Ozanne motion seeks to label as 'unethical' therapy to change sexual orientation

Ozanne motion seeks to label as 'unethical' therapy to change sexual orientation
- THE General Synod is being urged to condemn conversion therapy as “unethical and harmful” by a member who says that undergoing it led her into depression and a breakdown.
In a private member’s motion, Jayne Ozanne, an Evangelical from the diocese of Oxford, is asking the Synod to endorse a statement, signed this year by professional bodies, that conversion therapy “has no place in the modern world. It is unethical and harmful and not supported by evidence.”
The therapy, it says, assumes that “certain sexual orientations or gender identities are inferior to others, and seeks to change or suppress them on that basis”.
Signatories include the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Royal College of General Practitioners. Ms Ozanne is calling on the Archbishop’ Council to join them “on behalf of the Church of England”.
