I agree. The rule change is a positive step. It is not perfect but it is good and good is enough.

The new rule went into effect yesterday.

"This measure will truly save lives"

Utah is only the 19th state to ban the practice. Even as I feel that the new rule could have been stronger, it is sobering to think that a majority of states don't have any sort of restrictions in place against "so called conversion therapy."

This is a great example of compromise in order to provide good governance and it should be celebrated.
