Therapy bans and reports of trans regret grow

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BP) -- The success of LGBT activists in dictating how therapists counsel minors about sexuality and gender dysphoria reportedly continues to gain momentum as 2019 begins. Some pro-LGBT groups want to make it illegal for therapists to encourage children to embrace heterosexuality or their biological sex and expect legislative victories in at least four states this year: Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts and New York. Fourteen states and the District of Columbia, as well as cities and municipalities in seven other states, have laws against so-called "conversion therapy" on the books. Last week, the Denver City Council reportedly voted unanimously to similarly restrict therapists.
