Ban Conversion Therapy

Conversion therapy is an abusive and harmful practice. There is no evidence to back up any positive effects, and it is based on lies and pseudoscience. There is, however, plenty of evidence linking it to poor mental health and increased risk of suicide. Banning conversion therapy would make people safer and prevent unethical people from profiting off of lies and fearmongering.
