Gov. Brown: Protect Kids From Anti-Gay "Therapy"
UPDATE We did it! After tremendous advocacy by supporters of equality, including over 32,000 All Out members, on Saturday, September 29, Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1172 into law. This act made California the first US state to ban dangerous gay "cures" for youth. After signing, the Governor tweeted, "These practices have no basis in science or medicine, and they will now be relegated to the dustbin of quackery."
All Out members will continue to lead the charge to stand up to anti-gay groups trying to export 'pray away the gay' as a legitimate medical treatment worldwide. Speak up now >>
Update on August 30The Senate just passed SB 1172 and now goes to Jerry Brown's office for his signature! It's all on the Governor right now and we need to show him more than ever that enacting this bill is the right thing to do!. Sign now!
Originally published on August 28The California Assembly just passed a groundbreaking ban on the use of dangerous anti-gay religious indoctrination meant to "cure" homosexuality. But to become law, Governor Brown still needs to sign the bill.
Extremist religious groups are pushing back hard. We need you to go All Out and tell the Governor to protect young people in the next 72 hours!
TO GOVERNOR BROWN:
The medical community has overwhelmingly denounced so-called "gay conversion therapies" as harmful, particularly to vulnerable minors. By signing SB 1172 into law, you will protect thousands of young people in California from this kind of abuse – Enact the ban now.
