The Supreme Court declined to hear a case on whether state and local governments can enforce laws banning conversion therapy for LGBTQ+ children, despite dissent from three conservative justices.

The case involved Washington’s law, which was upheld, and the striking down of similar bans in Florida.

Efforts to limit LGBTQ+ kids’ rights have spread across the country, with about half the states prohibiting conversion therapy.

The case involved a family counselor in Washington, Brian Tingley, who sued over a state law threatening therapists who engage in conversion therapy with a loss of their license.

Justice Clarence Thomas wishes they would have taken on the case because “licensed counselors cannot voice anything other than the state-approved opinion on minors with gender dysphoria without facing punishment.”
