It’s unbelievable that this is allowed to happen in this country. It’s despicable. Cruel. Inhuman. Disgusting. Abusive. And just plain WRONG. So so thankful for Jeremy and his mother. True family who are willing to help.
If you wish to donate to help #SaveSarah, this is their GoFundMe page.
Internet users around the world are rallying online to help a 17-year-old Texas teen named Sarah, whose parents sent her to an East Texas Christian boarding facility to “pray away the gay,” according to a GoFundMe campaign run by her cousin Jeremy.
I ❤ Anderson Cooper! I can't believe there are idiots who subscribe to this bullshit.
Anderson Cooper battle Texas state representative Bryan Hughes on Wednesday night over his support for gay conversion therapy programs.
The Texas Republican party recently voted to endorse “reparative therapy” in their platform, which now says that “no laws or executive orders shall be imposed to limit or restrict access to this type of therapy.”
Cooper hosted Hughes for Wednesday’s “Keeping Them Honest” segment, and asked him to respond to medical professionals who have said that conversion therapy is harmful to kids.
Hughes said there is medical literature for both sides of the issue, but Cooper quickly challenged that idea and ticked off organization after organization of doctors who oppose conversion therapy.
