PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTS TO END CONVERSION THERAPY FOR GAY AND TRANSGENDER YOUTH

“As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors.” This is a quote from the New York Times article, written today, about President Obama call to end conversion therapy for gay and transgender youth. What the President will do, is prevent conversion therapy at the state level, of course he cannot do anything at the national level because the GOP heads will explode on this not being constitutional and he has not “authority” to do such a thing. Nonetheless, this move illustrates that this President will go down in history as a great President because he understand that this is a human rights issue and no-one should have to go through “conversion”  therapy, a harsh treatment to change someone.
