Chemical Castration: Alabama Enacts New Paedophile Law - It's About Time Too!
A clear message to paedophiles!
Pedophilia (alternatively spelt paedophilia) is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.
The law requires anyone "convicted of a sex offence involving a person under the age of 13"
to undergo chemical castration.
***Official - Alabama has signed into law a bill that requires some convicted paedophiles to undergo chemical castration***
Under the law, those found guilty of a sex offence against anyone under the age of 13 will have to start sex-drive medication to lower it,
a month before being released on parole, or remain inside.
A court will decide when it is no longer necessary. (Hopefully they'll do this justice) - Many of us don't believe in Justice Of Courts anymore!
"It is about time we stood up and addressed this horrible crime that destroys so many."
There are now seven states, including Louisiana and Florida, with chemical castration laws.
The bill was signed into law by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on Monday.
"This is a step toward protecting children in Alabama,"
Offenders will be required to pay for the medication.
The measure was proposed by Republican representative Steve Hurst.
He said he had been affected by hearing an account from a foster care organisation of a small child being sexually assaulted.
The bill has been criticised by the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama. Executive director Randall Marshall told AL.com:
"It's not clear that this actually has any effect and whether it's even medically proven.
Its a mile stone forward, we think this is absolutely the right way to go, we need to adopt the same method here in the UK.
I would for sure be happy to accept this as a bill of law in the UK, as i'm sure every other parent would.
So, What is chemical castration?
The Actual treatment, usually administered in a tablet form or by injection, blocks testosterone production and affects a person's sex drive.
However it is usually reversed when treatment is discontinued.
In 2009, a number of prisoners in the UK took part in a pilot scheme where they were chemically castrated.
It was trialled with volunteer offenders with a "high level of sexual arousal or intense sexual fantasies or urges".
Criminal psychiatrist Don Grubin said that those trialled reported "marked changes in their lives".
Indonesia passed a law authorising chemical castration
Very Mixed Results. But, the message is clear. "Leave our kids alone."
Back in 2016, Indonesia passed a law authorising chemical castration, minimum sentences and execution for convicted paedophiles.
At the time, Prijo Sidipratomo from the Indonesian Doctors Association branded it "harmful" and "against human rights".
