Ideology Driven, Not Science Driven

This is an attempt to silence a "certain" group of professional counselors who do not agree with a "certain" ideology. It is a political attempt to shut down speech with which you don't agree. It is emotionally and ideologically driven. The supposed “immutability” of sexual orientation has not been proven, in fact, there are studies that prove otherwise. It also demonizes one group of professionals to push an agenda. I am appalled that our Governor would even consider such an action.
