Some States Are Taking A Stand Against Controversial Gay Conversion Therapy

Some States Are Taking A Stand Against Controversial Gay Conversion Therapy

Quote:
Lawmakers in several states are considering legislation that would ban conversion therapy, a controversial practice that's sometimes touted as a gay "cure" that has proven harmful and been denounced by many, including the American Psychiatric Association.

A bipartisan effort called the “Youth Mental Health Protection Act” being pushed in West Virginia says "being lesbian, gay, or bisexual is not a disease, disorder, illness, deficiency, or shortcoming," citing the APA's findings on conversion therapy as proof a ban is needed.

“Our first and most important duty is to protect our children,” Del. Stephen Skinner (D), West Virginia's first openly gay lawmaker and the lead sponsor of the bill, said in a statement released by the group Fairness West Virginia. “The Youth Mental Health Protection Act prevents LGBT youth from medical quackery. Conversion therapy is not based on science or evidence and can do serious damage to young people forced into it.”
This program needs to be eliminated and federal funding for it should stop. It is not working, it is not real science nor therapy and it is used only to fulfill a cult agenda.

Produce one piece of evidence that federal dollars were used.
