The state of New Mexico has become the seventh state to impose a ban on conversion therapy, the practice of attempting to force LGBTQ people into changing their sexual orientation, with GOP Gov. Susana Martinez signing into law a bill banning its use on minors.
The new "prohibition will apply to licensed physicians, nurses, psychologists and other health practitioners who apply conversion therapy to people under 18," the Associated Press reported. The law also sets up a system of penalties for violations under state licensing boards for those professions.

Waterboarding is involved but its cost $$ if it turns out you like it.
BFD. No big deal.
Now, if they’d just ban the conversion therapy the other direction.
All the “stuff” that is taught in our schools today..., “How do you know what you are, if you haven’t tried everything?”
Yeah, we know. Can’t prevent that conversion therapy.
“GOP Gov. Susana Martinez”
How pathetic is that!
Religious freedom counts for nothing with most of the GOP and all of the democrats.
How did "force" get into this? That therapy is sometimes voluntarily chosen by patients.
Who hates Queers more: USA conservatives, Saudis or Israelis?
You can still convert people over 21.
Pederasts and perverts can corrupt minors up to age 18 and it is criminal to counsel a “questioning” youth to consider heteronormality.
The Sex Positive Agenda has come for your children.
so another state bans parents from seeking help for their mentally ill child?
Brick by brick they will tear down the church altogether.
How can parents “convert” their children to theism when the socialist educrat system tells them there is no God?
It too will be banned someday.
It takes a village to indoctrinate your children and turn them against the family.
Restoration Therapy, that’s the way to go!

“is criminal to counsel a questioning youth to consider heteronormality.”
So, in other words in this case the State CAN come into the doctors’ office and prevent access to life-saving therapy?* The baby-killers are always trotting out that stupid argument to scare people to vote against pro-life candidates!
*HIV/AIDS is still around and it’s still a death sentence, modern drug therapy is only at best an indefinite stay of execution...
Last week, I heard a woman, who said she was a lesbian, on the radio and she claimed lesbians love to convert straight women.
That was my first thought as well.
