California passes Bill Becoming First in Nation to Outlaw Reparative Therapy…
In a 51-21 vote (i’d like to know who the 21 scumbags were) The California State Assembly passed a billTuesday, passed a bill that prohibits children and teenagers from undergoing gay conversion therapy. If Gov. Jerry Brown signs the bill it would be the first state to ban the fraudulent practice.
The bill will hit Brown’s desk on Friday and he has not given any indication on what he will do. But here is what you can do.
AllOut.org has launched a petition asking for the Gov. to sign the bill into law. And you can sign the petition and urge him to do so. AllOut’s executive director Andre Banks had this to say:
“In the last six months alone, AllOut.org members have lead the charge to successfully push back against attempts to export ‘pray away the gay’ as a legitimate medical treatment in the UK, France and Argentina. Now it’s time for Governor Brown to protect the lives and well-being of thousands of young people by making California the first state to ban these abusive practices once and for all.
“This isn’t just a problem in California or the United States. American religious extremists are bringing these dangerous practices to more than 30 countries all over the world. This isn’t science. These are nothing more than gay exorcisms and they have been overwhelming rejected by the medical community. California can set a powerful example on the world stage if Governor Brown signs this bill into law.”
