Maine closer to conversion therapy ban

Written by

AUGUSTA - Maine is one step closer to banning conversion therapy after the House of Representatives voted 91-46 Wednesday to pass a bill that would prohibit offering or administering it to anyone under 18.

Conversion therapy seeks to change an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity and has been banned in other states.

 

Now that it has passed in the House, the bill will soon go before the Maine Senate.
