Conversion therapy must be banned

As a parent of several LGBTQ+ kids, I support a ban on conversion therapy. Being LGBTQ+ is not a defect that needs fixing; people are born LGBTQ+, it's not something you can stamp out of them, and in fact trying to do so has been shown to be extremely harmful to their mental health. Conversion therapy is a form of abuse and should not be allowed to be peretrated on minor children.
