Conversion Therapy is a right


BOARD OF COUNSELING DO NOT BAN licensed professionals from providing reparative or “conversion” therapy to children.

Parents and children need the opportunity to personally choose the best medical assistance for their child's needs. Children need someone to talk to who can help them make healthy decisions.  Tying the hands of the therapists and limitiing their tools to help children talk through their concerns is ridiculous. The professionals and parents should have the utmost concern for the health of the child and not be trying to push a political agenda or the latest cultural trend.
