Please do not ban conversion therapy

Banning conversion therapy will cause cause serious harm to our state and communities.

No individual should be forced into an action they do not wish to carry out. This goes both ways - yes someone should not be forced or coerced into conversion therapy or any kind of therapy, but also conversion therapy should not be banned. This would deny an individual who may be seeking this type of therapy with their own free will their right to receive it. 

Please do not move forward with this legislation.
