Proposed Ban on Conversion Therapy
We respectfully oppose the proposed ban on conversion therapy. Adolescents who are sexually confused (and their parents) have the right to seek help from faith-based counselors who can listen to them with sympathy and assure them that such confusion is natural. Also, the proposed ban could prevent any faith-based counseling, which would be a violation of the First Amendment. Finally, such a far-reaching step should only be taken after full consideration by the legislature, not by an administrative agency.
