  1. All Immigration of Ukrainians should be stopped until the Intelligence Services screen each and every one of them to see who are Criminals . One Ukrainian Couple were stopped at the Border with Hungary with Twenty Two Million Euros in Cash . Ukraine was the most corrupt country before the War , and its Mafia worse than the Russian Mafia . Only 36 percent of the population got vaccinated . Russians are amongst the so called Refugees and Sweden will see a terrible surge in Crime like never before unless it sits up to face the fact that these people are not your average friend next door . SAPO screens everyone else , so why the Green Light to Ukrainians . Being White Europeans is not good enough Sweden .

Swedish political parties call for ban on conversion therapy

Multiple political parties in Sweden's parliament want to ban so-called conversion therapy, which aims to change young LGBT+ individuals’ sexual orientation.

Swedish political parties call for ban on conversion therapy

The Liberals have campaigned for a ban for some time, and a motion has now been submitted to parliament by the Social Democrats. Now, the Moderates and the Centre Party are joining them in calling for conversion therapy to be made illegal, Sweden’s public broadcaster Radio Ekot reports.

“The entire idea is that homosexuality is an illness which can and should be treated. That is, obviously, completely incorrect and a very out-of-place view in a modern society,” Centre’s spokesperson on legal issues, Johan Hedin, told the radio.

Conversion therapy consists of subjecting LGBT+ individuals to pressure or force to hide their sexuality or gender identity. According to MUCF, the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society, it occurs “to a not insignificant extent” in Sweden.

“We think there should be a ban. Sweden should be a tolerant country, where nonsense like this quite simply shouldn’t be allowed to happen,” Johan Forssell, the Moderate’s legal spokesperson told Radio Ekot.
