    Exclamation Maryland Bans Gay Conversion Therapy for Minors

    Maryland Bans Gay Conversion Therapy for Minors
    by Andy Towle

    "Maryland has become the 11th state to ban gay conversion therapy for minors."
    "Maryland joins Washington, Connecticut, California, Nevada, New Jersey, the District of Columbia, Oregon, Illinois, Vermont, New Mexico, and Rhode Island in banning the harmful practice."






    ================================================== ==

    KUDOS to the State of Maryland in its decision to ban the dangerous Gay conversion therapy. It joins all of the other states that obviously have better sense than those states that still allow that egregious practice. Undoubtedly, even more states will come on board to ban that practice.

    Thanks from Friday13

    The following illustrates just how inhumane the Gay conversion therapy treatments are.

    ‘Survivor’ of so-called gay conversion therapy warns of dangers, recalls electroshock and other horrors
    By Nicole Hensley

    "Samuel Brinton could teach a class about so-called gay conversion therapy. Some people call it psychiatric treatment, but he and others say it's nothing more than abuse."
    "Brinton had undergone electroshock treatment and had ice and hot copper coils bound to his hands while being forced to look at pictures of men touching each other, he said."
    "The most dangerous of the techniques — which once included such therapeutic strategies as administering electroshock to a person's genitals — have fallen out of favor, but equally harmful methods still exist, Ames warns."
