Make Conversion Therapy Illegal

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Conversion therapy is a harmful process that attempts to alter the state of mind of LGBTQ+ individuals so that they no longer identify as gay. This is done through abusive and harmful methods such as electroshock therapy, aversion therapy, and cognitive therapy. At the end of this process, there are no consequential results regarding their sexuality, and they are left with scars that endure throughout their lives. The APA has conducted research that proves that this method is ineffective and it often leads to increased levels of depression, shame, self-hatred, and suicide. It is time to take a stand so that LGBTQ+ individuals aren't submitted to this life-threatening, ineffective form of counseling. Sign this petition to support making conversion therapy illegal.
