Alabama Passes Bill Forcing Child Sex Abusers To Pay For Their Own Castration

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed the HB 379 bill on Wednesday after being introduced by Republican State Representative Steve Hurst.

Alabama lawmakers have passed a bill for a new law that will force child sex abusers (pedophiles) whose victims were under 13 to pay for their own castration before they are released from jail.

The new Alabama law will see child sex abusers and molesters; pedophiles forced to undergo chemical castration, with drugs used to suppress their sexual urges. Anyone who refuses to do so will be considered in violation of their parole and kept in prison.

Attempting to explain the reasoning behind the controversial proposal, Hurst told CBS42:

‘They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime. ‘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 also believes that this bill could prevent pedophiles from targeting children, and help reduce the number of child sex offenses that take place.
