SB 1172, the bill to ban all forms of SOCE for minors, has passed both California houses
SB 1172, the bill to ban all forms of SOCE for minors, has passed both California houses (last night) and is in process of being sent to Governor Jerry Brown for his consideration. He now has until September 31st to sign it into law or veto it. NARTH and our legal allies are assuming that the bill be signed into law and we are now prepared to challenge the legislation in court.
NARTH has signed a representation agreement with Liberty Council, an outstanding legal organization under the direction of our good friend Mat Staver – the Dean of Liberty University Law School, to seek a temporary injunction against SB 1172. Dean Staver is a featured speaker at this year’s NARTH Conference in Orlando and we look forward to his personal assessment of this dangerous trend toward limiting the right of families to seek mental health care for some aspects of their children’s lives.
This week a New Jersey legislator said in a local newspaper article that he will introduce similar legislation in New Jersey.
“Assemblyman Timothy Eustace, (D-38), Paramus, announced Thursday his plans to introduce a bill that would ban the so-called conversion therapy aimed at reversing homosexuality,” reported the Morning News Digest of the PolitickerNJ.
