Protect health care access, freedom of speech, and religious libery; reject this ban

I'm not in principle against banning specific treatments which are clearly harmful.  However, the proposal bans any therapy being directed to reduce or mitigate unwanted same-sex attraction.  That is an extremely broad and encroaches on first ammendment rights.  Persons who seek help for unwanted same-sex attraction should not be denied it, desipite its controversial nature.
