"I wish this book did not exist, that state and federal law prohibited the horrible psychological, physical, and emotional abuse of conversion therapy.
Hopefully, this book will help to end these practices, once and for all."
Conversion therapy is the waterboarding of impressionable young minds, a sanctioned modern-day torture so ignorant of science and abusive in practice that in 2018 it continues to lay waste to the lives of millions around the world, nearly 700,000 in America alone. With their landmark book, Dear Congress, Vellah Jones and her "Children’s Committee" have done more than simply expose the politics and perversion behind this specious pseudoscience, and the predatory nature of its practitioners. It also reveals, bit by painful bit, the human toll suffered by its innocent victims, while simultaneously providing them the potent forum--and steely solidarity--to fight back and abolish this psychological brutality, once and for all.”
"I have been fortunate to write a number of books on difficult and challenging subjects, such as cancer, divorce, and the Holocaust. Conversion therapy is a subject that has been long overlooked in this country, and I hope this book will change that. It’s really up to you to make that happen. Thank you for your kind attention."
