 2counseling and medical services to all minors who are victims of sexualassault in the County of San Francisco.2.
 
 As set forth more fully in the attached brief, the MedicalProfessionals offer a distinct perspective from those of the parties tothis matter, presenting separate and focused arguments as to why thedistrict court correctly denied a preliminary injunction againstCalifornia Senate Bill 1172, which prohibits sexual orientation changeefforts (“SOCE”).3.
 
Specifically, the Medical Professionals seek leave to respondto Plaintiffs-Appellants’ arguments that minor sexual abuse can changea person’s sexual orientation and that SOCE is an appropriatetherapeutic response to sexual abuse.
See
Plaintiffs-Appellants’Opening Br. at 45 (suggesting minors who are “molested by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky child sex abuser,” may “begin[] to have urges to actout sexually in the way [they were] abused” (
i.e.
, homosexually), andwill therefore need treatment to reverse their sexual orientation).
