I support the ban on coversion therapy

The practice of conversion therapy is morally unacceptable. In some places it allows parents and guardians to place minors into programs meant to 'cure', and 'treat' homosexuality as though it is a mental condition and not a trait. It traumatizes and damages some or many who are placed through it. It is based on baseless, unfounded claims that certain practices or regiments can "cure" homosexuality without any scientific evidence or medical support for doing so. Anything less than the total abolition of this repugnant and reprehensible practice would be an abject dismissal of our moral obligations to care for and love our fellow citizens, neighbors, and countrymen.
