Re: “'Gay Conversion Therapy' Banned for California Minors

Here is Pacific Justice Institute's Official Press Release:

It’s Official: Gov. Brown Signs Gay Therapy Ban; PJI Filing Suit
September 30, 2012

Sacramento, CA – Over the weekend, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a controversial ban on counseling and therapy for youth that is not affirming of same-sex attraction.

Pacific Justice Institute has led the fight against SB 1172 since its introduction in the spring by Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance). PJI attorneys attended all of the bill’s policy committee hearings and warned legislators that it was an unconstitutional restriction on the First Amendment, privacy, and parental rights. PJI attorneys anticipated yesterday’s enactment of the bill and will be filing a federal lawsuit on Monday, October 1, in Sacramento.

“Of all the freedom-killing bills we have seen in our legislature the last several years, this is among the worst,” said Brad Dacus president of PJI. “This outrageous bill makes no exceptions for young victims of sexual abuse who are plagued with unwanted same-sex attraction, nor does it respect the consciences of mental health professionals who work in a church. We are filing suit to defend families, children, and religious freedom. This unprecedented bill is outrageously unconstitutional.”

PJI’s lawsuit will seek an injunction to prevent implementation of the law on Jan. 1.
