Greens slam PM's conversion therapy flip flop
Commenting on a double u-turn by Boris Johnson on a conversion 'therapy' ban south of the border, Scottish Greens equalities spokesperson Maggie Chapman MSP said:
“No amount of flip-flopping from a disgraced Prime Minister will hide the fact that the Tories are the antithesis of equality.
“The fact the Prime Minister, in his bumbling, explicitly excluded trans people from any crackdown on conversion practices is an absolute disgrace when trans people are even more likely to experience such abuse from their own family than other LGBTQI+ people.
“In Scotland, luckily, we have cross party support for a full ban on traumatising and degrading conversion practices, and with Greens in government we will get it done.”
