Maryland Caves In To Religious Extremists – Kills Reparative Therapy Ban

Maryland legislators have caved in to these religious extremists who want to continue to harm confused LGBTQ youth. This is an outrage! The damage caused by this so-called therapy is now on their heads. We need more stories of real life people damaged by this therapy…

 Late last week, Liberty Counsel’s defense of minors and their counselors won another victory when the Maryland House Health and Government Operations Committee cancelled a hearing on a change therapy ban. Earlier this year, a legislative committee in Virginia struck down a similar bill, and the Ninth Circuit ruled that California’s ban on change therapy will not go into effect until the High Court acts on Liberty Counsel’s petition to overturn such bans.

In what has been called a top priority for LGBT activists during the 2014 legislative session, legislators in Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin have introduced legislation that bans youth from receiving counsel to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior, and identity. Liberty Counsel filed suit after similar bans were passed in California and New Jersey.
