by Jeremy Hooper


The Oregon legislature has passed a bill banning the misguided and discredited snake oil we colloquially call "reparative therapy":

Salem, Oregon, May 7, 2015)—Today, the Oregon State Senate passed HB 2307, a bill that will protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth from the dangerous and discredited practice of conversion therapy. The bill was overwhelmingly approved by the State House on March 17 and is now heading to the desk of Governor Kate Brown who is expected to sign it into law.

Governor Kate Brown is expected to sign, joining a bipartisan group of governors who have signed similar laws in NJ, CA, and the nation's capital. The anti-gay movement is expected to go apesh*t because they adore junk science when it helps them justify their "love the sin, hate the sinner" agenda.
