Conversion Therapy is Abuse!

Conversion therapy has no scientific or medical backing and is detremental to the mental health an stability of a person.

Forcing children (or even adults) in to this horrific practice is cruel and abusive.  Not only does it not work, it increases rates of depression, anxiety, and suicidality.

Victims forced to enter a conversion program should be able to sue their abusers for damages.

Please review the research which can be found through these websites:
