(CNSNews.com) - Conservative pro-family groups in California are making preparations to challenge what they call a dangerous bill banning "reparative therapy" for teens that is on a fast track through the California State Senate.
California Senate Bill 1172 would make it illegal for therapists, psychologists, counselors and parents to engage in any kind of sexual orientation change efforts against children 18 and younger.
Violators could be subject to arrest, fines, possible jail time.
The bill, which passed out of a legislative committee Tuesday on a 5-3 vote, would also require adults to sign a consent form before they could seek therapy or counseling to change their sexual orientation.
Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute of Sacramento, Calif., pledges to challenge the constitutionality of the measure in the courts, if it passes the Legislature.
This legislation is a grotesque violation of the rights of parents over their children, said Dacus, who testified against the bill Tuesday.
He said the bill, which targets reparative therapy, could also lead to parents losing custody of their children to the state if they seek therapy for their youngsters.
It specifically prohibits any child under the age of 18 who struggles with homosexuality from getting any kind of professional counseling at all, period, Dacus told CNSNews.com.
In fact, it also subjects parents to possibly having their children permanently removed from them if it is found that the parents were not accepting of a childs perception of being homosexual and the parents want the child to get counseling.
If the parents are not totally accepting of this sexual orientation, then that is deemed abuse and gives the government grounds to permanently take the child from the parents.

California is a lost cause. This is thought control, bigger than Dallas
Next step will be mandatory counseling to become homosexual.
Is this all the homosexual politicians in Cauliphonya can find to do? Their economy and budget must be squared away.
Plus they’re teaching kids in public schools how to have “safe” oral and anal penetratve sex, since “they’re gonna do it anyway.”
Your children do not belong to you. Don’t you know that? They belong to the state. One of these days, after children are born and reach a certain age, you’ll have to turn them over to the state. Didn’t this happen in Germany some time back?
This is why rebellion is growing folks.
That’s what I always say to myself when I see any news with California. It’s lost. There has to be a tipping point where the whole state goes down in flames.
When you approach California, there should be signs: "YOU ARE LEAVING THE UNITED STATES, PLEASE HAVE YOUR PASSPORT READY."
Wonder how many of these are kids who are being raised by queer "parents"?
Naw... THAT particular problem is still years away.
I fully expect the socialists and third worlders running this state to ban free speech outright.
You've heard of La Reconquista and the Atzlan movement? Certain fringe groups in Mexico want to retake a lot of the Southwest US and 'repatriate' it back into Mexico.
Sh*t, dawg, I say let them have California. Maybe THEY can make the place liveable and sane again.
and not fast enough.
It’s a guarentee.
I carpool with a guy that is a liberal (calls himself a moderate/independant, but He isn’t) and He will defend California to the death. Thinks it’s the greatest thing ever. I’ve stopped talking to him about political stuff. It’s not worth it.
But it will come down the road.
Show him this one. Stress the fact that PARENTS would be locked up for Felony Parenting.
It appears the comfort zone has not yet been breached, and their stranglehold is getting more firm daily.
"This is why rebellion is growing folks."
(And I think it's things like this that we need to show to those rational-minded people out there who still haven't woken up).
