Missouri city first in state to ban conversion therapy

News

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Columbia, Missouri’s city council approved a ban on conversion therapy for minors.

The votes were cast unanimously last night in favor of banning organizations that use various forms of therapy to convert the sexuality of LGBTQ people to heterosexuality.

This practice has been scientifically discredited and Missouri has no state-wide legislation on these kinds of therapy.
