NJ Ban on Gay ‘Conversion Therapy’ Up for Vote

A bill to prohibit licensed therapists in New Jersey from trying to convert gay minors into heterosexuals is up for a vote in the state Senate.

A Senate panel advanced the measure in March after a debate about the practice and how much say the state should have in parents’ decisions on how to raise their children.

The full Senate is scheduled to vote on the measure Thursday.

The idea of what’s sometimes called “conversion therapy” has increasingly drawn criticism for its methods.

Last year, four gay men sued a Jersey City group for fraud, saying its program included making them strip naked and attack effigies of their mothers with baseball bats.

Last year California became the first state to pass such a law. Its implementation was halted pending arguments over its constitutionality.
