End Conversion Therapy for Minors Now!!

Do not allow minors to be put through the physical, mental, emotional, and psychological trauma! It’s simply not worth it. They go in already confused and scared. Then there is a high chance they come out of it with hatred, depression, anxiety, self-harm issues, or an inability to emotionally connect with others in a healthy manner. Please, please, please! Stop this now! Instead of harsh criticism, these minors need to be met with love and acceptance. Only through love can the hatred be driven out.
