Judge Blocks California Ban on Gay Conversion Therapy

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — California has been blocked from enforcing a new ban on therapy that seeks to change the sexual orientation of minors from gay to straight.

A federal judge ruled that the law may inhibit the first amendment rights of therapists who oppose homosexuality.

The judge signed a temporary injunction that prohibits the state from enforcing the ban.

The judge also found fault with the evidence cited by proponents of the law that conversion therapy puts patients at risk of suicide.

He wrote in his ruling that it is “based on questionable and scientifically incomplete studies that may not have included minors.”

The law had been set to take effect next month.
