WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday President Obama’s Senior Adviser and long-time friend Mrs. Valerie Bowman-Jarrett responded to the Leelah Alcorn Conversion Therapy petition.
Alcorn was the 17-year-old transgender high school student who committed suicide after her parents forced her into this barbaric CON version therapy. Bowman-Jarrett said in part:
“The overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrates that conversion therapy, especially when it is practiced on young people, is neither medically nor ethically appropriate and can cause substantial harm .. As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this Administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors..”
In the interests of full disclosure I not only signed the Leelah Alcorn petition I shared it on my social media proudly. In my opinion no human being should be subjected to such an arcane and be nine therapy. Ever.
