Federal Appeals Court Upholds SB 1172

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Aug. 29, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld California Senate Bill 1172, which prohibits efforts designed to change a young person’s sexual orientation or gender expression.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill into law this past year.

Efforts to change sexual orientation or gender expression have been debunked as junk science, and have also been proven harmful to children and adults.  All major medical and mental health organizations have denounced the practice including: the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American School Counselor Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Psychoanalytic Association, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the Pan American Health Organization.
