Do not ban reparative therapy

I strongly oppose a ban on this therapy practice for both children and adults. A ban would strictly limit therapy options for people struggling with same sex attraction and gender disphoria, and would prevent parents from making faith based council get decisions on how to best help their children and their families  in these matters. Children in particular should not be denied the option to question their feelings, particularly since the majority of those who have these feelings at one point in their lives refute them later in life, and need the ability to talk though all options available to them.
