Violating Patient Rights
 

It is beyond me why the board would want to restrict counselors from helping patients to rid themselves of unwanted sexual orientation. If the patient is desiring to change why is this is a problem? The only reason I can fathom is the board's members are either brainwashed by the gay lobby's propaganda or afraid of being falsely labeled as homophobic.  I wonder if someone wanted to rid themselves of heterosexual impulses that the board would be so restrictive.  Shame on you.
