New Jersey Bill Outlawing Reparative Therapy Heads To State Senate.

The Asbury Park (NJ) Press (3/31, Racioppi) reported that reparative therapy, also known as conversion therapy, “is on the brink of banishment in New Jersey. A bill outlawing such therapy for those under 18 is headed to the state Senate for a vote after its Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee passed the bill by a 7 to 1 vote March 18.” The piece also noted that the “American Psychiatric Association…and the American Medical Association are among the national organizations that either oppose or warn against reparative therapy.”
