Stop Conversion Therapy
Conversion therapy is torture of children & has been declared unconstitutional many times by SCOTUS.It does severe psychological harm that stays with children thru' adulthood.We condem other countries for brutality to children, yet we allow it in the name of religion. I do not remember Jesus saying it was okay. No adult, no elected official, no parent should ever condone this child abuse. Many states have already outlawed CT. VA should also. So called religous groups make hundreds of thousands of dollars by committing kids to these CT Camps. That is why they do it.But they are damaging physically & emotionally children.Protect them. Protect their future psychological health.
