Letters April 26, 2018 8:00 am Maine stood up for LGBTQ youth Maine’s Senate demonstrated a commitment to protecting LGBTQ youth from the harmful practice of conversion therapy when they voted against Rep. Susan Austin’s amendment to LD 912, An Act To Clarify the Scope of Practice of Certain Licensed Professionals Regarding Conversion Therapy, introduced by Rep. Ryan Fecteau of Biddeford.” Austin’s amendment claimed that “talk therapy is not considered conversion therapy.” Any therapy that seeks to change an individual’s sexual orientation or gender, whether through physical tactics or talk therapy, is conversion therapy.

"This is a case where … [Read more...] about Judge again rejects lengthy prison terms in ex-Army couple’s child abuse case
