Ohio: Toledo Bans So-Called "Conversion Therapy"
By a unanimous vote, the Toledo City Council has approved a ban on so-called "conversion" or "ex-gay" therapy within the city limits, AND added gender identity to it's list of protected classes.
According to the Toledo Blade, the proposed legislation, which states “no mental health provider shall engage in sexual orientation or gender identity change efforts with any person,” would make it a misdemeanor of the fourth degree to provide the therapy. Each day in violation would be a separate offense — each with a maximum fine of $250.
