Following a series of challenges to so-called "ex-gay therapy" practices across the country, Democratic U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.) introduced a resolution this morning urging Congress to condemn what has been characterized as junk science by the mainstream medical community. At her Nov. 28 press conference on Capitol Hill, Speier announced the resolution, calling on states to follow California's lead, which recently outlawed so-called "ex-gay therapy" for minors at the hands of licensed therapists.
