Opposition to Any Ban on Conversion Therapy
I strongly oppose any regulatory ban on conversion therapies duly chosen by parents to benefit their children. Not only would any ban restrict basic parental rights to instill critical religious, ethical and moral values, but it would violate the constitutionally protected prerogatives of parents to do what they deem is medically best for the mental, physical and psychological well-being of their minor children. The more options available to parents, the better equipped they will be to give all needed beneficial assistance to their children. A blanket ban would c learlystrip them of their responsibility to care for their children, and as such, would violate the Commonwealth's Constitution.
