Reparative Therapy; no ban
 

  No to banning any counseling or therapy, for anyone. Children are the responsibility of their parents/guardians. Being able to care for their physical, mental, emotional and spirtual wellbeing, as they see best, is paramount. No state should punish a licensed counselor from providing care nor should any legislation remove an option for talk therapy, for an adolescent.  Let us remember that an adolescent's rational part of the brain is not fully developed.
