Please produce evidence based articles pro or con on the issue of conversion therapy

Based on my experiences as a teacher and parent  I would have to say that this issue should not be addressed by legislative mandates. This is giving in to religious convictions regarding  personal and private convictions regarding complicated decisions about human sexuality and should be up to the individual. "Don't ask, don't tell" seemed to work quite well. Keep the government away from our constititional freedoms.
