Conversion “therapy”
 

There is no scientific basis supporting conversion therapy. It is mentally damaging to youth to try and change the way they were born rather than accept who they are. Suicide rates among LGBT youth are already far too high. Conversion therapy is more likely to contribute to suicidal thoughts than prevent them. Let us, as a society, love and value the children we have, not bully them.
