Jewish therapist Sues New York City for Censoring Treatment of Unwanted Gay Attraction

An Orthodox Jewish psychotherapist is suing New York City over its ban on counseling to treat unwanted homosexual attraction or gender confusion, arguing that the law violates the First Amendment’s guaranteed right to free speech.  A 2018 law prohibits paid services that “seek to change a person’s sexual orientation or seek to change a person’s gender identity to conform to the sex of such individual that was recorded at birth.”  ADF says Schwartz has served numerous patients who came to him seeking the ability to experience heterosexual attraction in order to have families that conform to their religious beliefs. “It is difficult to imagine a more direct violation of freedom of speech protected by the First Amendment than New York City’s attempt to regulate the private sessions between an adult and his counselor.”  Read more: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/jewish-therapist-sues-new-york-city-for-censoring-treatment-of-unwanted-gay
