A United Kingdom government official contends that the government’s proposed ban on “conversion therapy,” once written up, will provide conscience protections for religious groups and parents who hold traditional views on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Equalities Minister Kemi Badenoch wrote a letter last Wednesday to members of Parliament outlining the government’s proposal in the House of Commons Tuesday, which is slated to culminate in a bill published in full later this year. A copy of the minister’s letter was emailed to The Christian Post.
Badenoch stated that the government intends to craft a bill that balances both protections for LGBT youth and respects the rights of religious beliefs and parents.
“Undertaking pre-legislative scrutiny on this legislation will ensure that the final legislation does not cause unintended consequences, is robust and receives appropriate scrutiny,” wrote Badenoch.
