A Petition to Support a Federal Ban on Conversion Therapy

As of today, over half a million LGBT adults (698,000) have experienced conversion therapy. Over half of these people (350,000) experienced conversion therapy as a minor. Currently, over 77,000 LGBT minors will go through conversion therapy before they reach the age of 18. Conversion therapy is an ineffective and unethical practice. Conversion therapy is a variety of unscientific "treatments" aimed at changing a person's sexuality or gender identity. It has been denounced and highly advised against by America's leading medical and mental health organizations. Conversion therapy is extremely dangerous and can cause depression, anxiety, and suicide. Conversion Therapy is already banned in 20 states, let's ban it nationwide!
