Respect Parental Rights

Please do NOT ban children and their families from seeking professional help through counselors and therapists.  This ban would deny parental rights to seek guidance for their children with help resisting same-sex attractions and gender dysphoria.  This ban would also put the counselors and therapists at risk of losing their licenses or jobs to assist families and children who want to resist same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria.
