Written by

A petition was launched to close clinics of torture for lesbians in Ecuador.

 

I had spoken about these private clinics in a previous article which you can find here : Clinics Torture Lesbians In Ecuador.

This petition by the Fundacion Causana, LGBT human rights organization, and a coalition of other Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender groups is addressed to the health minister, David Chiriboga.

According to the petition, escaping patients report cases of physical and psychological abuse including verbal threats, shackling, days without food, sexual abuse, and physical torture like Paula Ziritti.

For the moment, the petition collected more than 86,000 signatures, if you want to add yours to help lesbians of Ecuador, here the link :

30 clinics were already closed but it would seem that there remain approximately 200 "ex- gay clinics".
