Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – On Saturday September 29, 2012,  Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law  Senate Bill 1172 which bans counseling and therapy for youth that is not affirming of same-sex attraction.

Challenges associated with California's gay history mandates 

Promoters of the  lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) LGBT lifestyle characterize it as " a historic bill that will protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) minors from "reparative" therapies administered by mental health professionals aimed at altering sexual orientation or gender identities and expressions."

On the other side of the ledger, the  Pacific Justice Institute, which has led the fight against SB 1172 since its introduction in the spring, deployed its  attorneys to attende all of the bill’s policy committee hearings and warned legislators that it was an unconstitutional restriction on the First Amendment, privacy, and parental rights.

As Bill Clinton might say, its a simple math problem: Brown+ a far left legislature =  SB 1172

Given the political climate, PJI attorneys anticipated Saturday's enactment of the bill and stated it will be filing a federal lawsuit today, October 1, in Sacramento.

“Of all the freedom-killing bills we have seen in our legislature the last several years, this is among the worst,” said Brad Dacus president of PJI. “This outrageous bill makes no exceptions for young victims of sexual abuse who are plagued with unwanted same-sex attraction, nor does it respect the consciences of mental health professionals who work in a church. We are filing suit to defend families, children, and religious freedom. This unprecedented bill is outrageously unconstitutional.”

PJI’s lawsuit will seek an injunction to prevent implementation of the law on Jan. 1.
