Conversion therapy is harmful and does not work
 
This "therapy" harms people and can lead to life-long damage. Conversion "therapy" must be banned for the well-being of those who do not have a choice or voice. Many who are forced to undergo these "sessions" are children who have parents that cannot accept the fact that they have a child who is not straight. Conversion "therapy" should be banned to protect minors and those who do not have a choice. It does not work,it causes damage, and has no worth.
