"Canadian Doctors Billing The Government For ‘Curing’ Homosexuality"

Doctors in Alberta, Canada are still billing the province for treating homosexuality as a mental disorder “akin to bestiality and pedophilia, despite assurances from the former health minister in 2010 that the ‘incorrect and unacceptable classification’ would be removed immediately.” The billings are no longer part of the online version of the government’s diagnostic codes, but still exist and in 2010 “doctors billed the province for treating homosexuality as a mental disorder five times.”
