    I only wish they could ban this on a national level that way we wouldn't have to fight state by state. Conversion therapy is torture, plain and simple, and doing it on children and teenagers is child abuse.

    Calling "torture" "therapy" is a good way to get the public to buy it. Why do you think we say "enhanced interrogation techniques"? Euphemisms.

    I just call it torture in both instances. The only way to get more people to see both for what they really are is to have more victims come out about their ordeals.

    The more the merrier.

    Too bad they can't ban it for adults as well.

    I might be moving to Oregon. I wish they would ban it in more states though.

    They've banned LGBT enhanced interrogation techniques. Why euphemisms don't work.
