One of the largest Republican party's in the country now endorses "reparative therapy" for gays and lesbians.

Better known as trying to change a person's sexual orientation through psychological means, the controversial practice has now been added to the party's platform in Texas.

The American Psychological Association warns the practice is dangerous and could lead to serious psychological harm if used on children.

But supporters argue it fits their beliefs, and draws voters.

Republicans did agree to remove anti-gay language that states "homosexuality tears at the fabric of society," off the state's party platform.
