Conversion Therapy is harmful- sexuality is not something to change
 

Some of the comments that conversion therapy allows for individuals to change their sexuality if they want to concerns me.  Sexuality is innate and is not changed- trying to change implies there is something wrong with sexuality and that is not accurate.  The harm that can occur as a result does not uphold the ethical duties of beneficence and nonmaleficence.
