Conversion therapy is unscientific con artistry
 
Conversion therapy is nothing more than a method for people with specific religious beliefs to express their distaste for LGBTQ people and attempt to shame and bully them into the closet. There is no evidence that conversion therapy is effective; in fact, conversion therapy has been shown to be first and foremost, harmful to the subject. Virginia should ban the practice has Viola 2 of any clinician's Hippocratic oath, and as an impermissible masquerading of religious proselytization as state-regulated therapy.
