Calls to ban LGBT ‘conversion therapy’ in UK

Jun 6, 2020 by

from BBC News:

More than 100,000 people have signed an online petition calling for “conversion therapy” – aimed at changing a person’s sexuality – to be made illegal.

It will now be considered for a debate in Parliament, having gained the required support, two years after the government pledged to ban the practice.

And the charity Stonewall has urged the government to “urgently” publish its plans to “end these harmful practices”.

The government said it will “consider all options for ending the practice”.

It added that certain “abhorrent and violent practices which may be classed as conversion therapy, such as ‘corrective’ rape” were already covered by existing criminal offences.

“Conversion therapy” refers to any form of treatment or psychotherapy which aims to change a person’s sexual orientation or to suppress a person’s gender identity.
