Ban conversion therapy

Conversion therapy is abhorrent, unethical, harmful and has no place in Scotland.

I completely support the campaign to ban conversion therapy in all forms.

The SNP opposes LGBTI conversion therapy practices, which are discriminatory and proven to have a harmful effect on the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTI people.

The Scottish Government has committed to introducing legislation by the end of 2023 which will end conversion practices as comprehensively as possible within devolved powers.

SNP MPs will continue to press the UK government to reform laws and regulations, which are reserved to Westminster, to ban and prevent the practice of LGBTI conversion therapy.
