A psychotherapist is trying to repeal Maryland “conversion therapies” ban

A psychotherapist has filed a lawsuit hoping to overturn the “conversion therapies” ban in Maryland.

Christopher Doyle says the ban violates his rights to free speech, the practice of religion, and the rights of clients “to prioritize their religious and moral values above unwanted same-sex sexual attractions, behaviors, or identities.”

He has therefore sued Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Attorney General Brian Frosh.

Doyle is represented by Liberty Counsel, a Christian group that hates LGBTQ people and opposes conversion therapy bans, abortion, and equal marriage.

Maryland became the 11th state to prohibit “reparative therapies” for LGBTQ minors in 2018.

I don’t think this lawsuit will succeed given the wave of “conversion therapies” bans taking place across the United States.
