This is the first of three parts of an investigative series into reparative/conversion therapy.
As states consider banning reparative/conversion therapy, more questions are being asked about what exactly this practice is and what it involves. The Christian Post spoke with Chris Doyle, a psychotherapist and the director of the International Healing Foundation, who was able to explain what reparative/conversion therapy is and whether or not it's biblically based.
CP previously spoke with self-described former homosexual McKrae Game, who now leads a successful ministry geared toward those struggling with same-sex attraction. Game offered his testimony and experience that led to his being married to a woman and having two children. more >>
British members of parliament have voted in favor of a bill that paves the way for the creation of "three-parent" babies with the DNA from two women and one man, aimed at tackling genetic diseases. The approval comes despite concerns from the Church of England.
BBC News reported that 382 MPs in the House of Commons voted in favor of the bill, and 128 were against. While a vote at the House of Lords is also needed to take place before the bill becomes law, proponents said they expect it to pass, with the first babies from this process being born in 2016.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said that the idea is to allow parents with genetic diseases to give birth to healthy infants. more >>

The Brown family of TLC's "Sister Wives" has gone through a serious change after patriarch Kody divorced his first wife in order to marry his fourth.
Kody and first-wife Meri, his only legal wife, made the decision to divorce so that Kody could marry his fourth spiritual wife, Robyn. Meri and Kody jointly filed for divorce, which was finalized on Sept. 25, 2014. Kody then married Robyn, whom he wed in a spiritual ceremony just three months later, making their marriage the legal one. It's believed that all this was done so that Robyn's three children from a previous marriage would have legal standing and insurance, as well as stability within the legal system.
"We have chosen to legally restructure our family," the family said in a statement to ET. "We made this decision together as a family. We are grateful to our family, friends and fans for all their love and support." more >>
The surrogate paid by TV personality Sherri Shepherd and her estranged husband Lamar Sally to carry their baby wants her story to act as a warning to others.
Jessica Bartholomew, a 23-year-old waitress, recently spoke out against Shepherd, 47, in an interview with Sally, 43. The single mom was reportedly paid $30,000 by the estranged couple to be their gestational surrogate and conceive a baby using Sally's sperm but not Shepherd's egg, but when she was six months pregnant the pair split and, subsequently, the former "The View" cohost changed her mind about the baby.
"I don't want this to happen again to any other woman because what happened gives surrogacy a bad name and it's not a bad thing," Bartholomew told Inside Edition. "We give families gift of life. I can't wait for it to all be over." more >>
