Protect our LGBTQ Youth From Abuse
 
Please ban conversion therapy. It is a dangerous, unscientific practice that can lead to severe self esteem issues at best, or suicide at worst. I personally know people who have been subjected to this therapy, and it was a horrible experience for both of them. Both of them were, are, and forever will be LGBTQ. It is who they are in their cores, and to counsel them otherwise constitutes mental abuse.
