From the Huffington Post:

A Southern California college student who claims he reversed his own homosexuality with reparative therapy has filed a lawsuit against California for its ban on "gay cures."

Aaron Blitzer, of Culver City, is studying to be an ex-gay therapist and says, along with two other co-plaintiff therapists, that the ban prevents them from doing their job and infringes on their rights to free speech, privacy and freedom of religion, Gay Star News reports.    …

The lawsuit is led by Christian legal group the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI). The plaintiffs and ban’s critics say that the law ignores young people who have same-sex attractions as a result of being victims of sexual abuse.

Response: Good news. This legislation would probably be duplicated in other states if allowed to go unchallenged. The ban is far too vague and destined to cause all sorts of legal problems for counselors that address homosexuality in any way to minors. It is a matter of freedom on a number of different levels.
