Utah Finally Bans Conversion Therapy

After a lot of political upheaval over the past few years between religious and legal organizations, Utah has finally decided to ban conversion therapy. Known to be dangerous to those who undergo it especially because of its link to suicidality, conversion therapy has been banned in 19 states. Earlier in the year, we saw contention between lawmakers and the Church of Latter Day Saints, but the church has since come around to support the ban. The law is set to be published December 15th and to go into effect in January 2020.
