Barack Obama denounces ‘conversion therapies’ for gays
By LOUIS NELSON 4/8/15 9:48 PM EDT
President Barack Obama will call for an end to so-called “conversion therapies” for homosexual and transgender young people. Such therapy, which is also often referred to as “reparative” therapy, is designed to stop feelings of homosexuality or nontraditional gender identification and is often offered by conservative religious groups. It is seen by many, including the American Psychiatric Association, as harmful to the subject’s mental health.
