Utah State Senator Derek Kitchen Applauds Utah Conversion Therapy Ban

November 27, 2019

Utah State Senator Derek L. Kitchen issued the following statement in response to Governor Gary R. Herbert’s decision to enact a rule banning the practice of so-called “conversion therapy” in Utah:


This is a great moment for the safety and wellbeing of Utah’s LGBTQ+ youth. I am grateful to the countless Utahns who have written and spoken out in favor of banning conversion therapy. Governor Herbert’s action will protect Utah’s LGBTQ+ community from a dangerous and cruel practice rejected by all mainstream medical and mental heath organization in the United States. I look forward to the day when conversion therapy is banned nationwide.
