General-purpose: To Inform
● I was watching the news one day and I was shocked to hear about a technique never
knew existed. A technique that delivers justice and helps society move one step forward.
Alabama of all states shocked me when they decided to pass a law to chemically
castrate sex offenders. This was the first time I’ve heard about this and decided to share
my knowledge with you all.
Specific purpose: chemical castration
Central idea: Today I will be informing you all on the What, Where, The benefits, and the
controversy that surrounds chemical castration on sex offenders.
1. What is chemical castration?
a. Chemical castration is the use of an aphrodisiac drug to lower sexual desire and
libido, with the minimum treatment lasting about three to five years. Certainly
there about 11 drugs that effectively lower sexual desire. But out of the 11 drugs,
three are really popular. LIBIDO is a person’s overall sexual drive or desire
Certain drugs such as Cyproterone acetate is an antiandrogen that blocks
testosterone. Which causes a reduction of sexual desire and sex drive.
Birth control pills also a lower level of sex hormones because women can
also be sex offenders
Estrogen is one of the most popular drugs used on male sex offenders
because it decreases sex levels by a lot.
2. Where is chemical castration practiced?
a. Certainly there are about 8 states that allow for chemical castrations while there
are about 14 countries who practice chemical castration.
California was the first state to use chemical castration for child molesters
as a condition of their parole. Florida soon followed in their footsteps and
a similar law was passed in 1997. In the years to come states like
Georgia,Iowa,louisiana, Montana,Oregon,Texas,and Wisconsin have
experimented with chemical castration.
Countries like Argentina,Australia,Czech Republic,
Denmark,Estonia,India,Israel, Moldova, New Zealand, Poland,South
Korea, Spain, Sweden, and Russia.
Argentina pass in march of 2010, Australia in 2010, Europe since the
1960s, India was outrage for the rape of young woman in Delhi and
passed a law. Israel passed a law on may 2009 for two brothers convicted
of child molstestion. New Zealand in 2009 and convicted 2000 offenders
to go on chemical castration. Russia in 2011 passed a law that offenders
who have been charged with sex offender charges on children under the
age of 14 will be sentenced to chemcial castuatration.
South Korea being one of the youngest countries to pass the law on July
3. The benefits of chemcial castration on sex offenders.
a. Chemical castration has a lot of benefits that differ from its counterpart surgical
Chemical castration using antiandrogen reduces circulating testosterone
to very low levels.
In addition it also results in very low low levels of sexual offending.
Although Chemical castration is life long for offenders, it might allow
sexual offenders to have a healthy normal sexual activity.
Chemical castration is realistic. It is more realistic then putting offenders
in electric cuff, or hanging them, or even killing them.
And finally the biggest benefit is the general public. As more states and
countries start to enforce chemical castration the general public will feel
safer during big holidays such as Halloween. It creates a sense of
progress and hopefulness.
4. The controversy surrounding chemical castration
a. However, not everyone is riding the chemical castration train. Some even
referred to chemical castration as the return to the dark ages.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida opposes to the
administration of any drugs that can be dangerous or have irreversible
effects on the human body. However they do not oppose of the use of
antiandrogen drugs for sex offenders.
Law professor John stinnefird has argued that chemical castration is a
cruel and harsh punishment. He believes that it controls the mind of the
sex offender to render incapable of any type of sexual desire and causes
them to develop female like physical traits.
Some people have argued that based on the 14th amendment, the
procedure fails to guarantee equal protection. In other words, the
procedure falls mainly upon male sex offenders.
a. All in all, chemical castration is not an end to all problems for sexual offenders,
the procedure is still being held to a moral compass and struggles to be pass
throughout all 50 states. But knowing about the layers that come with chemical
castration is helpful.
