Governor says she'll sign Maine 'conversion therapy' ban

AUGUSTA — Maine’s governor said Thursday that she would sign a bill to ban so-called gay conversion therapy for minors that advanced in Maine’s House and Senate this week.

If the bill becomes law, Maine would join 16 states that have banned the practice, which aims to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

The Maine Senate on Thursday gave initial approval to the bill, which received a 91-46 vote in the House on Wednesday. The bill faces more votes in both chambers before it can head to Democratic Gov. Janet Mills’ desk.

Maine’s former Republican governor vetoed a similar measure last year, but the bill has gained momentum this year under a Democratic-led Legislature.

1. Hello from Winthrop, Maine, and please allow me to say...

...that I am very proud of Governor Mills. She somehow frequently finds ways to make me respect her even more.

RESIST!
