counseling therapy sessionIn a relentless pursuit to ban sexual orientation conversion therapy, radical lawmakers in Massachusetts have once again put forth legislation that would make such therapy illegal.

Rep. Kay Khan's proposal would ban state-licensed health care providers from counseling minors struggling with same-sex attraction or gender confusion.

Andrew Beckwith of the Massachusetts Family Institute says parental rights would seriously be violated if this is passed.

"This is actually a direct assault on the rights of parents to bring up their children,” he argues, “and would seek to put a gag on therapists and parents who are trying to lead their children away from homosexual behavior or gender-identity surgeries and hormones."

Beckwith says parents who resist subjecting their children to sex-change hormones or surgery could be found guilty of child abuse if this bill becomes law.

"The tragic irony here is that the bill would statutorily describe talk-therapy --- counseling --- as child abuse,” he warns, “and thereby leave the parents with no alternative other than the mutilation and hormonal injection of their own children, which is child abuse.'

Under this law, Beckwith says parents could actually have their children taken away by the state.
