Did Alabama pass a law that requires some sex offenders to undergo chemical castration? Are the people in Alabama the most unsophisticated?

people in the US or does it go even lower than this? Do you think sex offenders should be castrated?

    Yes Alabama passed a chemical castration law in 2019. But it was not the first state to pass similar laws. Unlike surgical castration, where the gonads are removed through an incision in the body, chemical castration does not remove organs, nor is it a form of sterilization. Chemical castration is generally considered reversible when treatment is discontinued, although permanent effects in body chemistry can sometimes be seen, In 1996 California was the first U.S. state to specify the use of chemical castration for repeat child molesters as a condition of their parole, following the passage of a modification to Section 645 of the California penal code .This law stipulates castration for anyone convicted of child molestation with a minor under 13 years of age if they are on parole after their second offense. Offenders may not reject the intervention although they may elect surgical castration instead of ongoing DMPA injections.

    The passage of this law led to similar laws in other states such as Florida's Statute Section 794.0235 which was passed into law in 1997. As in California, treatment is mandatory after a second offense.

    At least seven other states, including Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Oregon, Texas and Wisconsin, have experimented with chemical castration.[

    Should the gay degenerates of today be castrated?

    If no, why do you care what other people are turned on by?

    Does not America always like to claim the government has no business in the nation's bedrooms?

    Hypocrites.

    I believe I read it was for sex crimes against anyone under 13. And yes I do.

    If it actually prevented future sexual assaults, I would support it for second-time offenders on adults and anyone found guilty of sexually abusing a child. But, it doesn't prevent future assaults, because most rapes are about power and deviant behavior, not at all about sex.

    That would be pointless. Unconstitutional.

    Actually, it only reduces your sex drive. It doesn't actually castrate you.

    I would have no problem with doing something like that, except it likely wouldn't work.

    ' Most research in the area puts sexual desire low on the list of reasons people assault children. The best predictor of sexual assault is not libido, research has shown, but “an early and persistent general propensity to act in an antisocial manner during childhood and adolescence.” '

      Being a victim of abuse is another predictor of a sexual predator.
