American citizens have a right to counseling, no matter what kind, if they desire it!

Not only are freedom of choice rights being VIOLATED for those desiring counseling for unwanted same sex attraction, but the consequences of sex change therapies, already studied and conclusive, have been shown to cause extremely serious medical problems, particularly in the young.  This constant, radical, destructive push, for years, from a small minority, many of whom do not even live in our Commonwealth (I attended a meeting in Henrico County, spoke for two minutes, and heard the other presenters), is trying to force a harmful, anti-freedom agenda on the citizens of Virginia. Thank you for considering this important point of view, which represents many of my fellow citizens.
