Excerpt from the Liberty Counsel: “San Francisco, CA – Today, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the California ban on change therapy (SB 1172) from going into effect when it granted an injunction pending the appeal in Pickup v. Brown. The law was scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2013, and would have banned any counseling to minors seeking to diminish or eliminate unwanted same-sex sexual attractions, behavior or identity.”

… “’Without this emergency injunction, the State of California would essentially barge into the private therapy rooms of victimized young people and tell them that their confusion caused by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky abuser is normal and they should pursue their unwanted same-sex sexual attractions and behavior,’ Staver continued.”
