    Utah joins the states banning conversion therapy for minors

    It's about time too. Utah in specific has a lot of 'gay' issues.

    Utah banning ‘conversion therapy’ with Mormon church backing

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah is on its way to becoming the 19th state to ban the discredited practice of conversion therapy in January after state officials formed a proposal that has the support of the influential Church of a Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    Republican Gov. Gary Herbert announced Tuesday night that church leaders back a regulatory rule his office helped craft after legislative efforts for a ban on the therapy failed earlier this year.

    The faith known widely as the Mormon church opposed a previous version of the rule because it wanted assurances that church leaders and members who are therapists would be allowed to provide spiritual counseling for parishioners or families which were included in the latest conversion therapy ban plan.

    In a state where nearly every family has an LGTB member....the church is kinda forced to make concessions in order to keep itself relevant in these ever changing modern times.

    Just to throw a fly in the ointment, here...but in what way is this truly different than a desire to ban hormone therapy for minors?

    Conversion or reparative therapy should be banned nationally because of is both ineffective and dangerous. It is worse than saying Hopes and Prayers because it causes mental health problems. A persons's gender identity or sexual orientation is fixed before birth and cannot be changed, so stop trying. The problem is theistic religious belief, that should be mandated to have a warning label and be prohibited for minors.

    Washington, D.C. – In the wake of recent popular entertainment portrayals of conversion therapy, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) today reiterates its long-standing opposition to the practice. APA made clear with its 1998 position statement that “APA opposes any psychiatric treatment, such as “reparative” or “conversion” therapy, that is based on the assumption that homosexuality per se is a mental disorder or is based on the a priori assumption that the patient should change his or her homosexual orientation.”

    APA expanded on that position with a statement in 2013: “The American Psychiatric Association does not believe that same-sex orientation should or needs to be changed, and efforts to do so represent a significant risk of harm by subjecting individuals to forms of treatment which have not been scientifically validated and by undermining self-esteem when sexual orientation fails to change. No credible evidence exists that any mental health intervention can reliably and safely change sexual orientation; nor, from a mental health perspective does sexual orientation need to be changed.”

    I will agree with that. I have a friend who was forced to go through it when she was 16. It took her years to get over the suicidal thoughts.

    How does transgendered hormone therapy harm people any more than chemo, vaccines, insulin, or antibiotics?

    For a minor it could harm development psychologically

    I've heard gay conversion therapy called 'Pray Away The Gay.' Drive the subject loopy with fear & guilt. That should fix them right up.

    I'm am not aware of this happening unless they are misdiagnosed. Any medicine will harm people when they are misdiagnosed.

    Diagnosis is very subjective in this area
