    I don't think the US would adopt such a measure because it is obviously against the Constitution. Although one would suggest that a pedophile is a disgusting creature, it is also true that a pedophile has a right to happiness. What is to say that a pedophile doesn't also enjoy the company of non-pedophiles?

    I don't see how this is cruel and unusual or otherwise unconstitutional. The effects of the drug aren't permanent.

    Chemical castration is a generally good method to allow convicted sex offenders to be released from prison and be generally positive that they will not reoffend while on the drugs that cause the "castration"

    Provided it was a condition of probation, and that if they missed an injection they would be thrown back in jail I am generally fine with it.


    As I understand it, it is a very effective method for reducing reoffending.

    If it were a surgical castration I would be against it for the reson you suggest.

    However had you read the article you may have noticed it mentioned a chemical castration, meaning that drugs needed to be taken to continue the effect.

    The effects of being punched in the face aren't permanent either, that doesn't mean it isn't cruel.

    edit: And I'd much rather get punched in the face repeatedly than be chemically castrated.

    I agree with this but can't give the OP a thanks because of his inappropriate dig at the Catholic Church.

    The criminal acts by (a relatively small number) of priests is inexcusable and the church's handling was shameful, a total disgrace.

    That doesn't change the FACT that Catholic Charities have had a profound and positive effect on more people than all other Christian ministries combined. The number of Catholic schools, universities, hospitals, missions, shelters and charities dwarfs all other western religious organizations.

    The Catholic priests and nuns that I know personally have always driven second-hand cars, lived in apartments, and taken their vows of poverty seriously.

    I don't see what's so cruel about it. It doesn't hurt them at all or mutilate their body. Honestly, if it was called something other than "chemical castration," would you have a problem with the actual procedure?

    Like that's not a blatant appeal to emotion. It is almost like talking about whole body imaging and airport security. Not having WBI doesn't make your risk of death by terrorism any greater when flying [everyone still gets checked], chemical castration or the lack therefore, is not the life-or-death difference between children getting raped by pedophiles acting on their urges or not. [wait, didn't Penn & Teller do an episode of Bullsh*t on stranger danger? *hunts on YouTube*]
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    I have a problem with people making my penis not work, yes.

    Edit: And anyone who actually has a penis would consider this to be cruel
