Oppose Banning Reparative Therapy

Dear Sir/Madame:

I strongly oppose any attempts to administratively ban use of Reparitive Therapy in the Coimmonwealth.  This underhanded tactic is an attempt by unrepresentative "special interest advocacy groups" to accomplish administratively what the Commonwealth's Legislature has wisely rejected a number of times.

It is more than ironic and hypocritical that those who loudly advocate "choice" regarding other controversial public policy issues, would take the "choice" of employing Repartive Therapy away from parents and others who may wish to employ this it.

I respectfully urge that all Administrative Bodies in the Commonwealth reject and efforts to administratively limit or ban the use of Reparative Therapy.

Sincerely yours,

Richard L. Corrigan
