Please protect Virginia's kids from harmful "therapy"

I urge you to use your powers to protect kids from the abusive scam that is conversion therapy. Every reputable medical organization has found that these so-called "treatments" are ineffective and harmful. With high rates of depression and suicide already a major problem for LGBTQ kids, the last thing they need is scientifically bogus treatment that has no effect other than to make them feel worse about who they are.  It is 2019.  Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have already taken this obvious step.  It's high time Virginia catch up.
