Turns out this was a little optimistic and the ban was ultimately rejected when it went up for a final vote.
The Minnesota House has taken a stand against conversion therapy, a practice used to try to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
Lawmakers voted 72-53 Thursday to include a statewide ban of the therapy on minors in a larger health and human services bill.
Under the measure, mental health professionals in Minnesota would be prohibited from engaging in conversion therapy with clients under age 18 or with vulnerable adults.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen!
