"Some members of the Alabama House say that violent sex offenders who prey on children should be forced to undergo surgical castration to ensure that they do not hurt another child.
In an effort to strengthen a bill toughening the state's laws against sex offenders, the House added an amendment Thursday by Rep. Steve Hurst, D-Munford, that would require those convicted of violent sex crimes against children under 12 to undergo the operation to remove their sex drive." (source)
I realize that pedophilia is a mental sickness and a crime more of anger than of a sexual nature --but it will be a lot harder to commit the crime without the TOOL. I also know this will never go through because every civil liberties group under the sun will be wailing in the streets… but a girl can dream.
This is an interesting website I came across regarding this matter.
