Former home secretary and attorney general Suella Braverman has expressed worries about possible criminality in the event that transgender conversion therapy is outlawed.

Braverman voiced concern that if such therapy becomes illegal, teaching her kids that “a boy cannot be a girl” could result in criminal prosecution. Citing concerns about parents negotiating gender issues with their children, she encouraged MPs to oppose the prohibition. Braverman also demanded that under-18s not be allowed to transition.

In the LGBT conversion therapy issue, Labour MP Rosie Duffield advised against passing legislation based on what people are seeing on social media. Duffield underlined the need for strong laws while cautioning against the risks associated with “law created by social media.” She attacked the proposed legislation, saying it was unclear what it meant and could lead to more issues.

Labour backbencher Lloyd Russell-Moyle has introduced a bill that would make it illegal to engage in activities that alter one’s gender identity or sexual orientation. MPs, however, expressed worry over the Bill’s ambiguous language and possible effects on families and religious freedom.



Following the publication in the upcoming weeks of the Cass Review on gender identity services for children and young people, the Government intends to present its own ideas. Though time restrictions prevented Russell-Moyle’s draft legislation from moving further in the Commons, it still faces obstacles in becoming law as a Private Member’s Bill.
