Protect Parental Rights

I write to support parental rights to determine counseling or treatment for minors in their care concerning the child's "sexual orientation or gender identity, including efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions or to...reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of any gender."  And, I oppose any attempts by unelected bureaucrats or regulators to bypass or infringe on the fundamental rights of parents to care for their children and make determinations or healthcare decisions regarding the upbringing, education, wellbeing or care of their children.  Protect the freedom of Virginia families to determine or acquire the counseling they choose.
