Gay conversion therapy
 

Gay conversion therapy harms its patients for something that doesn't need to be "cured". The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, American Academy of Pediatrics, and many more health organizations and profesional groups have found no evidence that gay conversion therapy has any benefits and instead actually harms its patients.

Two of my best friends are gay, and I'm thankful their parents never forced them to undergo the painful ordeal of gay conversion therapy. Please don't let gay conversion therapy continue.
