 logoDear Friends of NARTH:       

This newsletter is full of examples of how NARTH is making an essential difference in the debate over client rights, student rights, sound psychological care, and the continued need to reach out those struggling with unwanted homosexual attractions. To push forward with our important work we need your help!
      The new Journal of Human Sexuality - for example - cost NARTH more than $25,000 to write, publish, print, and distribute. A very reasonable amount really for all that it accomplished. Our total annual expenditures are very modest. We only budget about $18,000 each month for all our NARTH activities compared to the millions of dollars gay activists spend to mislead the public about the usefulness of treatment and the assistance available for those seeking help and accurate, reliable scientific information.
      To continue this important fight we rely on our members and friends for support. Please consider going to our web site right now and making a generous donation to NARTH. Every month new lawsuits are filed against prospective counseling and psychology students who will not abandon their belief that unwanted homosexuality can be treated. We need to help them! Every month we receive almost one hundred telephone calls from individuals and families looking for reliable therapists. They need our assistance! Each month thousands of individuals visit the NARTH web site seeking accurate information about homosexuality. We must be there to give them help and hope!
      I promise you that if you will stand with us in these difficult economic times we will stretch every dollar to get the most value we possibly can. We will expand the use of those dollars by utilizing volunteers to man information booths at conventions across the nation over the next few months, we will continue to use electronic communications to share with people the NARTH story, and as a Board we will continue to teach, travel, and speak at our own expense where ever we can. 
    The success of this organization really rests in your hands and we thank you in advance for your continued support!
 
Julie Harren Hamilton, PhD.
President

54% of US HIV Infections Caused by Homosexual Activities Among Men 13 to 29

June 18, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The U.S. Center for Disease Control has issued a fact sheet which says that 54% of HIV infections among males, aged 13-29, were caused by homosexual contact in 2006. This is 
opposed to 34% of infections caused by heterosexual contact in the same demographic. 
 
"From 2001 through 2006, male-to-male sex was the largest HIV 
transmission category in the United States and the only one associated with an increasing number of HIV/AIDS diagnoses," the fact sheet said. The article further states that 77% of HIV positive homosexual men between the ages of 15 and 29 do not know that they are infected. 
 
The demographic of young adult homosexual males between the ages of 13 and 29 is the only noticeably growing demographic in terms of HIV infection.  
 


Harassment of Students Unwilling to Affirm Homosexuality Continues 

IFTCOnly months ago Eastern Michigan University dismissed Julea Ward from the university counseling program because she would not agree prior to a counseling session to affirm a client's homosexual behavior and would not retract her stance in subsequent disciplinary proceedings.

Now a Missouri State University social work student Emily Brooker was threatened with expulsion after she refused (as a matter of personal belief) to send a signed letter to the Missouri state legislature in favor of homosexual foster parenting and adoption. This violation resulted not only in a federal lawsuit (which the school settled) but also in an official report that found that a culture of intimidation rife in the schools School of Social Work. For instance, many students and faculty stated a fear of voicing differing opinions from the instructor or colleague, and bullying was used by both students and faculty to characterize specific faculty. 
 
NARTH supports the Alliance Defense Fund Center for Academic Freedom who have filed a lawsuit against Eastern Michigan University.
 
We encourage all psychology, clinical social work, and counseling students to consider joining the NARTH student division (only $10 annually) to help us fight for the rights of clients, therapists, and  counseling students.
