The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal to a California law banning therapists from trying to change a minor’s sexual orientation through conversion therapy, allowing the law to stand.

The decision leaves intact a federal appeals court decision upholding the state’s first-of-its-kind law, passed in 2012, Bloomberg reports.

The ban was challenged on “religious freedom” grounds, led by licensed therapist and minister Donald Welch.
This is good news for Connecticut as we try to pass a similar law banning Conversion Therapy for minors.
