Ban conversion therapy

Conversion therapy is wrong and harmful. There is no evidence that it is effective and has been found to be incredibly harmful. There is no legitimate medical or psychiatric organization/association that promotes conversion therapy and all have vocally come out in recommending banning it. Conversion therapy goes against best medical practices and is not a legitimate therapeutic exercise. If conversion therapy is not banned then it is just state sponsored torture of lgbt youth.
