Please support Missouri’s anti-conversion therapy bill


Missouri could become the next state to ban conversion therapy for minors, and your legislators need to hear your support of this bill.

The bill, S.B. 658, would protect LGBTQ youth from the barbaric, pseudoscientific religious treatment deceitfully called “conversion therapy” by restricting any licensed physician or mental health care professional in the state from engaging in the practice.

Conversion therapy is a dangerous and discredited practice aimed at altering a child’s sexual orientation or gender identity, often basing the “therapy” in religious shame and guilt. Many governmental health organizations have denounced the practice as both physically and psychologically traumatizing. Individuals who endure this so-called treatment are at a higher risk for suicide and depression. Read more.
