Calls Needed to Stop Therapy Ban

By | Missouri | No Comments

Time-sensitive – calls needed by Friday, December 6.

The City of St. Louis is considering passing a ban on therapy for a minor who is not comfortable with same-sex attraction or has gender identity issues.

Here are the facts:

  • BB152 has been filed by St. Louis Alderwoman, Christine Ingrassia.
  • BB152 prohibits medical and mental healthcare providers from providing “conversion therapy,” also known as reparative therapy, ex-gay therapy, or sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts to a minor.
  • BB152 was heard in the Health and Human Services Committee on Wednesday, November 13, where several spoke in support and opposition of the bill. The committee unanimously voted that same morning to pass it out of committee and onto the full Board of Aldermen.
  • BB152 could be brought up for perfection and final vote in the regular Friday meeting of the full Board of Aldermen on Friday, December 6.

Immediate Action Needed
Please contact the members of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen (see list below) regarding the proposed ban on “conversion reparative” therapy for minors in the city of St. Louis. Ask them to vote no on BB152. Please be kind and respectful in your correspondence.

Please pass this information on to others you know who would be interested in this issue.

Thank you.
