Protester with Ex-gay is a hoax signBY STEVE WILLIAMS

A English lawmaker has introduced a bill to ban ex-gay therapy throughout the UK.

Geraint Davies, Labour MP for Swansea West, has proposed a private members bill called the Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill. The legislation, which has cross-party backing, will call for closer regulation of psychotherapy, formally state that ex-gay therapy is not an appropriate treatment for distress surrounding sexual orientation, and call for therapists who try to push ex-gay therapy to be banned from practicing.
