SB270 SD1, known as the “Conversion Therapy” bill, seeks to prohibit sexual orientation change efforts and regulate any state-licensed persons who provide professional counseling to minors under the age of 18. Licensed counselors would be prohibited from engaging in, seeking to engage in, or advertising the offering of sexual change efforts on persons under 18 years of age.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” -Proverbs 22:6
SB270 SD1 undermines parental authority and leaves the fate of Hawaii’s children in the hands of the State. Public schools indoctrinate students from a young age to accept alternative lifestyles and sexual orientations, yet this bill will not permit parents to seek professional help for their own children who could be confused and damaged by the messages and information sanctioned in public schools and by the mainstream media.
There is a battle raging for the hearts, minds, and lives of our children. Here’s what you can do to fight for Hawaii’s keiki:
