'A deceptive practice': Seanad passes bill to ban LGBTQ conversion therapiesThe Prohibition of Conversion Therapies Bill 2018 would make it illegal for any person to perform or offer to perform conversion therapy on a person. It would also make it illegal to advertise conversion therapy. A person could be fined up to 5,000 and/or imprisoned for up to six months for either of these.
It would also make it unlawful for a person to remove a person from the State for conversion therapy. A person could be fined up to 10,000 and/or imprisoned for up to 12 months for this.
Having seen documentaries about the practices used in these so called "conversion centres" this is a worthwhile bill.
