Under a bill recently passed by Alabama lawmakers, a court would order chemical castration for someone convicted of a sex crime against a child under the age of 13 according to WIAT.
If Gov. Kay Ivey signs the bill, it would require child sex offenders aged 21 and older to be chemically castrated before leaving prison.
The bill, known as HB 379, was introduced by Republican State Rep Steve Hurst of Calhoun County, which is in the northeast part of the state.
“I had people call me in the past when I introduced it and said, ‘Don’t you think this is inhumane?’ I asked them, ‘What’s more inhumane than when you take a little infant child and you sexually molest that infant child when the child cannot defend themselves or get away, and they have to go through all the things they have to go through?’ If you want to talk about inhumane, that’s inhumane,” Hurst told WIAT.
According to the legislation, the Alabama Department of Public Health would give medication that reduces or blocks testosterone production.
State Rep. Juandalynn Givan said the proposed legislation is far-reaching.
“You have to deal with the mind of a predator,” she said. “You don’t worry about the physical body parts. You have to deal with makes them do what they do.”
Treatment would begin at least a month before the inmate is released from prison, with treatments continuing until a court decides, according to the bill.
