Alabama: Forced castration for sex offenders who abuse children

In virtue of a new law passed in the US State of Alabama, those convicted of sexually abusing children under 13 years will undergo chemical castration treatment.

The castration treatment will start one month before their parole release date and will be at their expense. This treatment will consist of injections or tablets which remove the sex-drive making sexual activity impossible.

Treatment can only be stopped after the the Court evaluates the offender and is satisfied that treatment is no longer necessary. Stopping the treatment of one’s own accord would be considered a breach of parole conditions which would result in an offender being sent back to prison.

Treatment is reversible and once treatment is discontinued, sexual activity can be resumed.

Forced chemical castration is a controversial practice, which some believe violates fundamental human rights.
