LONDON — England’s Health Minister Norman Lamb says gay conversion therapy is “abhorrent and has no place in modern society,” the Guardian reports.

“It is based on the completely false premise that there is something wrong with you if you happen to be gay,” Lamb, the minister for care and support, was quoted as having said by the Guardian. “I certainly want to do what I can, as a liberal Democrat, to eradicate this.”

Lamb spoke to the Guardian as 15 cross-party MPs (members of Parliament) wrote to him demanding tougher measures, including consideration of a ban on gay conversion therapy.
