A Colorado Senate committee has killed a bill that would have banned gay conversion therapy for minors
The bill had been sponsored by Rep. Paul Rosenthal (D-Denver) and Rep. Dominick Moreno (D-Commerce City).
Following the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee vote, Rosenthal said:
“I think it’s shameful what the Senate Republicans have done. The bill was designed to protect children from a harmful practice that is not based in science. Maybe in the next nine months until the next session they will reconsider their decision."
Yesterday, President Obama announced his support for a "We the People" petition urging the government to "Enact Leelah's Law to Ban All LGBTQ+ Conversion Therapy" after it reached more than 120,000 signatures.
