Hallelujah! The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld California's S.B. 1172, the landmark bill that makes it illegal for licensed California therapists to practice gay conversion therapy on minors. Last April I felt compelled to go to court to hear the appeals case.
On Tuesday, June 26, the California Assembly's Committee on Business, Professions, and Consumer Protection voted 5-2 in favor of Senate Bill 1172. The bill would prohibit mental-health professionals from trying to change the sexual orientation of minors who are under their care.
