@AOC And ban conversion therapy for use against autistic people, where it's called ABA and the US government sponsors it across the entire country. #ABAisAbuse #CRPD #DisabilityRights
@AOC Conversion therapy was turned mainstream first against gay people and then against vulnerable autistic children by Ivar Lovaas. There is still a nationwide multimillion dollar abuse industry sponsored by the US government, based on his work, and autistic people are the victims.
@AOC Here is an institution in Massachusetts where conversion therapy (also called ABA) is conducted in a manner close to Lovaas' original form: with electric shocks. The victims are disabled children.

@AOC Complicit in the promotion of conversion therapy (ABA) is Autism Speaks, a large organisation with a dubious history of poorly spent funds, founded by ardent Trump supporter Bob Wright and his wife Suzanne.
