Conversion Therapy is Child Abuse
 

The practice of Conversion Therapy has been widely discredited by legitimate psychologists. It is a form of emotional and psychological torture and absolutely should be banned. This archaic and abusive practice has no place in this state or this country. It is intrinsically harmful to a child and must not be tolerated. No parent has the right to abuse their children.
