Montgomery, AL — Child predators are a serious problem in the land of the free. Nearly every month news stories about sting operations netting dozens of child molesters attempting to meet children for sex. The sick problem of pedophilia knows no demographic and everyone from the unemployed to high-level government officials have been swept up in these dragnets—many of whom are repeat offenders. In regard to repeat offenders, Alabama just passed legislation that could prevent them from happening.

This week, lawmakers in Alabama passed a bill that will require child molesters to be castrated. The stipulation is simple, if anyone is convicted of a sex crime against a child under the age of 13, they will be chemically castrated by 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,” said the sponsor of HB 379, State Representative Steve Hurst, R-Calhoun County.

“They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime,” said Hurst.

Hurst’s reasoning behind the bill is to be a deterrent for first-time and repeat offenders.

“If we do something of this nature it would deter something like this happening again in Alabama and maybe reduce the numbers,” said Hurst.

Currently, Texas, Florida, and California have laws on the books for repeat offenders to be both chemically or surgically castrated, but it is a voluntary choice by the victimizer.

Alabama is the first state to pass legislation which would require castration for child molesters. If Gov. Kay Ivey signs the bill, it would require child sex offenders aged 21 and older to be chemically castrated before leaving prison.

Opponents of the bill note that this is a violation under the 8th Amendment of the constitution which is there to prevent cruel and unusual punishment. If people go to jail and follow through with their entire sentence, this is supposed to be the way the law works and they are not supposed to suffer for the rest of their lives.
