Texas reparative therapy: Republicans want new therapy to turn gays straight

In Texas Republicans are pushing a new kind of reparative therapy that would try to turn gay people into straight people. On Sunday, CNN shared about this new therapy and how a lot of people are not okay with the idea of it at all. About 10,000 people joined together to talk about and vote on this platform. It was at the Texas GOP Convention.

California and New Jersey have both already banned this kind of therapy for minors already. It is said to help turn gays straight but of course not everyone supports this kind of behavior. The Republicans in Texas said, "We recognize the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle. No laws or executive orders shall be imposed to limit or restrict access to this type of therapy."

Cathie Adams, president of the conservative Texas Eagle Forum, supports it all and is speaking out. She said that she doesn't believe that gay people are actually born gay. If Texas does start this kind of treatment it would not be forced upon people but would be a choice. It would not be mandatory but that doesn't mean that it could not be forced upon people by family members and others that think it is a good idea.
