Why Justice Scalia’s Ties To The Gay Conversion Therapy Movement Matter

Jessica Mason Pielko writes for RH Reality Check: “Much like crisis pregnancy centers, groups that promote ‘pray away the gay’ therapies rely on equal parts psuedo-science and deep moral hostility for those ‘patients’ they aim to treat. So it should concern us that, in a matter of months, when the Supreme Court hears arguments in two landmark cases that will define the extent to which our laws recognize, respect, and protect marriages one of the sitting justices who will hear those arguments has close ties to the conversion movement.”
