Sexual conversion therapy is an abhorrent and abusive practice

Sexual conversion therapy is a abusive practice that should not be permitted in the Commonwealth, and any medical professional who performs such "therapy" should be subject to discliplinary action by the Virginia Board of Psychology if not have their license revoked. To force a child, or anyone, against their will to change their sex is medically unnecessary and factually ineffective at what it purports to achieve. Being gay, lesbian or transexual is not a choice and those who would attempt to "fix" a child's gender through converstion therapy are only creating physical and mental trauma.
