Conversion Therapy is wrong

I respect the American Psychological Association and their position that conversion therapy is detrimental to the mental health of those under its effects.  I have a child who is LGBTQ and embrace that love my child completely.  My heart breaks for people whose families seek to change them and not accept them for who they are.  Conversion Therapy is harmful and shouldn't be allowed in Virginia.
