FFRF Supports Bans on Conversion Therapy

Frequently associated with religious organizations, conversion therapy — also sometimes known as “anti-gay” or “reparative therapy” —is widely agreed to be unscientific and outright dangerous to the people subjected to it.

Twenty states and over 70 cities and counties have passed laws limiting and regulating conversion therapy, especially when it comes to minors. While these laws are an important first step in outlawing this dangerous practice, it is important to continue to advocate for their expansion to include conversion therapy targeted at adults, as well as to lobby for every state to adopt these protections.
