Tasmania Should Learn from Alberta and not Preference Affirmation Treatment 

In recognition of the harm to vulnerable children and young people caused by outdated and unscientific affirmation therapy, the Premier of Canada’s Alberta Province, Danielle Smith MLA, has moved to ban it for children and restrain schools from socially transitioning children without parental consent. In her words, “Prematurely encouraging or enabling children to alter their very biology or natural growth, no matter how well-intentioned and sincere, poses a risk to that child’s future…”  

Tasmanian State Director of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL), Christopher Brohier, said “The Tasmanian Government should heed the steps being taken by Alberta and other nations and abandon any promotion of affirmation therapy.” 

Brohier continued, “For the Justice (Conversion Practices) Miscellaneous Amendment Bill 2024 to be passed, it must surely address all conversion practices, in particular the transition and sterilisation of vulnerable kids and young people by outdated and unscientific affirmation therapy. This practice will turn out to be the biggest medical scandal of this century. Tasmania must not allow its vulnerable kids to be harmed by it.” 

The ACL calls on the Tasmanian Government not to proceed with the Bill and instead to conduct a judicial inquiry into the care of our sex confused kids. They deserve no less.
