Conversion Therapy controversy!!

    Children who have issues with their assigned gender identity and want to understand who they really are as a biological male or female have every right to have professional counseling to do so.  Their parents or guardians must be part of the consent and have a supportive role in the process.  Otherwise, prohibiting counselors from assisting kids who want this change is most certainly wrong and not freedom of choice.
