Mean British Doctors Want to End the Conversion Therapy Party

Is Britain about to join Spain in cracking down on reparative therapy clinics? Yesterday’s meeting of the British Medical Association saw two-thirds of its member doctors vote to declare ex-gay programs harmful — and recommend authorities should investigate claims of conversion therapy clinics funded by the government’s National Health Service.

But does the vote also mean one-third of Britain’s doctors have no problem with conversion therapy? Some doctors speaking to reporters say it’s still not 100 percent certain that ex-gay treatments cannot work or are even harmful — though reporter Patrick Strudwick would certainly beg to differ.
