Many people are surprised to learn that anti-LGBTQ religious groups and “therapists” use dangerous, outdated practices to attempt to change people’s sexual orientations or gender identities through a variety of methods, including induced vomiting and electric shock. All of the nation’s leading professional medical and mental health associations condemn these practices as unnecessary, ineffective, and dangerous. These bills would ban the practice for anyone under the age of 18. Currently, the practice is banned by law for minors in California, Illinois, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont and the District of Columbia.
