"Conversion Therapy"
 

The state's efforts to discourage or downright outlaw conversion therapy is misguided and dangerous.  This job belongs to the parents of children seeking to understand and perhaps change their unwanted sexual feelings.  To go through life feeling like an outcast and an aberration leads many to suicide.  Please reconsider your planned regulation and put it in the trash where it belongs.
