Conversion therapy is a controversial psychological or spiritual procedure that aims to change one’s sexual orientation status to that of being heterosexual. It has been discredited by mainstream medical and mental health organizations in North America and Europe for not only treating homosexuality as a disorder, but also being unethical and ineffective. Taiwan is currently contemplating prohibiting gay conversion therapy. If the measure passes, physicians who prescribe the treatment will be punished with fines as high as NT$100,000.
