Counselors MUST have the freedom to speak honestly with clients
 

Please do not stifle counselors providing guidance to children.  My nephew has tried suicide at least three times because he's not been told the truth about his sexuality.  A friend's daughter received honest guidance and is now living a very happy life.  If a counselor cannot be honest, then what's the point.  Politics does not fix our children.
