Unprofessional conduct - conversion therapy

I am completely against this legislation.  There are two sides to this argument, including many testimonies of people who have sought and benefited from counselling related to unwanted same sex attraction, and gender confusion.  Legislation like this takes the decision out of the hands of the individual and the ones closest to them, where it should be.

It is ludicrous to promote pro-choice, defending the right of the woman to make choices about her own body, and yet promote a legislation that takes choice related to mental health away from the individual.

Absolutely NO to this legislation, which is government overreach and activism.
