Oregon Moves To Ban "Conversion Therapy"
Oregon is on its way to joining California and New Jersey as states that ban "conversion therapy" for gay minors. Both houses of the legislature passed a bill putting the controversial therapy off-limits to people under the age of 18.
The therapy purports to turn homosexuals into heterosexuals, and is not accepted by much of the psychiatric establishment.
The bill is welcomed by Basic Rights Oregon and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
Both groups send representatives to visit The Exchange.
