At Least Nine States Now Ban Conversion Therapy For Minors

The New York Times (5/24, Hauser, Subscription Publication) reports that currently, “at least nine states now ban ‘conversion therapy’ for minors, a discredited method meant to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity, after Nevada and Connecticut this month joined others in prohibiting the practice.” As state lawmakers around the country “have debated the bans, many have noted during the legislative process that conversion therapy has been discredited by experts.”
