No Therapy for Sexually Confused Girls and Boys: SB 121 No Conversion Therapy hearing Wednesday 3-8-2017

The latest assault on the American family is disallowing families the right to counseling.  If SB 121: No Conversion Therapy, (Candelaria, Romero) passes in New Mexico, the state will place restrictions on the type of therapy sexually confused boys and girls can receive.  The law is a stark invasion of a family’s right to privacy and decision making within the confines of the family unit.
The proposed law is also a violation of a person’s First Amendment right to free speech, in addition to violating the right of privacy within the therapist/client relationship.  The Supreme Court in Roe v Wade established the right to privacy nationally and this has been the national standard.
SB 121: No Conversion Therapy
is to be heard tomorrow morning
Wednesday, March 8
at the Capitol at
8:30 a.m. in Room 315.
The bill has passed the Senate and is being heard in the House Health and Human Services Committee, Rep. Gail Armstrong, Chair.
