Huntington City Council Committee Moves Forward With Conversion Therapy Ban | New

HUNTINGTON — If passed at a future Huntington City Council meeting, conversion therapy for minors could be illegal in Huntington.

An ordinance banning the practice, discredited by major medical and mental health organizations, is making its way into meetings. Council Chair Holly Smith Mount said she introduced the order after attending a Fairness West Virginia meeting.
