Ban conversion therapy

I write as a licensed clinical psychologist and a professor of education at the University of Virginia. Conversion therapy is an abhorrent, unscientific practice based on a misunderstanding of sexuality that is demeaning to human dignity.  The mental health profession must strive to educate members of the public who mistakenly believe that sexual orientation is a matter of moral choice.
