Conversion Therapy is Not Healthy
 

Conversion therapy is NOT healthy for teens or even adults. No one should be forced into "therapy" that does nothing but shame the recipient, and in some cases, tortures them physically as well.

How can anyone believe that you can change who someone is, who they were born to be, by forcing someone else's beliefs on them? It's very ugly. It makes those who believe in this crock look really bad.

And let me state this for all the "religious freedom" criers out there. Just because we are trying to make it impossible for your "religion" to torture teens does NOT mean your religious freedom is being taken away. You do NOT have the right to torture and shame these people. You do not.
