California Governor Jerry Brown Still Hasn't Signed Bill That Would Ban 'Ex-Gay' Therapy for Minors
A bill which was passed on August 30 that would ban harmful "ex-gay" therapy for minors has been sitting on Governor Jerry Brown's desk since then, and he has until midnight on Sunday to sign it.
The Courage Campaign writes:
At any moment, Gov. Brown will make a decision on SB 1172. It's a bill, sponsored by Sen. Ted Lieu, that would end psychological abuse of minors in California by preventing ex-gay "therapy" from being performed on them by deceitful mental health professionals -- the kind of therapy that can lead to alienation, depression, and LGBT kids taking their own lives.
Gov. Brown is under pressure from conservative, anti-gay organizations to veto the bill in an election year -- and he needs to hear from YOU. He has until Sept. 30th to sign SB 1172, he could sign or veto the bill today.
