Conversion Therapy is Child Abuse

Any of these RWNJ's claiming they should have the "freedom" to determine the path of "treatment" for their child might as well be advocating for whipping them with belts or holding their hands to a hot iron. Conversion therapy is a tortuous, psychologically destructive, scientifically baseless, and wholly useless practice that small-minded Christians force upon their supposed loved ones. It has no place in a just, modern society. I pains me that we have to fight this stupidity in 2019, but fight it we must.

Put an end to this hurtful, draconian, pseudo-scientific institution. Ban conversion therapy everywhere, now and forever.
