Conversion therapy needs to be available to all homosexuals who want to become normal, decent people.

There many ex-gays who were once miserable, disgusting homosexuals but through conversion therapy changed and are now living as normal, decent productive members of society.

"forced to sit in an ice bath while Bible verses were read out to her"

I don't see why the little children turning straight is so discouraged but turning gay is strongly encouraged in school and in popular culture.

So your definition of "conversion therapy" is what happened to that woman in Australia....being forced to sit in an ice bath while being read bible verses? LOL! Never heard anything so absurd in my life.

There is no such thing as "conversion therapy" because sexual orientation cannot be changed. This world would be a far better place if people were accepted for who they are.
