Oppose the Ban on Reparative Therapy

It would be a grave mistake for the government to interfere with parents' right and ability to select appropriate therapy for their children, as this bill would do.  Parents are closest to their children and best know their children's needs, suffering, and wishes.  Such a bill sets a dangerous precedent, interposing government authority to usurp parental authority in a matter integral to a child's well-being.  The danger in such a precedent is manifest.  Please oppose this ill-considered bill.
