Bill C-4, the ban on so-called Conversation Therapy, passed with the unanimous support of all parties in the House of Commons.
But it didn’t just ban therapy for children and adults confused about their sexual orientation – the bill also applies to children and adults suffering gender dysphoria and considering going through the irreversible medical procedure of transitioning genders.
On today’s episode of the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by sex neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh. Soh says that Canada is going in the opposite direction of other Western liberal democracies who have mandated psychotherapy before transitioning and banned dangerous puberty-blocking drugs to those under 18.
She says that clinical therapy is essential for children suffering from gender dysphoria, and banning it is cruel and anti-science.
