Ban conversion therapy

Homosexuality was removed from the DSM as a mental illness in the 1970’s, why would it still be legal to practice therapy that ignores this fact? Conversion therapy has long and short term negative  effects on participants overall feelings of self-worth, is ineffective in its purposes purpose and increases the likelihood of suicidial ideation. Ban this harmful practice now!
