US court halts anti-gay ‘conversion’ law

A federal appeals court has put the brakes on a first-of-its-kind California law that bans therapy aimed at turning gay minors straight.

A three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency order on Friday, putting the law on hold until the court can hear full arguments on the measure’s constitutionality.

Clearly patients’ right to be protected from dangerous “treatments” are to be compared against the right to freedom of religion, or speech, or some such.
