California becomes 1st state to ban ‘gay cure’ therapy for teens

NBC News: California has become the first state in the nation to ban therapy that tries turning gay teens straight. Gov. Jerry Brown says he signed Senate Bill 1172, which prohibits children under 18 from undergoing ‘sexual orientation change efforts.’ The law goes into effect Jan. 1.

The bill was sponsored by Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, who says unethical practices by mental-health providers to try changing a young person’s sexual orientation have caused psychological harm.
