New Hampshires Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law on Friday a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors.
Medical and mental health professionals including the American Medical Association say the practice to change a minor's sexual orientation or gender identity is proven to be ineffective and can cause psychological harm to LGBTQ youth.
Discrimination in any form is unacceptable and runs contrary to New Hampshires Live Free or Die Spirit, Sununu said in a statement, as reported by WMUR. If we really want to be the Live Free or Die state, we must ensure that New Hampshire is a place where every person, regardless of their background, has an equal and full opportunity to pursue their dreams and to make a better life for themselves and their families.
The conservative group Cornerstone Action, which fought against the legislation, expressed disappointment in a statement calling for strengthening the Christian base of the New Hampshire legislature.
"I expected Governor Sununu to stand by Christian principles and veto these bills, but he didn't," Cornerstone executive director Shannon McGinley wrote. "Yes, it's discouraging. We fight to win. The fight is almost always close, but somehow with the grace of God, we've prevailed in some important battles. This time we didn't. And it's a big loss."
New Hampshire becomes the 13th state to ban the practice, and Delaware is close behind to become the 14th.
Legislators in the General Assembly passed the measure on Thursday and it now heads to the desk of Democratic Gov. John Carney, who is expected to sign it into law, according to WDEL Radio.
Sununu also signed a bill on Friday that extends protections against workplace, housing and public discrimination to transgender people, according to WMUR news.
Might as well Ban Psychologists and Psychiatrists.
Obviously their Services are now obsolete.
Now the state motto is ‘Live freely and die of AIDS’.
A GOP governor should try to ban abortion on grounds that the procedure discriminates against the rights of the fetus.
And the GOP e wonder why nobody votes for them anymore
The current crop of Psychologists and Psychiatrists, caused this queer abomination to become acceptable in the first place
And shouldn’t it be somebody’s choice as an adult if they want to go to therapy and see if they can work out an issue they may be confused about their sexuality? who is the state to tell people they can’t have that option?
its bad enough when an adult decides to do this, have this done to himself
at the very least, we can keep the mercenary butchers away from our children
let them grow up first, think things over for themselves as adults, and then.....well....
Yet these same "professionals" claim it's fine to change a minor's body in order to change their sex--inmates running the asylum.
the practice to change a minor’s sexual orientation or gender identity is proven to be ineffective
And yet these same people tell us that transgenderism (the act of changing ones gender identity) is a perfectly proper treatment that needs its own set of rights.
Do we see the fallacy here?
[New Hampshires Live Free or Die Spirit]
Now New Hampshires Live Gay or Die Spirit.
(a) there’s a severe mental illness sweeping the world
(b) the spirit of antichrist and early Strong Delusion is in play
I’m gonna go with (b) which results in (a). Just my $0.02.
Where do these people go when they realize their head is screwed up?
The GOP is Leftist Light.
I hope (but I’m not holding my breath) that the governor banned sex-change operations, too.
How about pro bono amateur gender reassignment? Is that still OK?
>>Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law on Friday a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors.
But you can surgically change the appearance of genitals and prescribe hormones of the opposite sex and encourage homosexual grooming...
We have quite a collection of imbeciles who "identify" as being on our side, but who obviously are not.
They are like Transparty Republicans.
