Opposes same sex marriage, joining Republicans who voted to protect conversion therapy. Conversion therapy allows parents to force their gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender children to go to an unlicensed and untrained therapist to try to make their children be straight. Methods include forced prayer, solitary confinement, forced interactions with the opposite sex and even electroshock therapy. Doctors say this therapy doesn’t work and in fact causes long term damage to the victims.
