LGBTQ Youth Need to be Protected from Conversion "Therapy"

Thankfully, I have supportive parents, so I have no direct experience with conversion therapy. Not everyone is that lucky. Being told by a physician, someone who you are supposed to be able to trust, tell you time and again that you are broken, that there is something wrong with you when there isn't, is inhumane. This practice dramatically increases the likelihood that a child will attempt suicide. Freedom of Religion does not mean that one has the freedom to torture children.
