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.
