Massachusetts May Invoke Ex-Gay "Therapy" Ban

From The Advocate

Massachusetts may join the growing list of states that will outlaw gay "conversion therapy" being practiced among minors. 
Testimony in favor of the ban was heard by the Massachusetts Legislature’s Committee on Children, Families, and Persons with Disabilities on Tuesday. H 154 was sponsored by Rep. Carl Sciortino, and would bar licensed health care professionals from engaging in any type of therapy to "cure" a person's sexual orientation or gender identity, for those under 18 years of age.
The American Psychiatric Association has deemed conversion therapy to be an unproven practice, which it officially opposes.
You can't be cured if you aren't sick to begin with.
