Parents must have the right to make decisions regarding the care of their children

It would be irresponsible to deny parents the right to make decisions regarding the health of their children. Parents are best suited to address concerns related to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of their children. While some individuals with same-sex attraction do not wish to change their sexual orientation, there are plenty of others who wish to seek counseling to live a chaste life or to help their sexual orientation conform to their biological sex. Please do not ban conversion therapy.
