Britain Proposes Law to Ban Conversion Therapies Offered to LGBT People

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

Britain vows to ban conversion therapy for the LGBT community in England and Wales, disputing the efficacy of treatments that claim to “change” a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.  “The Bill will protect everyone, including those targeted on the basis of their sexuality, or being transgender” Culture Minister Michelle Donelan said.  Several have called for a ban on these therapies, while others have argued that the ban could make discussions with doctors or therapists seeking to help people with gender issues illegal.
