A New Jersey couple is suing Governor Christie over the ban on gay conversion therapy.

Christie signed the bill three months ago.

It prevents licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight.

The couple argues that their 15-year-old son doesn’t want to be gay and needs this therapy.

They say the law violates their constitutional right to free speech and free exercise of religion.
