London, Oct. 8 (ANI): Channel 4’s Unreported World, an undercover documentary, reveals Chinese hospitals offering drug medications and painful electroshock therapy to cure homosexuality, despite the government in Beijing legalising homosexuality in 1997.
The documentary shows a doctor recommending electroshock therapy and doses of nausea-inducing drugs to convert a patient’s homosexual love to fear, the Guardian reports.
Hospitals continue to conduct “conversion therapy”, even after the landmark ruling of a Beijing court against Xinyu Piaoxiang clinic in south China, which gave electroshock and hypnosis “conversion” treatments. The clinic had to pay 3,500 yuan (360 pounds) as compensation and also had to publish an apology on its website. (ANI)
