Push to Ban 'Gay Conversion Therapy' in New Jersey (VIDEO)
"A day after the governor appeared to equivocate on the issue, a spokesman for Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., told the Newark Star-Ledger that he does not endorse a controversial practice known as "gay conversion therapy," which attempts to "convert" gay individuals to a straight lifestyle.
The spokesman did not indicate whether the governor's stated opposition to the practice would compel him to sign a bill, currently working its way through the New Jersey legislature, that would ban it."
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has a decision about banning gay conversion therapy in the state for minors. He's said he's opposed to it, but will he be compelled to sign the bill? Is the "therapy" actually "torture?" Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola (Host, TYT University), and Desi Doyen (Green News Report) discuss.
