Do not restrict freedom

Please do not to punish licensed counselors for helping patients overcome their unwanted sexual feelings. Our country was founded on freedom, and that includes allowing parents, children, and counselors to have a choice in therapy. As with other kinds of speech, regulating the content of professionals’ speech poses the inherent risk that seeks not to advance a legitimate regulatory goal, but to suppress unpopular ideas or information.
