The “Conversion Practices Ban Bill” is not good legislation, but it is a lot better than the proposals that came from Alex Greenwich or the Government Taskforce last year (you can read more here).

While we are very disappointed by what was not fixed, we can thank our politicians for what they have done, and we can let them know what we want them to do next.

  • Thank Labor MPs for negotiating in good faith with faith leaders
  • Thank them for creating protections for faith, families and medical professionals
  • Point out our disapointment that our requests to clarify those protections were not acted on 
  • Ask them to make the protections clearer, and to ensure that all their promises are kept as the law is implemented. 
  • Ask them to protect religious freedom as other laws come up, including the “Equality” bill

Dear MP not found,
or Dear MP not found,

Thank you for taking into account religious freedom while drafting the Conversion Practices Bill. The exemptions for parents, faith communities, and medical professionals are appreciated. It is important for many in the community that their values and beliefs are respected, and seeing the government address these concerns through the bill was reassuring. Also, the willingness to engage in genuine negotiations with faith leaders during the process was commendable, and many have expressed their gratitude for these efforts.

While I am thankful for the protections that have been included, I wish the language in the bill had been clearer on these matters. This clarity would help people understand how the bill will impact them. I want to ask for your help to ensure that, as the bill is implemented, religious freedom will not be negatively affected. It's important that the legislation works as intended without causing unintended consequences for religious groups. And, I want to express my appreciation for your dedication to representing and looking after our electorate's interests. Your commitment to your role and the well-being of our community does not go unnoticed.
