Vote on Gay ‘Conversion Therapy’ Ban Delayed

The New Jersey Senate has put off a vote on a bill banning licensed therapists from trying to convert gay minors into heterosexuals.The postponement was made Thursday so some unspecified changes could be made to the legislation.

It will be heard next by an Assembly panel.

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 idea of what is sometimes called “conversion therapy” has increasingly drawn criticism.

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.
