Conversion Therapy Part 2

A bill that looks to ban conversion therapy for minors by licensed therapists and social workers with the goal of changing that individual's sexual orientation or gender identity has passed its first hurdle. The House of Representatives voted to pass the bill today. The bill is now on its way to the Senate for a vote. Yesterday on News Source 8 we explained how the bill came to be, why its sponsor Ryan Fecteau believes its important, and why opponents say it takes rights away from parents and religious counselors. Tonight we look further into what conversion therapy is defined as by the bill's sponsor, and we hear from a Christian counselor on how its passing would impact her work.
