Low Legislation Would Declare “Conversion Therapy” Fraudulent (PART 1)

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

(Sacramento) – A measure authored by Assemblymember Evan Low (D-San Jose) would ban the practice of “conversion therapy” treatments that claim to be able to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. “Study after study has shown that ‘conversion therapy’ is ineffective, damaging, and counterproductive,” said Assemblymember Low. “It is our duty to protect Californians from such deceptive practices that will expose them to physical and emotional harm.” Assembly Bill 2943 would declare conversion therapy a fraudulent practice under the Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
