Public News Service – May 04, 2017
The bill passed the state’s House of Representatives on Tuesday by a vote 141-to-8. Final passage would make Connecticut the seventh state in the nation to ban the long-discredited practice that claims to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. According to David McGuire, director of the ACLU of Connecticut, the bill bans exchanging money for conversion therapy, and mental health professionals who offer it could be sanctioned or even lose their license.
