Last week Friday, the Minister of Culture and Equality announced that a new law banning conversion therapy was delayed. Trettebergstuen pointed out that the delay is not too long and that the proposal may already be finished this summer. That is reported by Vart Land. The Minister had already drafted a bill that would make it illegal to attempt to ‘change’ one’s sexual orientation. She wanted a complete ban that also forbids therapies that people voluntarily choose to attend. However, her proposal led to much criticism during the consultation round. Several important bodies, including the Norwegian Attorney General, have pointed out that an extensive ban may violate human rights in cases adults consent to conversion therapy.
