Ban conversion"therapy"

Please ban the practice of "conversion therapy" in Virginia.  It is cruel, dehumanizing, and it doesn't work.  I know this as the former wife of a gay man, and from conversations with other spouses of gay and lesbian people.  I even recall a conversation I had with the wife of a man who was the director of a conversion therapy peogram in Virginia, a gay man himself.  She confessed to me that gay people do not experience real "conversion" from the "therapy;"  It is a constant daily struggle, she said. It doesn't work!  Ban it!
