Utah becomes 19th state to ban the discredited child ’gay conversion therapy’

Utah is becoming the 19th American state to outlaw the discredited practice of LGBTQ+ conversion therapy for children. Approximately two-thirds of the state’s 3.1 million residents are members of the Mormon church, therefore the Mormon church’s influence was needed to support of the ban. Republican state representative Craig Hall when recently questioned said the measure will ’truly save lives’.

While we're at it can we also ban hormone replacement therapy because both practices to children are equally as evil.

Good. So transition kids to another gender should also be banned then, since it is a type of conversion

It's about time. Whatever your opinion on LGBT etc, this is still abuse. It's almost like Bernie's people wanting to "reeducate" conservatives in gulags.

Good. You would think child abuse would be illegal anyway. As long as this does not consider religious groups illegal now for counseling homosexuals.

Conversion therapy in modern terms is literally psychs working with kids to try and reinforce their birth-gender. It isn't 1950's EST. It makes no sense for it to be banned when we let kids take hormones and teach them about BDSM in health class.

Ok, as long as helping kids to "transition" is also banned.

I take back what I said. This infringes on religious freedom to counsel those who ask questions and seek help. A parent has authority over a child to take them to a pastor for counsel.

In the words of MLK himself, "The type of feeling that you have toward boys is probably not an innate tendency, but something that has been culturally acquired. Your reasons for adopting this habit have now been consciously suppressed or unconsciously repressed. Therefore, it is necessary to deal with this problem by getting back to some of the experiences and circumstances that led to the habit. In order to do this I would suggest that you see a good psychiatrist who can assist you in bringing to the forefront of conscience all of those experiences and circumstances that led to the habit.".

I'm excited for the awesome kids that don't need to be put into that situation. They need love and reassurance, not gender bender confusion.

omfg the idiots talking about trans kids in this comment section make me want to scream. no one, not a soul, not a single doctor, puts children on hormone replacement therapy. no one's cutting up little timmy's dinker and turning it into a vagina. people are acting like its child abuse to let your son play with dolls and wear a skirt, jfc
