Conversion Therapy Ban Advances
On Tuesday, November 26, the Governor announced that a plan has been developed that will prohibit conversion therapy for minors throughout the State. You may recall that I sponsored a bill in the 2019 session to accomplish the same. My 2019 bill did not pass during the Session. However, after much discussion between the stakeholders throughout the State, the Proposed Rule to prohibit conversion therapy will essentially track the language of my bill.
I am sooooo thrilled with this development. We are well on our way to banning conversion therapy for minors in Utah once and for all. Thanks so much to the Governor, and to the many stakeholders who came together to support this proposal.
