Two More States Set to Ban Conversion Therapy

Ad Feedback

New York and Massachusetts could be the next states to ban conversion therapy, the treatment method therapists use to help kids overcome unwanted attraction to people of the same sex.

Last week, Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., signed a measure making his state the second to ban conversion therapy. California is currently the only other state to do so.

Meanwhile, Liberty Counsel filed a suit against New Jersey's law on Thursday. Plaintiffs include the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality and the American Association for of Christian Counselors.

Religion News reported they are concerned the law "will prohibit New Jersey licensed marriage and family therapists from respecting the rights of clients to make the decisions because the state has already made the decision...."

Consequently, therapists must decided between following state law or upholding their professional code of conduct.
