No parent has a right to force their child to be tortured. There is nothing "theraputic" about these practices, which can include things like electrocution, inducing hypothermia, and psychological torture that results in traumatic responses to normal stimuli. Of course, that's to say nothing of the fact that it doesn't even work and is complete pseudoscience. It is barbaric and disgusting that they continue to be permitted to operate in so many states. America needs to be dragged into the 21st century. Or hell, just the Geneva Convention would do.
