THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — It is as horrific as it sounds — underground “rehab  clinics” to torture and abuse lesbians into becoming straight. Physical, sexual and psychological abuse along with shackling and torture are some of the techniques used by these government-endorsed groups to “cure” lesbians from a “sickness.”

Women’s rights groups in Ecuador recently succeeded in convincing their government into reversing their stances and shut all the clinics, and reeducate the public about Ecuador’s incorrect previous stance on lesbianism.

Ecuadorian rights group Fundacion Causana spokesperson Karen Barba: “After years of campaigning about the practice of torture rehab clinics that claim to cure homosexuality, the Ecuadorian government has committed to deconstructing the belief that homosexuality is a sickness.”
