Current Minnesota law provides Medical Assistance funding for sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE, also referred to as “reparative therapy” or “conversion therapy”)
Bill SF 1854 defines SOCE as any practice that is “intended to change an individual’s sexual orientation, or intended to discourage a transition from one gender to another.”
SF 1854, authored by John Marty, would prohibit the practice of SOCE on children under age 18 and vulnerable adults. It would also prohibit medical assistance funding of SOCE.
This bill is currently in the Senate’s Health and Human Services Finance and Policy Committee, so let’s email Committee Chair Michelle R. Benson (31, R) and encourage her to have a committee hearing on this bill.
Hello Senator Benson,
