdated and based on the false premise that being LGBTQIA is a mental illness. The mental health field has stated clearly that being LGBTQIA is not a mental illness and does not require "treatment" as such. Conversion therapy has been shown to be damaging to those who participate-- or are forced to participate. Ban this unscientific, unnecessary practice in Virginia.
