Conversion "therapy" has been shown to lead to depression, substance abuse, and suicide
 

These discredited practices take children and actively tear down their self esteem, alienate them from their peers, and in some cases even physically harm them.  This has been shown to cause severe mental health issues throughout the rest of the childs life, sometimes leading to suicide.  Don't allow this abusive practice to continue
