VIOLATES Religious Liberty!
This bill has been heard in the Senate Commerce, Labor & Energy, but no action has been taken.
Oppose SB201: Prohibits a psychiatrists, psychologist, social worker, registered nurse in psychiatry, marriage and family therapist from providing any “sexual orientation or gender identity” conversion therapy including counseling to anyone under 18 regardless of their willingness or the willingness of their parents.

The Senate Commerce, Labor & Energy Committee Members need to hear from you.
MESSAGE: (write your own message). Vote NO on SB201. This bill violates the Rights of Conscience of psychotherapists. It violates the rights of parents to bring up their own children. It violates the choice of children under 18. It wipes out religious liberty.
-From SB201:Bill: “A psychotherapist shall not provide any sexual orientation or gender identity conversion therapy to a person who is under 18 years of age regardless of the willingness of the person or his or her parent or legal guardian to authorize such therapy. Any violation of subsection 1 is a ground for disciplinary action by a state board that licenses a psychotherapist…”
-Violates parental rights to bring up their children. Will this lead to a parent’s attempt to counsel their child against LGBTQ ideas constitute child abuse and put them in jeopardy of having their children forcibly taken away?
-Nevada Constitution protects religious liberty. This bill eliminates religious liberty, the right of conscience and interferes with the Doctor and Patient relationship.
-This bill is a totalitarian anti-religious mandate which violates the fundamental right of conscience and CHOICE.
