Please do not deny individuals the religious freedom to seek counseling aligned with their faith
 

Type over this text anParents are closest to their children’s challenges and they are in the best position to identify solutions and to make healthcare decisions involving the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being of their children. Under Virginia law, parents have the fundamental right to make decisions regarding the upbringing, education and care of their children. Some young people may have attractions they desire to change or moderate. Others may simply desire counseling to live a chaste life.  In either instance, there should be options for families to make informed decisions. A ban would deny families the religious freedom to seek counseling aligned with their faith. d enter your comments here. You are limited to approximately 3000 words.
