There is a serious free speech principle here. While some forms of therapy may indeed cause harm, it is up to the medical community to oversee that, NOT the government. The matter of whether people may need or want therapy to address their sexuality is a personal one. Banning ANYTHING related to therapy is an egregious overstepping of constitutional rights. All these folks that want conversion therapy banned are barking up the wrong tree! NOT a matter for governent!
