A Prohibition To Counseling Children Against Same-Sex Attraction
VIOLATES the Exercise of Right of Conscience!
VIOLATES Parental Rights!
VIOLATES Individual Choice Rights!
VIOLATES Religious Liberty Rights!
This bill prohibits even “talk” therapy opposing same sex attraction…..
but its okay to promote the LGTBQ agenda.
We must oppose SB201: SB201 prohibits a psychiatrist, psychologist, homeopathic physician, social worker, registered nurse in psychiatry, and marriage and family therapist from providing any “sexual orientation or gender identity” therapy that seeks to change behaviors or gender expressions or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward persons of the same gender. The bill even prohibits parents from seeking help for their child and prohibits the child under 18 from seeking help.
Consider the far reaching effects of this bill.
—Your religious liberties, free speech and your rights as a parent will be gone.
—It interferes with the doctor/patient relationship.
—This bill will affect marriage and family therapist who are staff members of churches or religious counseling centers.
—Will this lead to a parent being accused of child abuse because they counsel their child against LGBTQ ideas?
—How will this bill affect “psychotherapists” who also serve as lay clergy in their church and counsel youth and families?
