Parliament will consider a petition on including transgender people in a ‘conversion therapy’ ban for debate after it reached 100,000 signatures.
Support for the petition has skyrocketed over the last few days, finally reaching the threshold to be considered for a parliamentary discussion on 11 April.
It amassed more than 20,000 signatures on 10 April alone. The person who launched the petition, Sammantha Harris, condemned the “shameful” actions of the UK government. “It’s shameful that the UK intends to deliberately exclude trans people from a ban in contrast to the approach taken by many countries, despite trans people being at a greater risk of experiencing the harmful & degrading practices,” Harris wrote in the petition’s description. “The government’s own figures show that trans people are nearly twice as likely to be at risk of experiencing the harmful & degrading practices of conversion therapy.
