In New York, Governor Cuomo cuts off some money for conversion "therapy"

Seal of New York.
By executive order: The New York State Financial Services Department is issuing new rules that prohibit insurance companies from covering conversion therapy for anyone under 18. The State Health Department will issue a regulation prohibiting the use of Medicaid for conversion therapy. Finally, centers overseen by the state's Department of Mental Health will be prohibited from providing conversion therapy to anyone under the age of 18.

Of course numerous unlicensed religious crackpots will still offer parents the opportunity to turn their little queers straight — for a price. The fact that the American Psychiatric association warns that these efforts are not only ineffective but can lead to depression and anxiety doesn't seem to matter to some folks. The APA is doing Satan's work. Praise the Lord and the gay is gone. This is, in effect, the manual with step-by-step instructions for how to turn your teen into an angry and neurotic adult.
