Governor unleashes executive order banning ‘conversion therapy’

The governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, has joined the agenda to censor Americans’ free speech, unleashing an executive order banning “conversion therapy.”

While that term has been used by opponents derogatorily, a common understanding is that it is talk therapy delivered by professionals to those who have unwanted same-sex attractions.

The Washington Examiner said the Democrat has directed state agencies to discourage such therapy for anyone.

He also ordered that state funds are not to be used for such therapy.

He claimed, “Conversion therapy is a traumatic practice based on junk science that actively harms the people it supposedly seeks to treat. This discriminatory practice is widely rejected by medical and scientific professionals and has been proven to lead to worse mental health outcomes for LGBTQIA+ youth subjected to it. This is about keeping our children safe from bullying and extreme practices that harm them.”

The concept early on was promoted in California, which banned therapists from talking to people about leaving homosexuality, but promoted the idea of counseling people to become homosexual.

WND reported when Joe Biden, on taking office, issued a similar order.

His focus was to crack down on talk therapy that helps people who have unwanted same-sex attractions.

He also ordered the Department of Health and Human Services “to help prevent LGBT youth suicide by expanding access to mental health resources.”

At the time, the White House statement included a comment from HHS Assistant Secretary for Health Admiral Rachel Levine, a man who now identifies as a woman.
