The following was collected from statements made by the National Association of Research and Therapy of Homosexuality.

Senate Bill 1172 introduced by openly gay Senator Ted Lieu, was reviewed at a hearing in Sacramento on Monday The vote was made to send the bill to the next step, the Judiciary Committee. The vote was 5 to 3 in favor of sending it on. This bill introduced in the California legislature that would threaten the right of individuals with unwanted homosexual attractions to receive therapy. For many years gay activists have been trying to convince the public that homosexual attractions cannot be changed. Since the evidence proves otherwise, they then moved on to trying to convince us that change therapies are "dangerous", but once again even the American Psychological Association agrees that no such evidence is available. Now in what is apparently a move of desperation they are trying to accomplish through fines and sanctions aimed directly at individual clients and their therapists what they could not accomplish through misinformation. If you want to read the legislation for yourself complete information about the bill can be found by clicking: http://sacramento.networkofcare.org/mh/legislate/state-bill-detail.aspx?bill=SB%201172&sessionid=2011000 While this is a direct assault on everyone's freedom it is also a not so subtle attack on religious liberty. Individuals of faith often seeking to live lives congruent with their religious convictions are often motivated to seek help for their homosexual attractions. This type of legislation would in effect criminalize those formerly ethical relationships between a client and their therapist unless those interactions were supervised by agents of the state.

We the undersigned wish to stop California SB1172 in order to protect our religious and parental rights and our rights as human beings to determine our own course of treatment in the matter of unwanted homosexuality and the right to determine our own future.
