UK pushes to outlaw reparative therapy ahead of gay ‘marriage’ vote

Posted by Joseph on 20 February, 2013

LONDON, February 19, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – While pressure continues at the international level to prohibit psychotherapists from offering help to those wanting to overcome same-sex attraction, a Canadian therapist has told a British audience that such bans are “unethical.” A debate, billed as a discussion on the “legitimacy and freedom to offer sexual reorientation,” was held at Westminster in late January organized by Christian Concern and Core Issues Trust ahead of a debate in the House of Commons on the government’s “gay marriage” bill.

Dr. Joseph Berger, a consultant psychiatrist at the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Canada, and a practitioner of “change therapy,” attended the debate and said it “absolutely horrifies” him that some professional therapy organizations in Britain are attempting to prohibit therapists from offering it.

“There should be absolutely no ban on any such treatment. In fact, I consider it unethical to propose such bans,” Berger said.
