Ill House, Ore Gov. approve gay conversion therapy bans

The Illinois House of Representatives has approved a bill banning gay conversion therapy for children. The bill passed by a margin of 68 to 43. Give some indication of momentum a similar bill failed in the House last year by 44 to 51 with 22 members not voting. The measure goes to the Senate where it is expected to pass.

Meanwhile in Oregon, Governor Kate Brown signed a similar bill into law. The new law makes it illegal for social workers or licensed mental health professional to practice therapy treatments purporting to change the sexual orientation of children.
