Please ban this cruel, inhumane conversion therapy!

Please ban this cruel non-therapy. It is brainwashing, not therapy. It is particularly wrong to allow minors to be submitted to this therapy as they are trying to figure out their identity. This inhumane therapy statistically has led many youth to attempt or commit suicide. It is s shame-based therapy that inherently says—you are not good if you live the way you were born. 

People promoting this horrific conversion therapy are right-wing, religious idealogues. They are trying to push their religious agenda on Virginians. Therapy is no place to push a religious agenda.
