ex-gay conversion therapy
This is a debugging block
Representative Kelly Cassidy of Illinois is sponsoring a bill that seeks to ban the practice of so-called "conversion therapy" or "ex-gay therapy" on minors. Last week, the bill—titled the Conversion Therapy Prohibition Act--was approved by the state's House Human Services Committee in a 9-6 vote.
Legislation that would ban so-called "ex-gay" therapy failed to pass in the Minnesota Legislature.
The state of Washington is in the process of banning so-called 'gay cure conversion therapy.' This past January the bill was introduced to the Washington State Legislature.
Instead of creating new legislation that explicitly bans the practice one state at a time, Jacob M. Victor, a law student at Yale, suggested we try a different approach---making use of laws that are already in place.
