ST. PAUL -- A bill banning conversion therapy is moving forward at the State Capitol after passing out of a House Committee.

At a hearing Wednesday, former State Representative Hunter Cantrell, who is openly gay, testified...

practitioners of conversion therapy deceive parents into thinking that there is something wrong with their children, they claim, fraudulently, that they have successful techniques for changing someone's sexuality

But Robert Post with the American Academy of Medical Ethics opposes the bill and testified that there are thousands of examples...

where with work on uncovering, exploring and healing past wounds, many with same-sex attractions slowly develop opposite-sex attractions

The bill would prohibit providing conversion therapy to vulnerable adults and clients under age 18.
