New Jersey Closer to Gay Conversion Therapy Ban

Ad Feedback

New Jersey lawmakers are one step closer to banning children from receiving "reparative therapy" for homosexuality.

Some say the so-called "conversion therapy" has sparked a culture war between New Jersey residents who believe people are born gay and those who believe it is a learned behavior.

The New Jersey bill would outlaw people younger than 18 from undergoing the controversial therapy.

The measure now heads for a full state Senate vote, after passing in the Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee by a 7-1 vote on March 18.

California legislators passed a similar ban last year, but an appeals court ruled it violates the First Amendment.
