Why NYC Is Repealing Its Ban On Conversion Therapy
“This was a painful decision that was made after leading LGBTQ advocates requested that the Council take this drastic step,” Johnson said in a statement, via
Politico. “The sad reality is the courts have changed considerably over the last few years, and we cannot count on them to rule in favor of much-needed protections for the LGBTQ community. To be clear, all of us still believe
this alleged ‘therapy’ is barbaric and inhumane, but repealing this law seemed to be the best path forward.”
