Ban the unethical practice of conversion therapy

I am writing to fervently urge the banning of conversion therapy. Mental health and medical associations around the country have already denounced the practice, noting that is not a credible practice, and being lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender is not a mental illness that needs to be cured. Banning the practice of conversion therapy sends a strong message, and protects LGBT+ people from dangerous practices that could cause great harm. Thank you.
