American Medical Association position on reparative therapy and health care for the homosexual

The AMA:

opposes, the use of "reparative" or "conversion" therapy that is based upon the assumption that homosexuality
per se is a mental disorder or based upon the a priori assumption that the patient should change his/her homosexual orientation.

In other words, the AMA does not reject exgay therapy per se, but opposes therapists who equate homosexuality with sickness or who assume, regardless of the individual patient, that orientation should be changed.
