Ban Conversion Therapy

This practice needs to be banned. How could you in good conscience put your child or anyone else’s child through this? It’s been proven that it is mentally harmful for anyone and some attempt suicide because of the damage it does. It’s not right or legal to beat your child so it should be illegal to mess your child up mentally. It all comes down to mental abuse. All these pro-conversion therapy people scream separation of state and religion, but are the same ones that want state and religion together when it suits their horrible ways (example banning abortion). Do the right thing and ban this disgusting, harmful practice.
