China must ban abusive gay ‘conversion therapy,’ rights group says

Hong Kong China Conversion Therapy
Human Rights Watch launched its new report, “‘Have You Considered Your Parents’ Happiness?’: Conversion Therapy Against LGBT People in China,” on Wednesday. The report examines how parents threatened, coerced, and sometimes physically forced their adult and adolescent LGBT children to submit to conversion therapy.

Hospitals and other medical facilities in China are subjecting LGBT people to ‘conversion therapy’ that in some cases has involved electroshock, involuntary confinement and forced medication, a human rights group says.
