    rehabilitation in state sanctioned facilities

    The bill defines rehabilitation programs as those that the board of Utah volunteers would deem qualified in "assist[ing] homosexuals in reasserting their moral heterosexual nature and transition out of a gay identity and lifestyle." It would also give members of the board the right to subpoena gays and lesbians, mandate that gays and lesbians disclose their sexual orientation to law enforcement officers, and force testimony from witnesses to an individual’s sexual practices if an individual invokes his or her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

    I have ugly visions of "Clockwork Orange" in my head.

    Additionally,

    protests against the law would be made illegal.

    Hey teabaggers....maybe you should actually read some parts of that Constitution you carry around to shove under everyone elses' nose.
