DES MOINES — A bill to ban “conversion therapy” failed last week in the Iowa legislature.

The bill, according to Des Moines ABC affliate KCRG, was Republican supported but failed to advance. It would have banned health professionals from trying to change children’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

Illinois banned “conversion therapy” in 2015.
